just glitter
« on: 03/20/21 14:07 UTC »
New to new goodies. The purple is nothing but clear plastic a super fine purple glitter blend, no coloring agents whatever. Of course the camera's filtering doesn't show what I wanted to show....the glitter when it thins out in the thin areas of the bait lets a bunch of light flow thru the plastic. Actually holding the baits by the tails will allow a mess of light thru and the glitter fires up big time. The tail color is avocado, mixed up 4 ounces of plastic to 6 drops and is about a perfect green chartreuse. What I really like about the color is the transparency without bleeding.



These baits show what I wanted in the Thump-Its....

Baitmolds. 2" I finally broke down and grabbed two of the aluminum molds for the bait when we got stimulated the last time. What a difference from the stone molds.

That new glitter is something else.

I paint my baits with glitter only as well... Jerkbaits, Cranks, Topwater, jigs, spinnerbaits etc... I use a salt & pepper type jar so I can blend several colors on each bait.  One thing I like to do is mix silver with gold glitter and shake away. You can't do this with paint.  ;D
