I am looking for a good Bone Color recipe. Several mentions in the search but I can't find a recipe. I am using C-Tex paints with Iwata Eclipse. Just started making some spooks and like the bone on factory lures. They get bit! Thanks Guys for all your help with the lure building. About ready to put up some pics. Been at it for 2 months.
Dang what a learning curve!

There was a thread about this not too long ago... I think what was mentioned was white with just a tiny bit of brown and/or yellow ochre...
I think this is the thread...
also, try the hardbait cookbook thread stickied at the top of this page... IIRC there are a coupe of recipes for bone there also.

There are probably at least a dozen recipes offered for bone. Use the search feature

This is true. I just shoot a couple of drops of yeller into some white, stir it, and adjust from there. A little yeller goes a long way.

Amen! And a drop of brown will give you a dirty bone.

Thanks guys for the help. I came up with :
50 drops opaque white
2 drops Trnsp. bright yellow
3 drops opaque brown
2 drops Pearl Gold
Came out real close to what I was looking for.

^This. The way I do it is to put some opaque white in a cup then add sunrise yellow a drop or 2 at a time. I have the bone colored bait Im trying to match in front of me. As I mix the yellow in, I dab a little on the bait with my mixing stick. When I cant see the fresh paint on the bait, I know I'm there.

That's a great way to match color!

Mark you and I should have thought about the paint matching being carpenters. When I bring piece of trim board to the paint store that is the way they match it too, if they don't have the formula.

I guess we carpenters aren't as smart as we think we are. Hahaha
