Black out lined scales?

7 posts in this topic

How do you guys get your scales to be out lined black? Like as if you have black as your base coat. And still have light colors for your actual scales. THANKS GUYS!!! Here is a pic.

Trip. c,
To get the black scale lines use a black base coat the wrap your lure in netting spray on your top colors then remove the netting. you can get the netting at most fabric stores.

You are correct Black is the Base Coat. Water based paints come in 2 basic types. Transparent and Translucent. Transparent colors show the color underneath it. Translucent do not. So a Translucent color is used on top of the black with the netting that cheesehead mentioned. Cody

On this same subject, has anyone found a particular type of netting that provides a really great scale pattern? The stuff I have now works ok but could certainly be better.

Jed,

On some of your bigger muskie baits you might want to try athletic bags (the bags that hold like 20 footballs for gym class), pinnies (the new alternative to shirts and skins), laundry bags (for the ladies delicates). Each of those items works well and usually be used tons before needing replacement.
