Does anyone know how to paint the Norman color 141 that is so popular. I would prefer the older colored 141 that they used to use about 3+ years ago, now they use more of a black back than a greenish blue. Plus I know they use a certain kind of clearcoat with the green glitter does anyone know where to find and purchase that glitter coat? Thank you very much in advance! :D

For the gel coat find a glitter you want and apply it in you top coat. It works becouse I do it. As for how to paint the lure I would shoot the white or pearl part first then the green then do the greenish blue back. It looks like an easy lure to paint if you have any more questions please feel free to e-mail me.

My geuss is Norman uses Flexcoat because of the marketing use of the word "gelcoat" used in their ads. Interested to hear what other tackle makers think they are using.
