That smallimouth is incredible!
Outstanding sea trout Oliver F.
I love those "chrome" browns, nice job. Ken, I would expect nothing less!
Can you tall me how did you make so nice scales? And can you tall stap by step which colore did you us for painting?
really nice trout! Bravo!
RokSAN, theres a paint tutorial of a great lakes brown that is very similar to that fish. For some reason it wasnt put into the tutorial section but if you dig back a couple months you may find it.
I read this post but still do not know with what and how to achieve such a look of scales.
this is the link http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php/topic,100911.0.html
I already try to do on my rainbow trout but not with that good effect.
RokSAN, the tutorial from mvernelson is excellent. I could not explain it any better. The key is to use several layers of paint to get depth in your scales. Use clear coats in between. That brown trout from the tutorial is one of the best I´ve ever seen. So try to follow that tutorial.
Whit what did you paint on scales. What kind of paint? did you use airbrush or just a brush? or pencle?
Thank you For respond! But somekind of movie would be really helpfull. what do you think?
I hope I will star with 2 Grayling soon and try this on bigger scales on grayling.
I use liquid scales in different colors and powders. If you want a movie, buy one of Rick Kranes DVD´s. They are worth the money!!
Excellent! What color you recommend me for grayling and brown trout?
Use whatever is necessary to get the look of your reference, mostly golds and silvers for basecolor and then pearlescent and shimmering powders. Brown and black for shadows. That´s all it takes. Don´t use general paint schemes, always refer to your specific fish.
I was wondering if anyone has any videos on painting speckled trout and rainbow trout with a bristle brush and acrylic paint as I am just starting out at mounting fish and I don't have airbrush gear yet ,the majority of the fish I will be working on will be trout.
