Great looking paint jobs Tom! Saw your other work on another post too. Besides [YouNeedAuthorization] do you sell them through other means? I live in your area and would love to pick up some lures with your artwork (not sure when though, still recovering from the Musky Expo eek )

Sure, be happy to do some up fer ya sometime......not only on Epay...do that only once in while...I do this it in winter for few months.

Music is loud, snow be flyen, munchies all around me, hounds at me feet...my mind wanders...end results are scarry.

Did not paint anything but stuff for me this year / winter and still have six custom requests to do for couple friends of the lake before fall...no sweat.

Some time we should meet an tell me what ya want an we can get it done.

Simple is best...fun stuff.

I've dabbled with touching up some lure's with highlight colors.

Tom what do you use for this stuff, airbrush setup of sorts? I'd be curious to know the details, I think it would be fun to paint some unique customs up, good winter hobby!

Yup, old air brush...nothing fancy.

Eyes can be found online easy...paint is a mix...but mostly auto paint that thins wth water.

Glitter is a mix in, again nothing fancy.

All easy to find stuff.....fun to hunt it up or find what YOU would like to use...everyone has different techniques and styles...like when fishen or loken for women...time is a good teacher.

smile

Clear coat is nothing fancy either...any big home store has it.

Lil tricks make things go easy once you get the touch going but you will see what needs doing an not to do if you just in and just do it.

Nothing hard about it...if you keep it fun.

Nice try Sir. Kellet, but none of them are mine....most sold to guys in UK.

Pike guys love jerk-baits an tuggers over there.

Rest to east Ontario kats....they like cosmic munchies for rivers an big water.

Of all them posted I only kept one for me...the cool looken nuke perch DD......rest all gone.

One of a kind stuff.

It you were to copy a pattern good luck, but no one cares...you would be just like anyone else dose that [PoorWordUsage]...boring...so what would be the point of that. smile

I have some sweet Vermilion patterns.....doubt you would ever see them...well maybe if you bought me a new cabin.

smile

Go sell some screws.!!!

Tom, I think Shawn was joking. I doubt anyone would try to copy your colors, or even have the time for that matter. Thanks for the pics though, pretty cool.

Tommy,

You do a helluva job. I've done well on the ones I got from you...some "interesting" colors to say the least. I think you should paint up a couple and call them "The Long Flat Friends Of Jesus In A Chartreuse Minnowbait"! laughgrin

Sheesh, I need to hit the sack...must be getting ready for another fishing season!

Paul.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
