My latest project

Softy asked for some callop lures so after some research and finding some to suit the depths and conditions for the variety of ways people will fish them. 

So after 2 weeks they finally arrived. 

So decided to prep and start placing the sealent undercoat and base coat tonight to let it dry overnight to add the next colours to it... 

Softy gave me a photo of one of his favourite lure  patterns so i am going to replicate it but put my own twist on it... 

The lures are 100m from start of bib to tail end. (Only 5mm larger than the popular Daiwa rpm crank and weigh 15grams roughly with terminal added. 

Come with rattles too. Dives to 10ft-12ft

If interested let me know as i have sooo many colours and patterns available for this lure..

 

I’ll take a couple for sure!

So update on Softys Callop Lures. 

After i had applied the base coat of Yellow i added pearl orange to the sides of the lure....

I then added Pearl Pineapple to the belly to give the yellow a little more pop!

Then i added an colour called Detail Sepia which is an dark brown. I added it to the top of the bait

I have now used an transparent sealer over the top of the bait so i can add the stencil pattern tomorrow. The sealent is just a safe guard when using stencils that it doesn't scratch or damage the paint... 

So tomorrow the pattern is gonig to go onto the lure then from there it will just need eyes and completed. 

I also have done two different Purple colours that i will be inverting the 2 purples on each of the baits with a criss cross pattern. Hard to explain but will show once finished....

Both purple baits will be finished with black backs and black around the eyes.

 

If you think there are other colour combinations you'd like to see be sure to let me know i still have another 15 of these blanks and i also have plenty of colours to choose from

Added the pattern onto some of them this morning. 

Stencils are the best thing ever to add another dimension to lures... added 3 different stencils to 3 different baits... 

Just needs sealant then clear coat Nd eyes and they are ready to smash PBs 😎😎
