Firetiger with polyester powder
« on: 03/30/18 10:41 UTC »
I did order something i thougth was mica dust but it turned out to be plain polyester powder.
I did not read what it said.
Anyhow i had to test it out, it is matt and not shiny but at least it is brigth in colour.
It is brigther than on the picture.
I am trying to recreate some wobblers i bougth from LPO many years ago, Firetiger and Parrot if memory serves me right.

Those do look good, maybe add a little chartruse on the belly? Would make a good bait for walleye.

The fire tiger is sharp looking. Now do some green on a back and the hot pink below and you'll darned near have the parrot. Maybe do a spot of blue right where the eyes are.

Nice stuff Mada! The paddletails are a great bait for dressing up. I have some solid colors of pearl that I need to play with and plan to use the paddletails. That parrot would be a good one to do...thanks for the reminder that its a combination I don't do often enough.

Those look pretty cool MADA. I've never heard of polyester powder.

Thanks
Me neither Lines, it is something they use in makeup.
But i am going to check if my powder paint is working the same way, if memory serves me right it is made up of polyester too.
But that is gloss thougth.
I think i am gonna set of some few minutes ( one minute equals one hour i guess) messing around with the plastic today.
Still hardcore winter here and my atempt at trying to hate the snow away does nothing good so i can just as well go down in the basement and hibernate again.

Funny...Hibernate! Winter is finally starting to let go here. We're going trout fishing in the city park today. Urban trout release program. It's fun, and much, much better than no fishing.
