Not at all Buffy.

The orange was made as a transparent using Caney X2 fluorescent orange, 4 drops to 4 ounces of plastic with just a dab of gold hi lite.

The gold color was a 4 ounce batch using an MF yellow, just enough to get a strong but transparent yellow...I think it was 6 drops. Then I added gold hi lite and gold glitter to get the gold I wanted.

I'd start with the drops per ounces of plastic I have stated and simply adjust as you go. Different plastics handle colors differently but this should get you right in the ball park.

You can go a couple directions with that gold. One would be to ,make your yellow fairly strong and then use glitter and hi lite to bring in the gold color. The other would be to use just enough yellow to bounce some light thru the plastic and lard up on gold hi lite. I've done it both ways on that bait Buffy and prefer the directions i gave originally.

Play around with gold a little. You might surprise yourself with what can come from it.

ctom, can the belly and tail be injected the same color, as I like, instead of the back and tail. Just getting ready to purchase several plates and have zero experience with making plastics so I apologize if this seems like a stupid question to you. John
