Christmas experiments with Chinese powder pigments.
It is a technique that the French Softbait Makers showed several years ago, but there are also video of Larry Dalhberg about it.
I simply injected the Pro Shad Firetails mold with scrapped plastisol of old pourings, adding some black drops and I obtained the base for painting experiments with metallic pigments.
I did the drawing up with nail art spongy brushes (but also soft brushes do the work). After that I fixed the powder with a chef torch, but … if you scratch it jumps away.
The solution to coat my “cubist painting” 18 cm length has been ever supplied to me by Frenchs (Breizhbaits), with the mix 50% glue for PVC pipes + 50% MEK. Coating must be quickly drawn down with a soft brush, because MEK tends to quickly evaporate.
I encapsulated also 3D eyes.
Info about colors: metallic pigments stand out really well over a black surface... those fluo are a disaster (let see the tail).
