First airbrushed baits

Recommended Posts

Below are my two very simple attempts at airbrushing.  I can say with certanty that this would have went smoother with a better airbrush.  I also need to get some alligator clips.  Trying to do the netting with one cloths pin and a binder clip was frustrating.  

I will admit that I had a practice attempt before these just to see how the gun worked and to see how some colors looked over different colors.  I hope to put that practice to use on the next attempts.  I figured i should start out very easy and work my way up.

the one on the left was supposed to mimic Bagley's baby bass color.  I went with a shad dot to make it easier. I'll add more to this post as I go along.

Nice job, buddy. I know it can be difficult to get them transitions just right. My brother does airbrushing a lot so I got to try it out a couple times. Not as easy as it looks

Had a run of a half dozen baits that were just plain ugly.   Decided to quit trying to do too much too fast and tried a sexy shad pattern.  Just realized I forgot the shad dot so I'll add that later.  Can't get much easier than this.

You have a very nice touch with an airbrush. Great fades! No need to get too fancy when your basic paint jobs look that professional.

Here is a video tutorial showing how to do fins and gill plates that may give you some good ideas moving forward. The guys name is Mikko. He is from Finland and is a world class bait builder/painter. His videos are worth checking out for anyone wanting to up their game. Keep posting your work please. You definately have what it takes.

I have no clue on the eye size.  They are what came with the larger crankbaits that I ordered odd ebay.  I only have a few left so I'll have to track them down
