Turned out nice except I got excited and touched the bait before the paint was totally dry. Other than that not a bad looking pattern.

Nice job Brad. How do you go about fixing that gill plate? Can you just paint it a different color for a cover up?

That just gave me an idea.... I wonder what it would look like to use like a small wire brush or toothbrush or something to make it look like bite scars or scratches. I had baits that were ate up and every time you threw it, it would get clobbered. Just thinking out loud about how you could duplicate that effect and if it would really make any difference. You know, make the bait look really injured. Hmmmm stir

Well the baits were a epic failure, I dipped them in ac1315 sealer and the paint literally ran all the way off. I'm back to bare blanks, I sprayed another one in chrome and I'm going to let it dry 24 hours to see if that makes any difference. Might be a bait I have to use Devcon on, and dip in ac1315 after the Devcon has cured.

played with a couple new colors on a 1.5 and a 2.5 this afternoon. everything was shot over chrome so we'll see if it sticks when i go to do the devcon. worked ok last time. nothing fancy. i've learned to keep everything simple when you're working over chrome. still have to hit the back with some detail moss green to deepen it.

I need to go over there, they have a bunch of stuff I "need". Have been thumbing through their catalog the last few days.

they do carry a ton of stuff. i wish they would upgrade their blanks. not the best quality compared to what we usually buy.

Nice looking bait. I was thinking a red bleeding gill on those scuffs would be an interesting characteristic.

Really like the bright silver paint but I've been reading that the solvents in 1315 (and others) work like paint remover on some paints....I'm assuming the silver was from a rattle can?? If so the idea of using D2T over the silver is your best bet. 2cents

yeah the chrome is from a rattle can. i shoot it over a krylon primer and do use devcon as a clear coat. just finished a couple blanks with it that are curing. here are pics before the clear. the devcon really made the colors i used pop.
primer, chrome, fluoro orange belly, blue glitter folkart gills, metallic peridot folkart back, detail moss green to darken the back, devcon2t. i'll post some other pics when the devcon has set up. it's a little milky when you first put it on and clears as it sets up.
