i have recently started carving my own lures/ spearing decoys out of bass wood. i decided to test my painting on an old lure before i tried it on one i carved, (if i screw up on one that i carved, i pretty much wasted the time it took to carve it. which is usually about 2 hours per lure, 5 per decoy (i have to band saw so its all widdled)
i took out an old rattle trap i had where the paint had faded. i decided to make my first attempt at painting a lure. i started with a white primer base coat, then a layer of silver. then i wrapped it in a scrap of a body loofah. and sprayed the stomach white. then i sprayed the top with glossy black. then i sprayed the head with black. then i used white gloss enamel for the eye. then a drop of black gloss enamel ontop. then i sealed it.



i think it looks pretty good for my first time. btw i was using regular spray paint.

i plan on fishing this around crappie spawning/feeding areas. (it immitates a spawning male crappie pretty well), or where the fish are feeding on shiners.

Nice work! They look kind of like a Rattlin Rap! If you ever make any in Fire Tiger put me on the list they work great on River when the Fish stack up by the Dam. Actually Blue minnow would work great also.
