Custom painting

Recommended Posts

Why not get your own airbrush and try painting yourself? Princess Auto has a brush on sale right now; 55 bucks regularly 90. A small compressor and you're good to go. Now if you're like me; as in having to be 3/4s in the bag, to even draw a stick person; forget it. LOL

Look at the price 6 years ago. LOL

★★★★★ ★★★★★ 4 out of 5 stars.

· 6 years ago  

Like the other post, it is a Beaver B200 model repackaged by Power Fist. Quality is great for the $39.99 sale price. The hose it comes with is not the best, so I recommend upgrading the hose before use. Spray is consistent and works well. Hard to find replacement parts if you break/lose something but PA is amazing for exchanging defects!

What hasn't gone up in price, in the last 6 years; but you're right it is a kick in the backside.

This may sound crazy; but try going to a few auto body shops? You may find someone that would like some airbrush work to practice their skill?

I think we put far too much into the details of the painting of lures. Fish aren't art critics, just hungry hopefully. I think we have all caught fish from our favorite lures that had most if not all the paint peeled off it. I know I have. There is a Husky Jerk I have retired that is basically all white now after all the Pike and hammer handles I have hooked on it from the Ottawa.

THere is a time for detail and a time for simplicity. Depends if you are going for the reaction strike, or trying to tease in that immovable beast in the weeds.

but high definition , photo realistic paints jobs seem to be necessary to catch the fisherman 😉

I used to use a guy I met at Curry's Art Supply. He was a goalie/catchers  mask artist. I have since lost touch with him but try Kijiji and don't just look for lure painters or ask atya local art supply shop for airbrushers.

Well since you guys think it catches fisher people, I can give you a prime example here, about how  just a touch of one color makes a difference.

My buddy was just feet away from me. Both using the same jig. He was killing me on the hook ups. Did I say same jig ? Yes we were, but his had a spot of red on the under lip of the jig.  I was marking just as many fish as he was. I switched up and it was non stop action for both of us. 

This is true, or may the whitefish gods strike me down.

I do believe colour matters but not as much as some do i.e. Live Target. 

I wish I had a steel leader on my Live Target  perch bait the day I was out with Lew on Nip. First cast,hit,yank and it gone. Another true story.
