I haven't thought of making a stencil to fit the spots...I actually fit the same photos over many different shapes and contours, so it may be more trouble than it is worth. If I ever decide to stick with just painting Rat-L-Traps, then I'll definately give it a whirl... Thanks again! PS - I love what you've been doing with the water slide decals, I'm gonna start fooling around with those soon.

I use createx auto air . I dont add anything to it , just paint . It does get expensive at 23 bucks for a 4 oz bottle . I attached a picture of the hood to my john deere tractor I am restoreing or dumpning money into . But this is a flip flop color .

more pics I hit submit by accident . Look at the full color reflection in the paint . The clear coat I use is 78 bucks for a pint . It works well on some of my bigger odd lures but I still love the flexcoat . I am starting to get into house of kolor paint and some paint imported from japan . But man you cant beat that water clean up !!! That dupont clear coat is nasty stuff , very nasty and will overspray every thing around it !!! So I had to put in a big old nasty exhaust fan . I also just ordered a 200 dollar resperator which will be worth it cause I got all in a rush first time I used the clear and clear coated my nose hairs and I do belive a little bit of my brain .

What do you think of the HOK paints. I have checked out the site before and have thought about ordering some. Also, where can I check out the paint from Japan. I have talked to some about it. But I can't seem to find a site to check it out. I know that a fellow named ITO that owns Megabass uses a paint that costs $3000.00 a lb. to spray some reels from Diawa.

The paint from japan is kinda a luck thing , the guy I talked to had some one bring it over so I am not sure on that , but from the looks its some gooood stuff !! I like house of kolors , my friend is working at an autobody dealer so I have gotten free paint . I have not trid HOK expensive flip flops and such yet , but their regular colors are real nice .

You won't be disapointed with house of kolor paints. They have been around for a long time. Their Flip-Flop is neat stuff, if you shoot light coats and build the effect gradually. Taking in to consideration that it will intesify once the clear is overlayed. The effects one can achieve with pearls are hard to beat.
I knew of a bike painter that could take different colors of powder pearls and stage them at different depths in the clear for some bizzare effects. He would take a certain grade of sand paper (he wouldn't divulge what grade) and score the finish with a straight pull in one direction. With the intention of leaving straight score lines in the paint. He then would dust a light coat of pearl on, and lightly wet sand the area after it dried. Then spray a light coat of clear. Upon the clear drying he would then repeat the process again, except he would score at an angle to the original scoring and would use a different color of pearl. After he had done this several times with numerous colors of pearls and angles, well the tips of the flames came alive. With some tinkering this might work on a lure. Something else to think about you can take a natural sponge and dip it in pearl and dap it onto a lure for a nice natural looking effect.
