Color recipe for a bluegill tail...

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking something with a small amount of green pumpkin, little chartreuse and blue high light?

 

Looking for others opinions and results.... These are for a bladed jig trailer.

When I pour my Zako-type baits, I use green pumpkin with green and blue flake, and dip the tails in chartreuse dip and dye.

These are just tails,  And I don't really want glitter/flash. Our clear water gills have a turquoise  looking tail and no flash.  That is what I'm trying to get. 

Hard to explain.. I don't want to dip 1000 baits tails. 

Electric turquoise?  Maybe that is what I want... :?

So you want a color like the picture. Going to be tough unless you think outside the box. That is really close to a color called Tiffany. Yes the jewelry company. There is a lot of different ideas on it if you google that word. We made one at work but can’t remember what the color family was. I can look and give you a better idea this week.

Maybe I will need to just do a light dose of green pumpkin and add glitter called Ocean from Do-It.

Mike, what about some  blue with a little watermelon? I made some finesse worms colored like the old blue creme worms from about 30 years ago for a buddy & they looked very close to that. I remember that it was just a few ( seems like it was 3)drops lureworks pthalo blue & either one or two drops lurecraft watermelon to 3 ounces of plastic. It was extremely close to what you're looking for.

I don't make plastics.... I'm having them made and looking for a sure thing recipe. I don't want to keep paying for 500 at a time until I like them.  LOL

Yes, I understand the trial and error... But I don't pour plastics. I'm trying to get this figured out so the guy I have make them for me has a starting point... Not getting much advice here. :pissed: :P
