New Photo Lure

7 posts in this topic

Here is my shot at the Photo Lure of a Dee Bait Imitation of a Rock Bass. I got the color matching down pretty good and applied a clear coat of Glitter Paint. It actually swam pretty good at the test pool! Tell me what you think! Cody

Great Job!!!!!!! I tried to make one of a sunfish. The application of the picture was the easiest part. How did you get the top and belly to match the picture? Would it be possible to make the picture alittle bigger and fold the top portion over to meet the other side? The same thing for the belly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Again...Great Job!!!!!

Heres how I did mine.. a little different than Lincoya suggested. I carved my lure out [b]first[/b].. the Dee bait imitation (AGAIN!) sanded it and cut it and also drilled the holes for the screw eyes. Copied the photo off the net and saved it to MS Paint. I then [b]resized the picture [/b] in MS Paint to fit my lure I already created. Just a different approach to it thats all. As far as getting the paints to match..... thats the hard part, other than the split rings. The only thing to that is mixing the colors properly. I guess my Fine Arts degree has paid off! I had 2 years of Color Study, and 3 years of Painting! :| Its the tuff part, and it does take time. There is no pointers, I can give on it. Just try to figure out what colors make up the color your trying to create. Find the base color, and mix the hues then the remaining colors. [b]Be careful [/b] it could only take one drop of color to make a difference! I also used the very inexpensive Wal-Mart paint for like .44 cents a bottle! I found the base color of the top and bottom. On one I had to add some white, then a small tint of yellow. The other color went a little different, it went blackih brown. TRY NOT TO USE BLACK IN A HURRY! I used a red, then a darker brown. Then a small half drop of black. Im inclosing a link for a book to give you a good idea. This might be the cook book information you could use to mix your colors to use for a later time. Im not suggesting you buy this book, but use the principals here to be able to go back and mix your colors faster.

Heres another "Basic Mixing" for you to look at.
