New Mold + New Airbrush = Lots of Fun!
« on: 10/27/20 13:25 UTC »
I recently picked up the necessary airbrush equipment (should have done this years ago) and a mold i have been looking for forever.  I have found myself spending more time making and painting these shiver minnow style baits than pouring plastics.  Here's a few examples of what I've been playing around with..

Nice stuff Jake. Which airbrush did you get?

Are you vacu-forming your own stencils? I have everything to make the vacuum chamber using a large shop vac for suction but an waiting to mess with it until I am finished  with deer hunting and processing.

Hey Tom thank you!  i picked up the Paasche airbrush off the Do-it site initially.  Recently i got an Iwata Eclipse and really like it.  Both airbrushes would do the job, but the Iwata had the capability of smaller detail so i have been playing around with that one lately.  i made a vacuum chamber out of a tin cookie box and it works awesome!  very simple, and with a dremil, made some stencils.

I especially like the black/silver tiger... that should be real a lip yanker!

Im hoping so!  With Moonshine not making a pattern like that, i figured it would be a good one to try out.  Purples and Blacks have always been my starting points.
