You can actually place different color glitters where you want them very easily.(I've written a tutorial on this,I've got to get the pictures shot and get it posted,but here is a abbreviated version)After you lure is painted the appropriate colors,.....Lets use a Fire Tiger pattern for the example...after the paint has dried,use a pencil and lightly draw in your marking for the black stripes......now with a fine point brush ,go over these marks with some Minwax poly-acrilic...besure to apply a very,very thin coat.Know place a paper towel down,and shake some fine black glitter over the wet acrilic,laet dry a few minutes,and tap the lure to knock loose the loose glitter....let dry completely,and coat with Devcon.
This process really sets of the tiger stripes!!!!..Poly-acrilic is a great medium to mix glitter with(it has a milky color,but drys clear)Pour a little in a dixie cup,pour in the glitter,and paint on with a brush to the desired area.Paint on red glitter over red throat high-lites..etc...Nathan

I think you will like this one. Make a template and use the 3M spray adhesive spray like you would paint. Then sprinkle the glitter over the 3M spray. Take a brush and brush off the extra glitter. Then top with Devcon or Envirotex if you wont it to endure.
