I found another good way to hold the netting last night..........."chip clips"......the ones you use to put on open bags of snacks. This worked very well ! I hit the local dollar store today and found a 5 pack of chip clips for a buck.

Well, I scoured the dollar store and the grocery store for those mesh sponges with no luck. Guess I'll have to go to Wal-Mart.
Good news is I did find some nifty combs for masking. Also found some non-slip drawer liner with a really nice mesh pattern. Anybody ever tried scale masking with that stuff? For a buck, I had to try it.

I used the shelf liner for lateral lines,for a largemouth looking plug. The shelf liner I had lying around-- had rows of 2 differ sized diamond shaped holes.....just used blue painters tape to mask areas I didnt want paint on. Made Horizontal lines.

The way I hold my netting is I cut a piece of netting in circle about 7" in diameter. Then, I use #2 splitshot and crimp them every 1/2" or so around the edge of the netting. Then I just drape the netting over the lure, arrange the netting, and shoot. The lead weights hold everything in place perfect.

Wow, some really good and creative tips on this site. I am buying my first airbrush this weekend, and can't wait to get started with some of these ideas. I have been using spray paint on lures for a while now, the posicle stick idea would have come in handy then.

I like this idea! I had been using my old plug knockers. Bell sinkers with snap clip. Drape the mesh over bait , then hook several weights through both sides of the mesh underneath the bait. It worked really slick.
