Does anyplace offer a semi-transparent film containing holographic patterns (swirls, polygons....) that could be applied over foil to achieve a finish similar to lucky craft "aroura black?"

I've been having some luck with water slide decal paper. You just print the image you want onto it and then after allowing the ink to dry, and applying a fixative agent, you just cut it out and place it on your bait. Can't say how it would work on baits with multiple contours as I've only used it on flat sided baits.

The thing about that Lucky prismatic effect is it's on the inside of the bait.

That looks about exactly what im lookin for. Thank you. Everything i could find before was intended for security holograms like on tickets and applied by heat but that looks more like it.

Look into hot stamping. This is the process most big manufacturers use. The process is simple but the equipment is rather exspensive, it uses heat and pressure to adhere the foil to the bait.

I like the looks of the Rainbow Sheen, but it's $11 for a roll of 165'. And a $25 minimum purchase, which then would have me well over 300' of the stuff, and after shipping, be over $30 in the hole. On top of which I would never be able to use all of it.

I found a foil made by a company called Jones Tones. It is called silver lazer drops and it gives a very similar effect.

You could buy the 165' (or the 300 total feet') use what you need and sell it on ebay.com for just enough to make your money back. Thats what I do when I have to much inventory that I won't use.
