Played around with some new mesh and made a Red Ear Sunfish and a Firecraw. Already catching some good ones on the craw \:D/

Man, tough crowd :-k :lol:
Beautiful work!
Thanks Mark! Are you still building lures?
Yeah, but I've slowed way down. The water is high 40's, and most of the local launch ramps are closed because of Covid, so that's kind of taken the wind out of my sails.
That definitely makes it tough. Can’t believe they close the launches down. We’ve been lucky to stay open during this craziness. Come on down to FL anytime Mark!
Thanks for the invite, but my road trip days are all in the past. They have now reopened the ramps, but not for tournaments.

they look great! Are you making stencils yourself or use some for the shells?

Thanks, those were a lot of fun to paint. Got to play around with some colors and a lot of detail. I’m cutting all my stencils out by hand. Just got a new Dremel and some engraving bits, anxious to play around with some plastic sheets.

Couple variations of blueback herring. Most are Ghost and one opaque, some scaled some meshed.

Thanks for the inspiration! First time ever using stencils, not enough contrast, a little too dark, but super fun.

You are welcome, but I can’t see the pic and would like to! Love seeing others people’s work like Bantam and Cal showed. Gotta draw inspiration from somewhere!

Whoops let’s try again. Need to add eyes and clear. In the future need to find some of that glitter ribbon. Loofa did not produce the desired effect.

Looking good man! That effect looks sweet on those sides, almost 3d. Should really pop when clear coat is applied. Nice work =D>

I got my ribbon/mesh off of EBay. Keep in mind the diameter of the lures and how wide the ribbon is to be sure it will work. I searched for several things to find what I needed. Glitter Ribbon, metal mesh, glitter mesh...just have to look around, lots of options available.
