Airbrushing
« on: December 04, 2013, 04:56:05 PM »
Hey everyone, just stopping in to say hey and that I airbrush fishing lures as a hobby/side business. I've been airbrushing for about 3 yrs now, and really enjoy it. Here's some examples of baits I've done...

I hate liberals. Liberalism is a disease that causes severe brain damage after it tries to suck knowledge and history out of yours.

Those are beautiful! Do you make the blanks or is there a company that sells unpainted/unhooked blanks?

Those are beautiful. Can you post your price range, or send it to me in PM? I don't need anything now, but will undoubtedly in the future.

The way I price my baits is as follows:
1-3=  $15/each plus $3 shipping
4-9=  $12/each plus $5 shipping
10+= $10/each plus $5 shipping

Repaints are:
1-4= $12/each plus $3 shipping
5+=  $10/each plus $5 shipping

The new baits are rigged out with stainless split rings and VMC black nickel trebles.

I'm gonna have to start saving my pennies. I've got some beat up cranks that need dressing up.

Thanks for the post. ::thumbsup::
