Thanks. The craws look great too. Oh yeah on the Spaz Stix....I'm just doing fun stuff. I have the respirator but prefer to use Createx and only painting lures here and there keeping it simple and safe. Thanks for the warning.

No problem man,check it out if you get a chance,the paint is some of the best on the market and has amazing results

I would only add a very light overspray of black on the back, thinned so it's almost transparent, and done in really light coats, so you can quit when you hit what you want.

Otherwise, you baits look great as they are!

Found this website that uses the CMYK format (Cyan,Magenta,Yellow and Black). Mixed up a rootbeer color using one of the goldenrod formulas then added a few drops of tangerine. Yeah, I know, wish there was just one rootbeer color we could mix instead of the many out there. http://www.color-chart.org/cmyk-color-chart.php

great post and comprehensive chart!

here is a couple of handy tools for getting a idea for mixing and matching your colors.

First is a app for google chrome you can download for free at the web store for chrome.  its called color pick eyedropper it will pick the color out of a webpage and give you different type values for it.

second is this page here http://trycolors.com/ that lets you mix colors together by percentages to try to match your target.

That trycolors.com is a pretty cool tool. I messed around with it and got a few ideas to try on some colors I never could get exactly how I wanted. I did notice that it doesn't quite match my experience in how some colors overpower another with airbrush paints, but it still helps figure a new direction to try. One shade of brown I want, I never thought about adding blue, but after messing around with this, that's my next step.

In my experience, red changes yellow a lot more than it does with the simulator. Ratios also seem to be a little different with black and yellow.

Thanks for the link!
