I had my wife pick the bait this time. as for the color. I am heading to norther WI for a fishing week. and on that lake, I have always had luck with bright white and blues.
So this one I started with opaque white, then a 2 coats of pearl white. got my bright blue pearl and shot it from the top to make the fade down, wrapped the net cloth over the lure and sprayed a custom mix of fire red pearl and lightning blue pearl for the deep purple. Took some opaque black on an artist sponge for the side speckle, epoxy the lure, then added glitter to the clear that was left, and brushed the belly. Hope you enjoy!
