Not toobad for you're first one.This is a hard ? to answer and not hurt any feelings.Did you seal the bait before painting? It looks a little rough or porous.Also it either looks like your paint might have been a little thin or you were holding your airbrush a little yoo close in order for it too run like that.Try holding your brush a little farther away and applying lighter coats until you reach the effect you desire. This will help with blending two colors together.These are just my opinions and I'm sure there are a lot of other guys that may be able to give better tips than me.You may want to take your pics on a white or lighter colored background also.Keep pluggin away your on the right track.

What is the bait made of? You need to do more prep work on the body untill it is baby butt smooth all of the way around. Are you using an airbrush?

it's a pretty good start, if you ask me. i think you've got some of the fundamentals down. keep at it, it all fall into place sooner than you think.

it was an old 2x4 I found in my garage from last years canes and yes I am using an airbrush.

The 2X4 was probably pine and that is fine. You did a good job at shaping the bait. The one thing that you need to do is cut the slot for the lip before you shape the bait. Cutting the slot after shaping it round is tough. By cutting the lip slot before, the slot will be square. Then when you shape the bait you can use the slot as a guide line to make sure that everything is straight. Like the other said, light coats and allowing them to dry between coats will stop the paint from running. The little bit of splatter at the bottom of the tail is probably from either not having your paint thinned enough or from too little pressure. What type of paint are you using?

Overall a good job for the first attempt. You are on the right track, just need time to get it down pat.
What type of paints are you using?? If the gold is Createx Auto Air, the best way to spray it is to put the first coat on light. Build the second coat slowly until you get the desired effect. It also helps to play with your air settings and paint viscosity to prevent spitting.
