  1. Great job Gremlin, those are some sweet plugs....
  2. Great work punch!
  3. Awesome plugs, love that trout....can't wait to hear the swim test report.
  4. Very nice work, no problem getting past any bar with those....
  5. Thank you, still learning but having fun in the process.....which is fraught with peril at every step...lol. Took my first stab at marbling plugs, just took them off the spinner and will post them as soon as I have them wired up. Your plugs look great. Awesome paint schemes, I would be interested on learning how you paint them...you can pm me if you don't want to post in the forum. Thanks....
  6. Just finished a few surfsters and a few medium and small swimmers....Hope they catch soon....
  7. Great job none the less. Is there a link in the site to the design of the pencil and the painting technique? I would like to give it a go myself.
  8. R.R, Hope that you feel better soon....
  9. Way cool paint schemes! Yep, time to get out and put them to work....
  10. Some amazing work guys.....really nice plugs.....
  11. That is incredible work!! amazing......
  12. Thank you to everyone for the advice and help. Ed I tried your batch method of heating a batch in a toaster oven and they came out much better. I guess there is a bit of a learning curve with everything....
  13. Awesome work! Very cool paint schemes....
  14. Thanks for the help Ed. Yeah, i only melted one because i wasn't paying attention to how long I had it heating up....oh well. Just using the toaster oven is a great idea. As far as painting the mouth and eyes, powder paint also? or just acrylic paint and then coat over? Thanks, again, Gaspare
  15. Hey Guys, looking for some help and tips..... Just took my first stab at powder painting unfinished Smiling Bills. Some came out great, but more than I care to admit had a little orange peel action going on it. I am using Pro-Tec Powder paint, and a fluid bed. (actually made three of them...I question my sanity sometimes...but I digress) I am heating the jigs with a heat gun, and melted the lead off one jig ...another lesson learned.... Trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.... Also, for Smiling Bills, do you use red/black power coat for the mouth and eyes respectively? Or do you paint those with createx and then epoxy over that? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
