but i just can't get those stripes down...
tom in sweetwater painted a pumpkinseed bait with similar stripes too:
i like tom's stripes more. he told me he does them freehand, but i have tried and ran into some serious problems. when i get the airbrush close enough to make a thin enough stripe, the air pressure makes the paint run on the bait, even when im only using about 18psi. my paint doesn't spray well below that, but maybe that is the trick. if i bring the airbrush farther away from the bait, i can't get the lines thin enough to do that double line thing. i don't want to use a stencil because they don't look very natural.
can anybody help me out with this technique? btw i have a .3mm tip.
