When you guys paint, do you always have one side that looks better "to you" than the other? The longer you look at it the worse it gets.... Should you try to fix it or leave well enough alone and peddle it for more bait money??

Yes usually the left for some reason- I don't sell them, so it isn't a problem- as longm as they swim, the fish don't care.pete

Yep! I know exactly what you mean. My rule is that if I notice it right away, it gets repainted. If I have to look at it twice, rotate the bait, flip it upside down, to see it (by then I'm really annoyed), but it ships. LOL

Always the left for me too! I dont sell either, so I just live with it. Its not that big of a difference.

You guys hold the airbrush with your right hand? I'm a lefty and the right side usually comes out better for me.

I build for myself and friends. If it's enough for a friend to notice, it gets repainted. If I let it go, it just sits in the crank box whispering "Fix me! Fix me!" until I give in. Sometimes I hate the little #9!@#!

Quite funny , on a German site there was also a discussion on the same topic just about one or two weeks ago !
Most opinions in there were also saying , that this really depends on whether the lure painter is a left ,-or right handed person , resulting into which side of the lure would turn out better .

this is a little of subject, but I can relate it to this problem. It makes me think, every power tool out their has a laser guide on them these days for very similar reasons. I sometimes wish my airbrush had one, especially for doing small detail w/out stencils.

I believe that this is due to eye dominace. Maybe a combonation of both eye and hand dominace. I have no science to back this up just an opinion.

I happens to me, too. I hold my lures in my left hand and paint them with my right. When I first noticed it, I looked at the brush, and I was holding it kind of at an angle to the lure, not at right angles. I try to watch it as I paint, but it still happens.
If it's enough to annoy me, I repaint it.
It typically happens after I've scaled the lure, and I'm doing the back and shoulders. That's one reason I spray the lures with pastel fixative after they're scaled, so I can wash off my screwups and only have to redo the back and shoulders.
