Painting spoons & blades

Painting spoons & blades
I bought some brass spoons cheap awhile back and was curious how they would look with the new glitters called Liquid Diamonds that I've been working with.The two main colors that I've been working with are Chameleon Sparkle and Galaxy so far. I've been mixing it with about 90% clear with a little UV blast and the liquid diamonds glitter. These are some of the spoons that I've painted. these spoons weigh 1/20 and 1/16 oz and are 1.25 inches long. I really haven't used spoons much since the 70's and need some input on how I should rig them like split rings front and back with a single or treble hook, dressed or plain, etc. My picture taking isn't the greatest and they look better in person.  The last picture blade has a white base coat and galaxy over it.

Nice! I like that sage chamelion in particular. I suppose youre after rainbows? I bought vmc spinner hooks for similar purpose. Very sharp, light wire and a large eye for split ring. Wonderful hook.

I started using small spoons in deep water for suspended Bluegills this year. Split rings fore and aft, small swivel on the front split ring, and a single hook with an eye large enough for the ring, but a small enough hook that gill's don't have a problem with it. Tipped with Gulp!

If I remember right, I went with the smallest split ring I have for the rear, and a size 14 dry fly hook for the hook on the spoon. The eye is just big enough to fit, right where the ends of the split ring are. I need to invest in some Orvis hooks that have a bigger eye.

Going to try them on trout but also crappies and possibly bass. Tried them earlier with just split rings front and back but couldn't get the wobble I was wanting. I had a single hook tied wooly bugger style. Perhaps the swivel in front will help with that.

All those colors look really good..... but that chameleon looks like a great natural color. Very cool. : Co-Founder

RE: Painting spoons & blades
I got a deal on a sack load of small spoons a few weeks ago. Mine are brass too...and boy does this give me some ideas on what to do with them. If I was smart I would ship 2/3 of the to Jim to paint like a pro and I could ruin the IF you need anymore to play with just holler. I have PLENTY!!!!!
