Too much time on my hands!

Post by JewieQueen » Fri Aug 10, 2012 3:55 pm

Hi All,

To make up for not working at the moment due to bubs i decided i needed a new hobby. I broght some lure blanks off ebay and a cheapish airbrush kit, some createx paints and holographic tape and got creative. Here is a few i have knocked up. blanks in picture to.

Have tested them in the spa and they swim great but tjere is no fish in my spa so the next trial is to see if they actually catch fish :lol: Watch this space!

Hi there,

Very nice, and it will be really pleasant when you will start to catch some fish with your own lures.
Well done!

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Thanks for the positive feedback fella's.. i forgot to mention that holographic tape is the hardest part to work with, trying to keep smooth with no airbubbles it drives me berko at times :lol:

Will let you all know when i catch fish on them.

Nomad i will swing some your way if you think it will improve your fishing :rofl:

Will pm you CC

Lenna, try wetting th lure with a weak detergent/water wipe, helps by allowing the sticky to slide a bit and squeeze out the bubbles, as you work them out the sticky will grab on,I use this method to apply stickers, should work for you.

Hey JQ,

Any tips on what brush you got and just how cheap? I've redone some ruined classics and stuff with nail polish, they come up okay but I wouldn't mind having a crack at what you've done.
