Default Handpainted plugs

Hi Everyone!
Just thought my first post should be one with pictures.
My husband has been teaching me how to build lures and I thought I would give it a try. These are all handpainted, with oil paint...I turned some - but Mike has been turning lures like a mad man so he gave me some to tinker with (he's also the one who did the tail wraps and such) - I'm still learning!. I know they don't look like most other lures... but I thought I would see what you all thought of them... please let me know. Thank you! ~ AmandaRose (Mrs. Smulax) Go Pats!

Somebody likes to paint.......some of us could use some tips from time to time.

I told myself that this year I was painting only solid, primary colors, black, yellow, and white, the big 3, keeping it simple. So far, it's not working, it's too much fun to fool with paint.

I teach her to turn and do bucktails. and she teaches me to hand paint. out of every batch I prime I usualy give her a few to paint. then of course she makes her own to paint.
If you think those plugs are cool you should see some of the art we have in our house. Yea she is a keeper.

Those are great. That's what plugs are missing. A woman's touch.
