Here's a photo of some 10" PW shad bodies I did for a Norwegian friend.. These custom paint jobs were patterned after a well known American bait makers paint work, as per the buyers request. This is the first time I've seen some of these techniques used on a soft plastic bait. They are normally reserved for use on some of the finest handmade custom hard baits.
On a side note for you folks that may be interested in getting something done in one of these patterns of something close to it.......these paint jobs take so much time and effort that the cost to do them is much more expensive than my usual painting cost........but if your interested you can email me for a price quote.
