Holographic

6 posts in this topic

What product or tape do they put on jigging spoons to give a holographic look. And were can I get some. I make several jigging spoons and I have added the scale pattern to them they are alright but I would like to add holographics and maybe paint over them for eyes and kill spots. Thanks

Thanks Coley: but what I am looking for is a real thin tape- such as WTP scale tape. I need to rape the tape around 1/4 oz. and 1/2 oz. lead spoons. Looking for tape like what is on shimano butterfly jigs.THANKS

I need to rape the tape

:eek:

Sorry, that one was just too good to pass up. :D

If you need something really thin, you might have better luck with some sort of mylar foil and a spray adhesive.

I never had any luck wrapping WTP tape around edges. It's too stiff. I stick it on the spoon and run a razor blade around the edges to neatly trim it off (easy to do!). Stick on the WTP first, then paint over it to shade in the back, belly and add add any details like the eyes, kill spots and gill slits. Finish by dipping the spoon in a tough polyurethane. Dick Nite Lurecoat is ideal - it's formulated specifically for spoons.
