Two-Tone Jig Colors

The bottom three jigs are my initial trials/examples. I added a coat of black powder paint to the top of the yellow jig heads in order to produce a two-tone effect.

Will be attempting several with green and yellow chartreuse base coats later this weekend.

Holiday Ties

Tied a few "spider grub"-styled kreature baits and some assorted craft fur minnows.  Mixed a new-to-me powder paint color called "Cotton Candy Confetti".  I think that it's a nice-looking combination of glitters and clear powder paint.

Hope you had a great Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
