Just thought i'd put a thread up of some of the other lures i have painted up at the moment. Originally my main goal was to mainly paint the topwater Lures for YFW and sell them just as an hobby sort of thing. However after watching countless hours of Youtube and reading forums I now know there is alot more i can paint/create and not to pump them out quantity wise. Instead getting creative and painting for Quality and doing it more for myself.

Unfortunately I have painted up most of the blanks I originally had. I have a few hundred dollars worth of blanks, films, stencils and bits and pieces i have purchased being held as  the coronavirus hit most of the areas I purchase my gear from. So am waiting for freight companies to resume there services so i can start painting up new lures..

My main blanks I am planning to paint will be for the upcoming season. So will mainly be Trout, Redfin and Salmon lures. I have a range of Stickbaits, and metals for the Salmon. The Trout and Redfin will be a range of minnows perfect for both dams/lakes and creeks and streams.   I will keep you all up to date with the processes and what I create.  In the mean time here are a couple I have painted over the last month or so ....

Any plans to do some bigger lures for Callop?

Potentially. So many other people paint great lures for callop and cod. In saying that

Callop lure blanks are readily available as they are similiar types bass fishos use in the states... plus stencils are easy to come by for them too so they make them easyto paint... 

So if i get some interest i might. Just dont want to be stuck with them and waste $$$

Cheers all. Got some big plans and ideas running through my mind so we'll see how i go...

Tried something different tonight.... Every Lure painter seems to sign there baits with there signature, but i have fat fingers and its hard to sign on small lures so saw another idea on Youtube and decided to give it a go.... Looks really good in my opinion. just adds that special touch...

I printed on some waterslide transfer paper and then slide it onto the bait... then cleared over the top of it.... I like it as mentioned adds an special touch to a custom job.... Can only do Black fonts at the moment but once i upgrade will be doing other colours to contrast the lure i am painting.... Got something special planned with this water transfer paper, just waiting on my blanks to come!

Been thinking about what lures i will be painting to be selling for this season...

Hopefully i can figure out a good price for lures painted and rigged with good terminal tackle... 

Like mentioned previously will be concentrating on Freshwater. Mainly trout and redfin. 

And i will also be painting up Salmon lures aswell. So stay tuned for some lures coming up for sale soon. 

Also if you are after a certain style of lure you'd like to see sendme a message and i can see what i can find for you.

The great thing about painting your own lures is you can create your own style and colours... Been messing around with a few different patterns and styles just perfecting my painting skills and styles...

This photo doesn't do justice on how good this actually looks. This is an semi transparent Rainbow trout pattern that i will be rolling with when selling a few lures. I'll be looking at transparent redfin pattern and brown trout pattern aswell for the dams and creeks in SA.

This pattern is for HB tragic he asked me to paint for awhile. Now that i finally have a cleat Im happy with and a paint scheme i was satisfied with. once its finished mate ill hit you up.

This one is an 120mm sinking stickbait in an transparent pearl blue, pink and silver top. This lure looks so dam porn in the flesh!

Hoping to give a couple to some guys chasing Tuna.

These last ones are just a couple small chubby lures i painted in random colours thinking they wouldn't swim well. But actually swam straight from the get go...

Ill use these for reddies in the winter

Your finishes have really improved sBT! Some cracking looking lures there 👍

Cheers mate. A proper airbrush has helped immensely. Aswell as the Clear coat im using now it just adds an extra element to the lure. Ill keep at it. Can only improve really. 

Means by next yellowfin season i should have some pretty dope lures painted up :)

Looking sweet mate, keep the pics coming they are feeding my lure addiction perfectly 😜

Cheers mate. While i enjoy it I'll keep pumping them out. 

Biggest problem at the moment is most of my blanks come from China. And delivery times have extended out beyond a month. Im running out of lures to  paint....

Magnif!!! Cant wait to see your progress in this area, especially if you managed to get your hands on some of the larger 95mm blanks.

Keep the updates coming, always exciting to see.

Was painting up some more trout lures tonight and i stuffed the paint job on one of them. So instead of throwing it away i painted over it completely with black paint. Then decided to think outside the box... 

Grabbed some pearl paint and well the photo speaks for itself. Well i think anyway 👌

So it is opaque black as the base. Pearl green top. With an pearl Magenta body and gold stripes... 

I recko this will be one colour ill paint as one i will sell ;)

Absolutely love that one, a bit of the SX40 colour 'carmen red' on the gill plate would absolutely set that off imo. Absolute ripper of a colour.

 

Would be a demon on rainbow trout
