SUBJECT: Question for you crankbait painting guys

Submitted by darryl #15463 from ALABAMA on

I have been making my own spinnerbaits and jigs and skirts and stuff for years, and have always thought about trying my hand at painting crankbaits. I'm mainly a shallow water grass kind of fisherman, but I do like to fish a crankbait from time to time. I really didn't wanna invest a whole big wad of money to give crankbait painting a try, so I guess my question is what advice would you offer? What kind of paints should I start off with? I have a Paashe airbrush and compressor already, so that part is done. Thank you guys in advance for any tips you'd care to toss my way.

    I would go to a Hobby Lobby and buy Createx paints. You will need to put a primer white down first, mask tape the bill and loops for rings. Thin with water to a consistency of milk. Set pressure around 35lbs psi. For scale patterns go to the fabric store or in WalMart and buy some small scale mesh. You can buy unfinished cranks from Janns Netcraft, Barlows,Predator Bass Baits, bustinbassbaits, etc. Is your Paasche a VL-3?
