Howdy guys,

I've been really interested in painting my own baits, but I don't want to go all in on a super nice airbrush/compressor until I know that the hobby is going to stick (if that makes sense).

I've found one on amazon for like 50 bucks that I am about ready to pull the trigger on, but I'd like to know what y'all think.

Thanks!

Master airbrush kits are a good place to start. From my experience, it's extremely important to properly thin your paint when using Master airbrushes...they're a little finicky. Good luck with your painting.

You can pick up an Iwata Revolution CR for under $100. It's a great little airbrush for the $'s and sprays everything from glitter to ink with no problems. Comes with a .5mm needle and tip. Invest a few bucks on a .3mm needle and tip for fine detail work. Just a few basic colors in opaque and transparent should get you started. As for paint...spend a few more dollars and get Wicked or Auto-Air colors from Createx. If you want to keep your airbrush in top shape use the appropriate reducers and cleaners, not witches brew. Good paint makes a big difference...reduces and sprays better, dries harder and sticks to plastic better. Once you get accustomed to spraying opaque and transparent paints get a couple of bottles of pearlescent colors...Pearl White, Pearl Gold and Pearl Silver should do. Use 30 minute Devcon two part epoxy reduced with denatured alcohol for your final clear coat. Its cheap, available, will give your lures a nice shine and dries hard as nails. If you screw up or don't like your work use the denatured alcohol to wipe the paint off before using D2T. Practice, practice, practice...the more you paint the better you get.
