Scales For Lucky Craft Crack Color?

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone knows how or where to get the scales for doing the lucky craft 'crack' color (or gunmetal). I know that Cullin8's has figured it out. I could use tape and cut out each individual scale and carefully put it on the bait, but that would take forever. I don't want to just slap the generic lure tape on. I am looking for the seperated scale look. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Try spraying the lure with a coat of your gunmetal base color, and then put your scale cloth over it and add a white scale color, and then spots of irridescent accent colors from Wildlife Colors. Their irridescents are transparent, but still show up on lighter backgrounds.

I use a scrapbook diamond/scale shaped hole punch and holographic either transparent pearl crushed pearl or white pearl I use asuper thin mixed clearcoat and only apply to the area to be scaled then I use a small pair of tweezers to apply these small diamonds in the same manner as you see on a LC bait after I am done I clear the bait completely with 2 coats applied 15 minutes apart

you can use any color holgraphic material you want I have done many types not just the silver/pearl colors red orange blue purplechartreuse the possibilities are endless

My wife just informed me the shape is a rhombus and I stole her $12 rhombus holepunch :rolleyes:

Well I gave it a shot. I went through my mom's scrapbooking stuff and could only find gingerbread men and star stamps....so I just cut them out with an exacto knife. I was pretty pleased with the results. I think I just need to work on the spacing a little. Here is a picture.
