Painted polystyrene sub floats

Post by JoeNickel » Wed Oct 14 2020 18:36

Inspired by the recent thread on subfloats, I bought some cheap white poly floats and painted them, the intention being just to break up the outline a bit. It took longer than the job really deserved, but I'm very pleased with the outcome!

A random set of acrylic paints from Wilkos that the missus had. Little tubes.

I've done a further set for a mate, just messing about with different colours.

Pale one is intended for fishing in shallow water, where fish are more likely to be looking up and seeing the float against the surface.

I made these as sunk floats poly eggs painted grey hopefully to make them less obvious against the surface
