I'm going to put an order in to WASCO for some paint ... Polytranspar.
Definitely going to get the Superhide White for base coating.
Any suggestion for other colors? Not painting any one type of fish. Going to be all types and some creative ones

I like the Smith Wildlife Pearl Chrome. It's a transparent very light gray with chrome flake that gives underlying paint a silver metallic sheen resembling a baitfish. It will slightly darken underlying light colors so you can use it for light/dark tonal shading on different areas. It's a flake paint, so you need a .3mm tip or larger airbrush to shoot it.

Definitely buy their reducer to add with whatever transparent colors you buy. I like the gold toner, med/dark bass green, bass belly white, the super hide white, blending brown. I mix blending brown with the gold toner, med bass green and reducer to produce a nice color for a variety of schemes.
The Gold Toner is great for creating an antique look or overspraying to give just the subtle tones of gold into a shad pattern.

I got most of list together for the order but still wondering about yellow and orange.
What Yellows and Oranges of Polytranspar and Wildlife do you suggest or get?
What about reds ... deep red, burgandy, etc.
