Watermellon Red

9 posts in this topic

What colors do I need to mix to get Watermellon Red? I would like to put Watermellon Red on some of my Crankbaits.

Thanks for the help,

Emmett

Here are some baits I just finished making. Now ready to paint.

Hi Emmet,

You can't mix red, It is a primary color. You can however tint or shade it. If you add blue, you can make it more purplish, adding yellow will make it orange. Adding green will brown it up and white will make it pink.

That being said, I don't know exactly what watermelon red is or what kind of paint you are using. I would suggest starting with the purest red you can find, and experiment a bit until you find the shade you are looking for.

Good luck!

Hmm, if you want something similar to watermelon worm with red flake, I'd start with watermelon base and then flick on some red splatter with a toothbrush.
