Thanks! Very helpful!I have been using the duster method with COPIC markers...It works alright if you're just making a few poppers but I wouldn't recommend this method in the long run. The cans of duster get ice cold real fast even with short bursts. Once the can gets chilly the air flow is drastically decreased leaving you waiting for the can to warm back up. You really need a handful of duster cans to cycle through. I would recommend the airbrush kit if you plan on making poppers regularly!
Agreed! The detail is definitely more for the angler than the fish in my opinion. I made one style with tiger stripes and the other to look like a watermelon slice with little seeds on the bottom.Those air brushed popper heads are incredible to look at, but I can't help but wonder how much of that detail is at all necessary when it comes to catching fish.
I want to believe that overall profile/shape and action of a fly are more important than color shades, tones and detail work.Agreed!

Those turned out great! Let me know how that conversation with the wife goes. Going to need to take notes cause I may be having the same one soon.....I tried this. Definitely a learning curve as mentioned above. But, I liked the results and will likely try and continue with this. That is until I can convince my wife that my 12 year old aspiring artist son needs an airbrush set, hahahaha!
