Then the question is! Are you going to blend or use solid colors? Like all one color or a multi blend like pearch color for example. You might want to read up on it or experiment on your own.

Put a white base coat down for both..I use both as well as pearesent sold under the name parma at hobby shops.
you have my email north.. get in touch and i send ya some detailed notes.
also spray a piece of white posterboard with flat white paint. Any brand like rustoleum and then go back with a small detail brush and just paint lines, cross over colors, etc.... go back after it dries and look at the results. This will be somewhat similar to your airbrush results without having to get the airbrush out to do it. If you learning with your air brush, use it for practice.
After the paint dries, get some clear 30 min devcon epoxy and brush over sections of the paint. come back in a few hours and look at the shiney results.... you'll be amazed.... this is a good way to practice before going to your lures.

Or, if you want a transparent lure, sometimes called a "ghost" or "phantom," try not painting a base coat on a clear plastic lure - you can get some extremely insane and professional looking baits - I'll try to post my custom painted lure in the photo gallery soon!
