Working on deep 1.5 stencils lately.... trying to figure out how to make and use them properly noidea . After lots of trial and error a few stencils came together. Decided to use them to come up with another Bream looking pattern. This was the first attempt sick ...pretty depressing, huh?

Considered turning off the lights, pouring the paint out, and chucking the entire lot in the dumper...reconsidered that thought hmmm and decided to try again. Came up with these.

The stencils were all made from old milk carton plastic and cut with a burner and Xacto knife. Pretty simple stuff...draw what you want on an unpainted lure blank...put the stencil over it...trace the image on the stencil and start cutting. Lots of overlays needed to get what you want...expect a few major failures along the way. Think I'll flush_2 that first one texas

Beautiful. I certainly wouldn't call the first one a failure but will give you kudos for your persistence. Art is often a prodigy of failure.

you must have posted the wrong picture or something of your fail. seriously!??! most guys would kill to have that as one of their "fails". heck i would.
you know one mans fail is another mans dream come true! just so you don't feel bad about it, i'll take the hit and use the dreadful fail so you don't have to suffer the indignation of somebody accidentally seeing it in your box. one for the team!!

Yes those blanks are 100% airbrushed. I've been experimenting with home made stencils. Used them for the vertical bars and stripes...gill edges and gill tab. Prefer free handed painting but stencils make things move along faster. Occasionally I use ink for fine detail work but, its very difficult to do...at least it is for me. texas
