Great work as usual. One question though....how do you get the shimmer on the gill plate? I've tried a few different things and I can never seem to get the "realism" I'm looking for on the cheeks. Just curious.

thank you again everyone. Joe the plumber, I use pearl powders and pearl paints, using different colors. I've started mixing them a little to achieve different colors but mostly just mix them on the surface as I paint

I hope this helps, any other questions let me know.

Braided line, this is a swimbait from Mattlures, awesome bait. I put a lot of time into painting that thing. I hope this is what you're looking for
