Was wondering what paint colors to use. To look at a crappie there is a bunch of colors and when you move them in the light they change. Is there a process to follow to layer the colors to make them look life-like?

I tried one this spring using a foil base, white belly, then mixed some pearlized gold with a few drops of black to get a goldish brown color. Topped with some transparent brown to get the right shade and accent the gills. If I do another one I would use more green and black. I took some photos of crappies that I caught this spring to try and duplicate sometime again.
