    Default Painting crankbaits

    I am just getting started and was wondering if you needed any other colors besides the opaque. Not sure if florescent or pearls are necessary.

    I've been checking out a 3d printer and the files that make crank baits. I noticed they also have files that make the stencils used in airbrushing, scales, stripes and other little odds and ends. I watched some you tubes and they were just using the colors of the pla they were made with. They were catching bass, but apparently they work. As to color I think it's a personal preference since we keep changing them until we find what they want. I also noted some where painted to glow, some where made to rattle also.

    I love the Flo colors, orange, pink etc. Be sure and do a white base coat!

    I think I finally have just about everything I need. Going to start repainting a few old crankbaits tomorrow until my blanks arrive.

    I've been interested in painting cranks as well but didn't realize that much went into it. I thought it was slap some paint in whatever pattern you want and call it good

    Ya know there are only 3-4 colors you need to catch fish. All the rest are there to catch fishermen.
    I'll smoke just about anything (in my smoker)
    The fishing is always great. The catching varies.
