This may be covered somewhere else and if it is just direct me there. I plan to start painting some of the unfinished hard baits that you can pick up from some of the tackel providers and I was wandering what the process is for this. I have an airbrush and I'm sure I can figure all of this out by trial and error, but I thought it might make a good post just to ask for general advice. What paints do you recommend, are there any general tricks to using the airbrush... etc.???
Anyway, thanks for any info you can give me...

drake, refer to Painting a crankbait 101. I just posted a few instructions. There are several strings with other info. If you can't find them send me a pm.
