  1. Hi, Well I'm getting started in lure painting, I recently purchased an IWATA ECLIPSE and 3 sets or CREATEX (pearlized, opaque, tropical) paint, I have not yet painted a single lure yet. so my question is did I really need to purchase CREATEX paint or is there other brand name paints that are cheaper that work just as well? HOBBY LOBBY $4.99 per 2oz KINDA PRICEY for me. luckily I came across sets that where much cheaper at COASTAIRBRUSH.COM. So one last question the airbrush I baught was origanally $210 dollars at Hobby Lobby but I had a 40% off coupon. Was purchasing this expensive airbrush needed? OK well I hope I can get those two questions answered. THANK YOU much ahead of time.
  2. I have made a crank bait out of Balsa that I like the action of. I have a template that I made of the side profile, but I can't make the crank bait body exactly the same from wood. Can you make molds of a crank bait body out of silicone and then make them out of resin. If so, how would I get the lip and weight into the crankbait? What silicone and resin would be best for it?
  3. Alright guys, I Need all of your help! Does anyone know how to Custom paint a Deps Slide Swimmer 250? I have never tried to paint one and l Really want to learn. Any tips would be very helpful! Thanks Guys, Brad
  4. I am a Canadian who is getting into custom lure painting. However I am having issues finding crankbait blanks that are cost efficient. Purchasing blanks from many of the large US suppliers is quite costly right now with the Canadian dollar at .74 cents to the dollar, before the large shipping costs. I am wondering if anyone knows any cheaper routes I can take to get quality blanks delivered to Canada. I found found numerous sellers on DHgate and Alibaba, but am unsure of their quality and cant justify ordering 100units at MOQ if they're non functional. Thanks in advance

  13. This is a Bluegill Colorway I did not to long ago, I feel that bluegill is a harder color for me to paint. Sometimes I just cant seem to pull it off. Any tips would be greatly appreciated Thanks Guys, Brad
  14. Hey Guys, This is just an idea. Why don't we have a thread in the hard bait section Just for reference photos? I think it would be an awesome idea to have everyone on the forms post there own reference photos, including pictures you have taken of fish you have caught. I think it would be cool to have a bunch of different photos of different fish from different places. What do you guys think? Thanks, Brad

    Natural Crappie

    Natural crappie pattern. This was achieved by using Irridescent Pearl white, Transparent May Green, then using an artists sponge dipped in black paint for the crappie markings. Then reduced some black paint for the back and around the eyes as well as slightly over the top sides to enhance the body markings. Great for clear water applications
  16. I hope this link work's having trouble with the attach link button.... I put together a little video of all the pic's I had collecting dust on my computer. I quit painting a few years ago so figured I'd make this just to give you new painters some ideas for pattern's.. If you want to copy any of my pattern's feel free to. I'll ask any question's I can just shoot them to me.. Enjoy....

  23. This is a RC 2.5 Crankbait I did in baby bass color. What do you guys think?
  24. Hi, i have started making crankbaits out of basswood and the first few have had a really good action to them and I want to produce them quicker without the use of a duplicator machine. I was wondering if you could share some of the jigs that you use to speed up the process. (Ex. setups for quickly drilling belly holes, lip slots, sanding, etc.)
  25. Does anyone out there know where I can get custom designed lexan crankbait lips fairly cheap? I have a couple of non-standard designs I would like to try out, but I can't find the lengths or shapes I want on any of the "usual" lure making sites, i.e. Barlows, Janns, LPO, etc.
