So tell me what you guys think. I know that you were looking for a way to do Gold well other than plating them and I think there is a decent one right here. Also seeing yall's Disco I decided to try making my own. I call this one Lemon Lime Dazz, LOL!

Then the Gold


And just a couple of Colors with some new Glitter.

I think that gold is as good as one can get other than plating....
That LLD is sharp too....
Nicely done Skip......

I wonder if the gold would look better over a coat of white?

They all look good, but the gold may turn the light better than a plated jig. Looks like it should anyway.

Hey thanks guys, also here is the Lemon Lime Dazz under a UV Light or Black Light, I don't remember which, but same jig as in the other pic.

The best part about this guys is I didn't mix any paint so to speak! I was seeing guys using that Disco Paint which they have in 8 colors. So looking at them I thought I knew how they were making that stuff so I decided to make my own and now will make some more. Little story here, I bought some Metal Flake Glitter from CSI a some years back and bought a pound of each on the good many I have. I was thinking of it to use on bodies of my Sparkle Jigs which sold okay, but not special like I thought they would be. Anyway I have messed with glitter over paint color and all, but never was very excited about it before this and now can see some may be worth making, but think most colors still not possible or not worth it. So I have a lot of Candy and Transparent colors which is what I thought had to be the main part of this. SO I have some Candy Lemon Lime and I added in a good bit (no measurement done) of both Gold Holo and Silver Holo Metal Flake Glitter in it and that is what you see. The Gold is accomplished by using Transparent Gold and Gold Holo Metal Flake Glitter.

On the other 2 I am using some very fine stuff called Prismatic Glitter and it is also Holographic. I am playing around with some so small it looks like powder and these are not cheap! I say 3 because I have the very fine stuff in both Gold and Silver, but the Prismatic is just Silver with a ton of fire.

I don't have enough data to help with the measurements yet, but I am not sure you need them and just have to add glitter until it gets like you want it.

Looks like you are doing a good job, and the color is coming out very good. Think on the test jigs I would do some as is and some with a vinyl top coat to check for chipping. Keep up the good work.
