This is one of my favorite flipping colors.  Works in muddy and clean water and the fish just inhale it.
1 cup plastic
1 drop white (lureworks)
10 drops electric blue (lurecraft)
35 drops flippin blue (lureworks)
1/4 teaspoon.015 blue flake

That’s a really awesome blue. It would work well for a black and blue laminate. Killer color and thanks for sharing your formula.

That's a bright blue for sure. I'm with WW for the laminate.

Bassinfool.....have you tried adding some blue hi lite to this? Not much but some. I can see this with violet or purple hi lite too to give it a sort of "oil slick" appearance to it.

I keep my leftovers and use it to make a black with blue hi lite and hillbilly blue swirl baits. That's also a top choice for me. Tom, I've used the hi lite before but just prefer it this way for my uses. Like I mentioned above, I put the blue hi lite in the black which looks really good. I also do a swirl with the blue and watermelon candy that looks really interesting that I've dubbed Tanic Panic.

  Nice ! I make what I call Flipping Blue. It looks like that only no flake. I like it for muddy water and for some reason it does work.
I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

I like the mold also. What mold is that?

That’s a great looking color. I wonder how it would look with silver flake?

The silver looks good too, PT! I've made some in the past, not recently. Honestly, this color works well with a lot of different flake colors. Hell, even used some medium sized green flake and used it in some truck worms that did wonders last summer on deep ledges and humps.
