micron- thanks for asking. i appreiciate it stained and squish- ya i understand i need to do it myself and how it will be relatively easy to do basics. i am not relying on people to paint all the lure i do when orders i do. right now i just have to time to get these pics myself. by the time i open for business i plan on being proficient enough to make my lures. thanks for the advice guys, i like other perspectives especially on things i am not knowledgeable about. this forum has already helped alot.
