I wanted to get some brighter colors on some of my jigs and started mixing my own paints using clear powder and Pearl Ex Pigments that I purchased at a local hobby shop. I mixed five colors and started painting with it, finishing with silver crinkle powder paint. I think it looks great so I will be adding more colors today. These are 1/4 oz. football and poison tails.IMG_2729.JPGIMG_2733.JPGIMG_2732.JPGIMG_2731.JPG

I really like what you've done here. Would you be willing to share how you applied the paint to get the effect. Or is that just the effect of the silver krinkle over an initial powder paint dip Thanks.

I heat the head only one time using 3-6 colors by dipping or brushes before dipping into the silver crinkle as my last step. Heads look shiny black before baking in oven and then the colors come through. I just did some 1/4 swimbait heads. IMG_2817.JPG
