You can check out some of the tutorials on this board and get a good idea of how it's done. You don't need much; wood, Devcon 2 Ton epoxy, stainless steel wire (I use .029" 180lb test leader wire), a 12"x12" sheet of polycarbonate (e.g. Lexan) for the lip (if needed), lead or silver solder and a soldering iron to put in the ballast, and whichever colors of aerosol latex paint you like (and use a flat white to basecoat before coloring). I use a disk sander to taper baits and a Dremel sanding drum to round off edges. You will probably want other tools and supplies to fine tune subsequent baits but this short list will do to start.
