Can someone help me out? I want to do a walleye pattern on a large crankbait using the same colors as the attached photo. I use Createx paints, but I'm color blind!!! I would just like to know what colors to buy to match that theme, (ei. gold or green or black...). Thanks.

Brad,I use lacquer so am not familiar with createx (sorry)
But if it will help I will tell you the way I do it in Lacquer.
Keep in mind when I mention the color "Bagley Brown" it is a color I have custom mixed.Almost 90% of my colors I custom mix myself from red/blue/yellow and shade with black or white.
I hate the fact that you are color blind.It must be very trying to say the least.
Brite white pearl all
Yellow sides (not the belly!) high on the shoulder to the belly
Bagley brown light mist to kill the yellow and make it look lightly rusted
cover the yellow
Tamiya dark green (water base) back blend to the sides
Red Orange (i mix start with red and add a little yellow) bottom of side to the belly turn and blend but leave a pearl stripe down mid belly
Black heavy back
With stencil add the black side marks
Remove Stencil and shade face and blend the stripes back to the black back
Red under chin
Hope this helps maybe you can find a rust color in createx to shoot over yellow
BTW Pm dwain (cullin8s) he can give you the code in createx I bet!

Thanks for the replies!!! I now know what colors to try. I'm going to try and repaint a new Manns Magnum Stretch 30+. I'm lucky enough to have a Cabelas in my town with a Bargain Cave. When they have a lot of the same color bait I like, I but them all and repaint them. I'll try to post pictures when I'm done. Thanks again.
