Leftover Plastic's Turned Black
« on: 01/15/19 18:21 UTC »


I had three different leftover plastic colors and decided to turn it all black and shoot some small 1.75" ES Shads and the ES Beavers. I only took a picture of one of the shads but I think they turned out great for leftovers. I find myself usually trying to make black, brown, or blue's with my leftovers but I think I got lucky and these turned out pretty good. It's a combination of Purple/Purple Flake, Junebug, Plum/Blue Flake and of course some X2 Black colorant.

That's pretty slick with the different colors of glitter. I have that mold and its a keeper.

Yeah Tom for sure it's a keeper. I like this little one so much I've thought about getting a little bigger one for when they want something just a tad larger. It has great swimming action and it's thin so it's not to bulky.

That’s one way to use scraps. And the different flakes make it.
May your days be filled with sun shine and you always have a tight line. AMEN

I do that with my leftovers. Mix them all and melt, and then by looking at which way the color seems to be heading, add drops of that shade to enhance it. Black is always a good color. Yours turned out really well.

We all try to make fancy colors but black ones always work. :)
