Well I been reading for a week, Been watching video's....Thought it was time to drop some cash and take the plundge!


I purchased a few blank baits, think I have the majority of shelf stock of paint from Hobby Lobby. I purchased the airbrush kit from Harbor Frieght, but didn't like the airbrush, so I went back to Hobby Lobby and purchased the Nano....I got my Solarez, my nail dryer, almost everything that was recomended on the 2billion posts here....


Now I do have a few issues to figure out, cause I had some blemish problems with my airbrush, but think I fixed them with a inline air filter, I also think I need a good air compressor. I struggled BAD with the toole Cloth to create scales. I had issues with it sticking to the bait once the bait dryed...I also seemed to have the paint "run" under it in places....


Well the final test here is feed back from the AMAZING guys here! I swear I wish I could thank EVER SINGLE ONE of you in person, cause this is going to be SO Much fun!
