Latest creation

16 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm reading the forum for a while, now I would like to contribute with my latest creation...although it's not finished until now I try to insert a picture.

I'm going to coat it with a clear epoxy layer and colour it with some kind of transparent green colour.

It has a going thru wire axis and the lip is made of lexan.

Usually I use cedar wood to carve my lures. This one is carved out of a special hardfoam, I'm experementing with and I must say it is a good material to work with.

Futher I am experimenting with foiling baits at the moment...

Here the results:

Thank you!

For the lateral line I used the tip of a ballpoint pen.

I did not sell any lures until now, maybe when there's time enough to build more lures there will be the possibility to sell a few. ;-)

Now I am waiting for a new epoxy resin for coating. I hope it will be fine to work with.

Maybe it's just some kind of believe, but I like these oversized eyes either because it imitates the minnow pattern of babyfish... ;-) Maybe there's some kind of effect to attract predatory fish...anyway, at least it appeals to the fisherman using the lure ;-)

Those big eyes are really impresive, and they give a very nice look to the lure. Maybe some of us would like to try such eyes on their own lures. May I ask how you have made them ? (materials, technology)

Regards

Hi rofish,

yes of course...

I used some kind of golden glossy carton of a candiesbox...

The pupil was made with epoxy mixed with black acrylic colour. I cut out the shape of the carton and then dipped black epoxy on the eye.
