Photo Finishing Foil and Faux Finishes Tutorial

9 posts in this topic

I've gotten a few requests so here's a copy of what was lost in the crash:

The following Tutorial is for those of us who want to create very realist finishes with a minimum of hassle. This is not to say it is the only or best way to achieve that goal, but I found it to be a very viable alternative to decals, and much less costly. Truth be told, I also find it easier to do. In addition, the supplies are more readily available. With very little practice, anyone can get wonderful results. I developed this technique after realizing that it is not practical to print on foil. Doing so, is a tribute to Murphy

Thanks for the re-post Husky. As long as my computer doesn't crash, I'll have it for future reference.

Thanks,

Eric

Thnaks again too! I forgot that spray adhesive was used. I have been using a 5 min epoxy to put the foil on the body. Too thick at messy. I will try the spray next. Bruce

Thanks for a repost of the tutorial. I am just starting to make wooden baits. I wonder if a tutorial section could be set up to place this in?

Thanks again

Can this technique be done on the plastic bodies that many of the sites sell? I've just started getting into tackle making and I'm a computer whiz. So taking photos or creating my own graphics in Photoshop is what I do daily.

Absolutely. You just have to size the images to fit the bodies, which for you, should be a cinch!

Sweet, I'll have to look into that. I haven't had to much luck catching fish on crankbaits yet, but I just got back into fishing alittle over a month ago.
