Working on my very first mount ever, learning as I go. It was a Lake Michigan caught fish so I had some scale loss, but hopefully I should be able to paint them right in/tip them in. I did a custom cast head of the actual fish and used mass produced fins that I remodeled down to size of actual fishes measured fins. So onto the point of this post I am completely unfamiliar with the paints to use. I know of Lacquer and water base, but also seen bits of other methods mixed in. The fish was a bright pure silver, not a trace of reds so I plan to scale tip by hand. Just looking for info on paint medias and maybe a color list of paints to get. I plan to white it out also but maybe tape the fins (or just certain fins) off so they can keep some transparency. Ill add a photo of a living fish to give a better representation of the looks I am trying to achieve.
