I'm always looking for new stencils for patterns for my lures. I got this idea of using string piled on itself for a blotch pattern. I laid down the string on a plastic sheet and looped it on itself until I got the pattern I was looking for then I sprayed it with starch to stiffen it and stick the string together. After it dried I placed it over the lure's side and painted. For the other side I flipped the stencil over so each side was identical. It made a unique pattern on the lure. Next I'm crisscrossing the string across two rows of nails to create a different type of zebra stripe design.
