Perch invasion during the nigth
« on: 03/11/18 04:00 UTC »
Just had to test out som of my black make up last nigth.
Seems like the black stuff girls use is the boldest and easiest to work with.
I have some cheap mica called "DARK Black" witch is downrigth ridicouless.

Thanks guys.
Yes Billy they are dipped in clear but what you see on the picture is just water.
I harden them in water and lay them out later to harden some more.
Come to think of it i have lures lying allower the place that i should have been cleared away  :D
That is boooring so maybe to morrow...

We use mica dust as "paint" and then dip them in clear plastisol.
The base colour on thees are made up of mica dust in the plastisol with some white to make them opaqe.
Then it just you imaginaton that stops you.
The clear dip at the end keeps the mica in place.
If you feel you go wrong, just poke out the eyes and resuse the lure for black baits
Got alot of those "ready for black" lying in an box :D

Your outcome certainly is a Fish Get er 

Had considered trying the Mica Dust at one time but
understood there was a control factor
regarding a clean up mess it made ?

Billy....This is regular pearl and hi lite powder.  There's no mess at all really if you brush the powder on your baits using a small soft artist's brush....like you'd see in a grade-school paint set with 8 colors. You can make templates and do all sorts of things with the powder. You don't have to dip the brush into the powder very far...just get a small amount on the tip of the bristles and brush it on.

Once you get the hang of how the powder handles with a brush you can start looking outside of the pearl and hi lite powders sold on the plastics sites and find all sorts of color changing/shifting pearls and unique colors that'll warp your sense of vision. Wild, crazy stuff out there. I just ordered three more color shifting colors of pigment.

But really, brushing the hi lite and pearl pigments on the surface of a bait is just another extension of its intended use and if you don't go crazy with the brush its actually a cleaner process than mixing plastics.

Here's an example of a bait done with the color shifting pearl pigments having been brushed on and then sealed with the clear coat. There are two colors on this one; one on the back and one on the belly. The one on the belly side of this bait goes on like a super fine red glitter and shows zero green.....until its shifted in the light, but you can see the green starting to pop along the bottom edge. Right out of the container it looks like mud, literally.

Jupp what the Captain said.
But Billy, the easiest way to test it out is to "borrow" some eye shadow just to see if it is for you.
But the mica is much brigther than eye shadow and i find it easier to work with.
Captain, i am waiting for some sample packs to arrive from the UK, really looking forward to mess around with those.
The only dude thing to do in my opinion is to buy the cheap stuff on ebay...
You get alot cheap but it is not nearly as good as the powder from Ranger and Pearlex.
But one fair warning: This IS adictive!!!
