Im a wanna be crankbait painter.Figured it would be something to do over the cold winter months here in NY. Can you guys direct me to a kit for me to start with. A package deal would be great not looking to go cheap but also not wanting too spend a fortune.Can you give me some websites for paints and supplies .Thanks Mike

Here's a good, inexpensive brush: Airbrush and compressor combo kit. The airbrush is a Master G22, and it's very easy to use. I've had mine since June of this year, and I've had no problems with it.
Try Chicago Airbrush Supply for airbrush paint.
Hope this helps.

Nice price for that combo whittler! That top feed airbrush is definitely the way to go starting out. I only use a few drops of color for each bait, so just dripping in a bit at time, is the way to go.
With a little patience, and trial-and-error; you'll be addicted.
I bought a spiral bound notebook to practice shooting color, drawing lines and shapes on before I got painting baits. I had never even touched an airbrush before, and have NO artisitic ability.
Read everything you can about airbrushing, and also checkout some of the videos on youtube; you'll learn a lot. Before you know it, you'll impress yourself!
