Six inch spro trout repaint

Six inch spro trout repaint

A 6" Spro BBZ-1, originally in sexy shad, that I repainted.
I wiped down the original with denatured alcohol to clean it, then sprayed my Createx and Folk Art colors right over the existing paint scheme, using the shading of the shoulders and the shad spot as a guide to how far down onto the sides I kept my paint scheme.
The side pink is Createx fluorescent pink, and the trout dots are black sharpie.
I brushed on two coats of SC9000 to seal the sharpie, and brushed on one coat of Solarez as a final top coat.
The green in the photo is brighter than the actual bait from the flash.
It is more of an avocado on the shoulders, and transparent light brown over the avocado on the back.
I added some of the brown Createx to my avocado green Apple Barrel, and then oversprayed the back and sides with Folk Art Metallic Peridot, which is a muddy green with a slight gold flake, and makes both the green shoulders and brownish back a little brighter.
I redid the soft plastic tail with sharpies.

    Excellent job Mark. Looks like it just came out of the package.

    Thanks Ben.  I wanted a little darker than their version.  It works better for me here in SoCal.

    Hey Mark, you did good. Looks as good as or better than a factory job.

    Thanks JBlaze.

    I'm taking it out for a swim today, to see if the fish like it, too.
