Learned something I wanted to share. I just posted a picture of a Delta Shiner pattern paint job I did for a friend. Previously I struggled achieving a nice silver side for a baitfish. I used Createx Pearl Silver. When I painted this over white it never really went to silver but I learned from other members that it was much more effective if painted over a black base color. Well that worked but then I ran across Createx Wicked Aluminum and decided to give that a try. Tested everything on a wood dowel first painted the dowel white all the way around and then did black on one side of dowel fading to all white. Then I painted a pearl silver band all the way around for a test and a wicked aluminum all the way around for a test. The wicked aluminum was much more effective in achieving the silvery color like the sides of some baitfish. Got a good silver color over both the white and black test areas. It worked out great on the Delta Shiner pattern I painted and is easier to do.
