Interesting possibilities

12 posts in this topic

I was trying to find out if I could put glitter scales on a lure using

scale material, spray glue and extra fine glitter. What a surprise

I had.

I took a wooden dowel and put several coats of flat black Krylon.

I let that dry for overnight.

I wrapped the scale netting around the dowel and sprayed it with

Duro all-purpose spray adhesive. I Immediateily removed the

netting and applied the glitter. What a mess!!! I banged the dowel

against the work bench to try and remove excess glitter, but to no

avail. As I started to throw the dowel away I wiped it with a dry rag

and bingo I had the most beautiful chrome scales you could imagine.

What must of taken place was a reaction between the glitter material

and the chemicals in the glue. And all was very dry.

I attached a pic of the dowel and the pic doesn't do justice to the

chrome looking scales. They reflect so much light in the sun you will

have to look away, believe me.

Neat! are the pieces of glitter still on there, or did they leave behind the chrome, or are the glitter pieces melted on the dowl?

Well, under a large magnifying glass it looks like each one of

those tiny dots has 45 to 50 pieces of fine glitter on them.

But, to the naked eye it looks like one solid spot.

Coley, that looks great! You might even try that same idea for eyes. Use the glitter for the backing and then put a black dot in the middle? You could use different colored glitter for the eyes.

The lure is clear coated in the pic.
