Here are 6 of my most asked for custom colors. All of these begin with powder paint.
I'll go from right to left.
In this pic the far right head is a black based paint laced with fine blue glitter. The blue does not show up well in the pic but in the hand this head lookes just like its name...blueberry. It has that deep black with a sheen that is blue. It is a great color and very popular with our local anglers.
Next is Merlot. Look carefully at this one and you can see the fuscia glitter that gives this black based paint some unbelievable depth. Again, the lighting hurts the picture and how beautiful this color is on a jig. It is my second all time color by popularity with anglers.
Blue Infusion is the next color. This is a transparent blue chock full of very fine blue glitter. This is one of the best mid-day, bright with clearer water colors I have.
Electric Grapejuice follows. This color looks exactly like the name suggests. A transparent purple paint is fortified with a bunch of fine fuscia glitter that makes it snap with color. This one ties with the Merlot in second place as an all time favorite.
Number 1 is a sneaky looker. Almost Blue begins as a transparent purple that receives a liberal dose of blue glitter. On the head, as seen here, it really isn't purple and it definitely is not blue. It's just almost blue, so that's what its called and how the name came about. I use more of this color than any other hands down.
And finally on the left is a dandy, Strawberry Chewin Gum. This takes shape after fed and fuscia glitter goes into a transparent hot pink paint. Coupled with a white, chartreuse or orange plastic and it spells "fish on".
The transparent colors are all available at Do-It as the powder paint's candy colors. The black is a no brainer. Most of the glitter I use in the recipes detailed here come from a local source and are super fine in texture. I've tried this super fine stuff in the plastic but it gets"lost" its so fine. In the paint its a whole different story.
If you're into powder painting, what comes from the jar is just part of the big picture. Play around with it and see what you can come up with.
