Two of Jim's Wiggle Warts, one two rattles, one three rattles.
The belly is Createx transparent orange, thinned 50% with 4011 reducer. I sprayed multiple thin coats over the entire bait to give an orange cast to the whole thing.
Then I thinned med. brown transparent 50% with 4011, and sprayed the sides and back. I did additional coats on the back to make it a little darker.
Before I began painting, I put shell markings on with black and brown sharpies.
I did the eyes with a black sharpie, and, using my gloved thumb for a template, I sprayed uncut tran. orange on the bill to give the "claw" look, like the originals.
I put one dip coat of Solarez gloss on one, and two on the other. The additional coat added .3 oz.
Please let me know what you think.
