This is only a very recent hobby for me. I painted a few crankbaits a couple months back, and I've only recently had some free time to start up again. As a touring musician, I don't have a ton of free time, but when I do I am typically into things like woodworking and fishing. Normally I will build things like guitars or furniture, but a few months back I decided to start trying to build my own wooden fishing lures. In the process, I did research on things like finishing techniques, and discovered artists like you guys were doing amazing paint jobs on blank crankbait bodies. Anyway, I took out his inspiration for my wooden lures, though initially I was using rattle cans and brushes to finish them. I eventually decided that I really needed to get an airbrush, and that led to me ordering some blank crankbait bodies. So 30 or 40 paint jobs later, here I am! I still have an amazing amount to learn, and always look forward to seeing the baits that you guys paint, as well as reading about how you did them.
Anyway, here are a couple that I've painted recently.....nothing special, but I'm happy with my progress so far, especially since this airbrushing thing is brand-new to me.
