I’m sure there’s better but I got this color. 1/2 Cup plastic; 5 drops Carolina pumpkin; 4 drops pumpkin seed; 8 drops fluorescent orange; 1 dash copper flake; 1 pinch black flake; 1 smidgen silver halo flake

It can be adjusted lighter or darker with the fluorescent orange

That’s about as close as I’ve ever seen. I believe the Berkley is a laminate paired with a transparent lookin white/silver.

I like a good new penny color for some fishing. Its a good marginal water clarity color.

I usually use a combination of X2 Amber and X2 Motor Oil and load it up with copper or orange glitter. When I staffed for Culprit I had tons of their New Penny in several different baits for salt water. I have had super good luck with it at times, but I've run out of the factory baits so I use the formula above to make it.
