Sexy Shad…. Sort of….
« on: 06/05/24 19:15 UTC »
Here’s #8610 medium diver from Do-It’s excellent line up of blank baits done in what was supposed to be Sexy Shad. A tad bit of operator error forced me to use the black across the back, but you can get an idea of what it should look like here.

I used Createx standard color paints on this dude and like how the bait turned out. I really liked the broad sides on this blank which allowed for some great feathering.

I hope to try a couple more in this blank and color tomorrow, hopefully with no screw ups on my part. Then I am going to tackle a sunfish pattern.

and wood ships
ships that sail the sea
but the best ships are friendships
and may they

That looks great as it is! I have several of the Strike King lures in Sexy Shad, and I like that pattern, but also like patterns with some black backs, so maybe you have painted the next hot thing in fishing!  ;D
