Hello,

 

Ok,  So I've tried looking all over YOUTUBE and I cant seen to find anything on painting "SEE THROUGH" hardbaits. Does anybody have a link or some step by step instructions on how to do it? I really like see through hardbaits for CLEAR water but I want to paint my own now. I do have a set of Createx transparent paints but not sure how they work just yet. I will attach an image of a crank as in example of what I'm talking about. thank you in advance.

It’s simple.  Instead of starting with a white color basecoat, you just start with your transparent colors and shoot them lightly to get the translucent color scheme you want.
