I have just gotten started painting and have been learning as I go. I had a question that I thought someone on here could help with.
I'm trying to paint a bone color for a crank bait. I'm not sure what colors I need to mix together. Any suggestions?

Ron, this question has been asked several times here on TU. Do a search and you should find what you're looking for. However, the bone color that I use is Walmart's Almond in a spray can. I catch a lot of fish on it.

Thanks Lincoya! I'll do a search. I appreciate the advice!

My bone is white with either a little yellow or a little grey. I like the yellow bone better. You can add some brown instead, too.
It's a "season to taste" kind of thing.

this mix was posted here so it is not my creation:
2 ozs of plain white: add 5-6 drops of brown-mix good
a few drops of gray-mix
a couple drops of yellow-mix
if too white add more brown
if too bright add gray
more yellow will give buttery tone

Yes I do the same.... white with a few drops of yeller... A decent Bone if you are lazy pick up some folkart at wallyworld in "Ivory". Reduce by atleast 50% and make sure to strain it with nylon. Metalic Champagne is an awesome off white kind of bony color too!
