WYSIWYG- 3″ Proteus80 with abalone inlay: Ogon and Tancho under cherry blossoms (spring motif)


Holiday builds 2023
Every year I try to complete some very special lures for the holidays.  Some of these designs are started mid year and involves a lot of preparation from start to finish.  Once the “prep” work is done, I am able to paint and complete them at my  pace rather than trying to rush the whole process to make a deadline.   With multiple layers and different variations of Nishikigoi (koi), no two of these koi pieces are ever alike.

Nishikigoi and Sakura.
