I'm always using a 1/32 head for crappies it seems and sometimes I need to up uphill from that weight. Sometimes down as low as 1/64 to 1/80, but very seldom this light. But I do like to carry heads in other weights just in case. The Diner Shiner is getting this niche filled nicely. I hit the bench yesterday pretty early to get the casting done, then spent the rest of the day playing with the goodies I made. Painting was an afternoon affair, the eyes went on at dinner time and the seal coat went on during a movies last night. They were all dried up hard and pretty this morning to pose for a picture.
These are the two smallest sizes the mold makes...1/16 and 1/8 ounce. All got the wires. The purple and pink jigs got a little pop of bright orange at the throat of each jig to dress them up.
These are sprayed using a an airbrush. I used Createx pearlized colors for the purple and chartreuse. The orange and pink are fluorescent colors and the black is black opaque. All are applied over clean, bare lead. While the fluorescent colors are opaque in nature they do come out as almost transparent when applied thin enough. The eyes are Do-It stock 3d eyes in 2.5 and 2mm. The Cs Coatings Seal Coat finished things up and was allowed to dry in a very warm laundry room. The colors don't even begin to pop until this clear coat is applied and dries, then its like everything is electric. Sweep this pile in front of the window with the morning sun lighting things up and every color looks like its plated....absolutely uncanny colors.
Now to go spray some ballheads.
