This is one I have been wanting to do fr a while and still need to tweak the stencil a little bit. Also need to fine tune my new brush for the splatter effect never got it dialed in today. This pattern was done using a opaque white belly with white pearl over that, silver pearl back, black pearl splatter.
...That splatter back pattern is on of the toughest.
Tough to get it just right. There are several methods for getting the splattered effect. Here's one: Use un-thinned paint...take the air cap off your airbrush...pull the trigger back several times to load paint on the needle and tip...don't press down when you do this...then point the needle at your target and quickly press and release the trigger. Test the splatter pattern out on a sheet of white paper before trying it on your best work! Control the size and density of the splatter with air pressure and distance from the lure.
