Still a bit rich...
« on: 06/24/18 10:31 UTC »
lol

I tried one of famous Dave's Ecore shots on this mold this morning using some re-melt chartreuse I make for paddletail tails. I thought it might be transparent enough for the orange to show thru but the thickness of the body proved me wrong. Held up to light you can see the core but its pretty tough to see beyond the tail portion.

I was hoping to get some core samples done for a friend but I think I need to round up some transparent chartreuse colorant even if its a bleeder. This bait is super with the core colors. I have done some clear/glitter bodies with fluorescent cores that are really decent but haven't any for a comparison picture. I may go do this with Party Crasher glitter/clear and do the chartreuse and the orange.

Ok....I used the chartreuse as the core/tail color using the Party Crasher/clear....big difference.

A chartreuse that bleeds may not be ideal, but you might end up with something that you really like.  I have a few baits that are laminates/tails that bleed and that slight bleed into the other color is sometimes really cool on some baits.  I do a green pumpkin with junebug purple tail on some sticks that bleeds slightly into the green pumpkin that looks really neat.  Almost like a gradient effect.
