That is a lot of influence for one drop.  Nice color.  Would make a wicked june bug.

The bait looks a lot more purple in the hand, I didn't have any sunshine and I think the light I used made the baits look a lot more blue.  That said, X2 midnight blue is very strong. I got some on my gloves and a tiny bit got on my stir stick, turned my batch of pearl white, pearl blue.

Nothing wrong with pearl blue. lol  Then too there's nothing wrong with these baits in the picture either. Great job.

Now....try a batch with just a snitch of violet hi lite......

Great job I make a similar worm color with mostly x2 purple and 1 drop of x2 blue I call it Burple it is a color that I have had a lot of success with just one drop influences the color a lot. i add red flake to finnish it off.
Thanks for sharing take care.

That there is what I often call a 'happy accident'.

Unless of course, you really needed the pearl white and was out of plastic.... but Do-It ships fast, so....

Thanks guys, these are some of my very first injection baits, I got the mold during the bogo sale but had to wait before I could order the other stuff I needed. Now that I have the color about how I want it I can start trying different flake and hi-lites. Thanks for all the tips and KEEP POSTING PICS OF YOUR BAITS, I love to see what you guys cooking up.

These are very good looking baits. I need to get me a setup for photos like everyone else has!

Awesome color! Add some blue hilite and you will really have a bass catcher. Or maybe I am the only one that loves that color.  ;D Keep up the great job DF!
