Think that I finally found a way to place glitter where I want it that works for me.
I picked up some of the clear paint then brushed it on the painted bait.
You can then sprinkle the glitter on or use the brush to move the glitter around. With the dab and paint you can really move the glitter around and add and delete, or place different color of glitter where you want it.
Best of all you can gently wash the glitter off and start over it needed which cannot be done using the D2 or clones.
After it drys placing the d2 did not seem to be any difference than placing d2 on a bait without glitter.

I recently ordered some ultra fine gold glitter from Janns Net Craft. It is not the soft plastic stuff but is for hard baits and jig heads. Planning on mixing it with clear lacquer and painting that on before the etex top coat for perch and carp pattern baits. I like this idea better than gold paint because it adds accent but doesn't over do it..

Try mixing the glitter with Minwas Polyacrylic, and painting that on where you want it.
I think the Polyacrylic is a little thicker than the lacquer, and holds the glitter out a little farther from the painted lure face, so you get more of a 3D effect.

It might be a good idea to test any glitter you intend to spray through an airbrush before you actually put it in the airbrush to spray it.
Some glitters react with solvent-based mediums such as automotive clear and others. The glitters actually melts in the medium.

Duplicolor makes an automotive clearcoat that has a lot of glitter in it. You canget it at any checker advance auto store .I think its an enamal but not sure a pint is like ten bucks it gives a nice gloss finish. It would look good on lures but I dont like the look on cars!

Try this company out,tcp global auto body depot. Go to the kustom shop page ,on the left there is another page of flakes. On this page you will find any type of flake you like. It also has a guide of sizes of flake and what it takes to spray it , includeing air brush. You can get a very small amount without breaking the bank. But if the bank is open check out the color change ones. When applyed over black you can get two differant colors at differant angles. These are dry so you can apply them in any system that is out there. Pretty cool stuff. Hope this stirs up some creative ideas.
