A discussion on another method of painting popping bugs lead to ArticWolf asking me to post examples of my own methods with some examples. This is a Balsa Wood popper carved by a friend who lives in Pennsylvania and painted by me. Basic colors were brushed on the top and bottom. The rest of the colors were stippled on using tools I made for myself using acrylic craft paint. You just dip the working in into the paint in the cap after shaking the bottle. The tools were made from different diameter needles and brass rods. The Black dashes indicate which needles I use and approximately where I cut off the eye and polish the resulting round end. Some other people, yes there actually are a few other people dabbling with this technique, use the ends of drill bits. Mostly I use hard foam and cork bodies. The technique can be time intensive. But if you have the patience... The next much smaller examples are more practical to fish. I use them to fish for sunfish such as Bluegill. Thanks for looking.
