Painting Rapala Shad Rap Old Crawfish Color

3 posts in this topic

Guys, I have tried a bunch of times . Need help matching that goldesh/yellow body , brownish/red top and the biggest thing is that black scale pattern on its sides . How in the world you get that ? I tried painting that area with the black base coat but the gold changes color with the rest of bait . Its the same scale pattern on its natural shad . Its a old pattern .

Any help would be great , also what tools on books do ya'll use to match up colors ? Where can I get them ?

Thanks,

I've painted that pattern before to get the copper gold color start with yellow then add pearl gold and a small amount of light brown and should be close. I use createx paint. The scale patern is hard to duplicate I normally spray a little orange across the back then use dark brown and it's pretty close. The shad raps I have are more of a dark brown back with dark brown scales.
