    I'm working on my first smallmouth replica and it's a bit too gold / brown. My reference is leaning more toward green tones. Any suggestions for misting or scale tipping to make my smallmouth more green? Thanks for helping out a rookie.

    The photo came out a bit darker than it actually is.

    transparent medium green but very lightly sprayed from top fading out as you go down. Careful, very easy to over do it.
