Holographic Bait Help

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if there is a thread on this topic yet, I looked but didn't see anything. Anyways, I just order my first couple of holographic baits. I'm using house of kolor urethane paints. When Painting a holo do you need to use a transparent paint? Or will any paint do? Such as pearls, Metallics and opaque?

Thanks Guys,

Brad

Brad! 

 

The pearls and metalics may be ok. But I wouldn't use opaques unless it was on the belly or back as they will cover the holographics completely. The pearls and metalics may have enough transparency to them but not sure. If it were me I would stick with transparent completely for holo's.

Just my 2  :twocents:

Thank You! Awesome feedback. The only problem is that house of kolor doesn't make a transparent paint. I will probably half to make them transparent myself. Over reduce them or something. And a lite Coat of primer.

Thank You Again,

Brad

I would do test with a fog coat, to see how those paints look thinly applied.  If you have to thin them to make them "transparent', use their reducer, so you don't lose film strength.

If you clean the baits by dipping them quickly in clean acetone, you won't need a primer, but you have to be quick, so you don't remove the holographic film.

Good luck, and post your results in the Hard Baits Gallery.

I'd check to see if House of Color has a transparent base that can be added to the paint. This would make them transparent without over thinning the paint.

If dipping is too strong and affects the foil, you might try shooting some clean acetone with an air brush onto the baits to clean them instead of dipping, so you can really control how much goes on.  All you're trying to do is freshen the surface so paint will stick.

GillGrabber, I was thinking the same thing. I found away to do it without using the kandys. I use SG100 Intercoat Cleat to make colors transparent and it works really really good!

Thanks Guys!
