Playing with color shifting pearl
« on: 02/23/18 21:20 UTC »
I’ve been doing some experiments with color shifting automotive pearl powder this week on lead heads. I’ve tried adding it to clear powder paint and dipping with fantastic results. Last night I added some turquoise/silver/red to a jar of 800 clear Hard As Nails fingernail polish. I found that a paper clip works pretty good taking the place of the hook in the shadhead mold. I dipped the head in black powder paint and painted the lower half of the jig with the polish leaving the top black. I ended up putting the nail polish on to thick, but man do these things pop!  I finished it off by dipping in CS Seal Coat.
These are the same 2 jigs. I just turned the paper towel with the lamp stationary.

Very realistic looking with the clear coat. I like it a lot!

I'd say those are going to knock the crap right out of the fish. Very cool!
