Looking to paint a few lures in a rainbow trout pattern. I use Createx and need to know which green would be best for the back of the lure? Thanks

I use a mossy green mixed with brown, to get a darker brownish green, or greenish brown. No formula, I just do it by eye. The mossy green is an Apple Barrel paint, and I thin it with windex. The brown is a Createx transparent dark brown.

I paint the back black first, then go over it with Autoair transparent dark green.
