Starting to get the hang of it...
« on: 05/24/16 18:04 UTC »
Just powder painting the slabs wasn't doing it for me.  So I broke out the airbrush and got to work.  If you see white and chartreuse in the same compartment it's because those baits are white on one side and chartreuse on the other.

Uh oh... I think you might have just stepped over the threshold that leads into custom crank bait coloring.

Do-it Shad bait/slab.  Those are all poured in standard Do-It molds.

I'm not into crank baits.  Don't really fish them much beyond a Rat-L-Trap and those in Chrome.

Count yourself as one of the fortunate ones.  ;)

Those do look nice!
You should try doing a few in holographic foil.
I posted a tutorial awhile back.
Airbrush over the foil and then topcoat.
Makes an awesome looking slab.
I do that with a few slab jigs from my Shawn Collins molds.

Been thinking about doing that.  But not quite there yet.

Some Shad Bait lures.  I did all three sizes but only took a picture of the 1.5 ounce.







Over 150 baits in the "Dream Box", so called because I know lots of guys dream of getting their hands on it.

Very nice assortment of slabs!  So you ditched the powder paint or used an airbrush with the powder paint? 
I just got the do it shad bait mold n was fixing to make several up.  I really like the shad spoon lures also.  I also just got a gun to try my hand with spraying powder....have always just fluid bathed and tapped for painting with powder.

If your airbrushing; you must be top coating when everything is finished?

As clumsy as I am an airbrush wouldn't help me!!LOL  But it would help painting blade baits and I really don't need another addiction for making fishing lures
