Thanks for the detailed info! That should help me get started with the right materials.

They routinely have 23 to 25 DEEP FRIED items on the menu.  Heart attack in a cardboard serving dish.  Yum, Yum.

Thanks for the info. What green is that on the pencil popper? Is it a fluorescent color?

The Green in the Pencil Popper is Anita's Lemon Lime 11181.  The base coat was White
to which I applied Delta Ceramcoat's Pearl Finish.   The Green went on over that.  I dotted
on the Green to the bottom so some of the Pearl remains to be seen.

The Darker Greens are Delta Seminole Green and mixtures of Seminole Green with White.
Black dots were added last when I decided it needed a little something else.

Beautiful job!

 I am about to try poppers for the first time. What paint did you use for these?

Thanks!

I use water based acrylic craft paints.  These are painted using Delta Ceramcoat and
Anita's All Purpose Acrylic.  Other Craft Paints are also good.  I find the metallic colors
more of a problem to use though.  Their shine is harder on the eyes to paint on and they
seem to be slick in that when you put another paint drop on top of it the paint doesn't
sit like I want it to.

The clear coat on these is 30 minute epoxy.

If you are looking for a quick easy read this fall this book: Never Sniff A Gift Fish is the ticket. It will entertain you throughout the whole book. Some sections are laugh out loud funny. Lots of fly fishing humor. You will be grinning from cover to cover.
