A few new pics of painted baits...Createx and Flex Coat. Foiled baits are mylar wrapped, and Reynolds foil wrapped, then Flex Coated. Will put some more up at my yahoo photo site in next couple of days. Any and all feedback is welcomed.

Nice work Dave, I really like the purp/chart. Is that a colored foil? or painted over foil?

Good looking bunch of baits!!
I really like the natural red craw.
Are those Stamina crank bodies??

Couple of answers:
1) foil on that purple/chart bait is a chartreuse colored foil from Reynolds (craft stores in the scrapbook section). You can paint the body and then wrap a transparent mylar foil over the paint...like the mylar wrapped baits.
Note: the foiled baits look a little "wrinkled" in the pics...those wrinkles are in the foil, under the clearcoat. Surface of the bait after final clearcoat is smooth and slick.
2) the "bandit" bodies are the 3" med divers from stamina, canalso buy in bulk from a couple of places. The "wart-a-like" bodies are imports, and are not original warts, but almost impossible to tell the difference. They fish just like the old warts. There also some shallow fat baits, and some N's (from janns).

Those paint jobs are flawless. Beautiful work.
