Here's a new paint pattern I worked up. I had this little perch body laying on the bench when the idea struck me. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't do the lure justice. I think the flash washed the colors out a little.
Anyway, using acrylic paints and wet on wet brush technique, I applied a base coat of pearlized white. Next just a touch of yellow for the chin and belly. Silver for the back. Highlights of light blue for the tail and fins. After letting everything dry, details in the same light blue were applied to the tail and fins. The eye is black paint. Feelers are 30 pound monofilament.
