What makes those Zara Spooks so dang reflective?  I shined my big flashlight on one and it almost blinded me.  It is something in the clearcoat.  I googled 'highly reflective paint' and came up with a company in Australia that sells this holographic paint. 

Does anybody know what is in it?  I would like to add a reflective powder to my clearcoat.  Has anyone tried using  It looks like they have something that would work, but I am too new with paints to even guess what to buy.

I found a some iridesent powder at Michaels Craft Store....not sure if u have them in Ca. I've used it in some hand poured soft plastics. I think it maybe be fine enough to mix in a clear coat to paint on any hardbait such as a "spook" or crankbait. Good luck , and hope u find it.


Mimicking a chrome apperance by spraying it with paint is very costly and difficult to do correctly. There are some interesting effects you can give by spraying different products, but as for a true mirror type shine, chroming is the only way out. Now for the powders(pearls)that you can add to the clear, these are a great way to achieve a shimmer, or a slight color variation from when you look directly at it or if you hold it away and try to look down the side of a lure.

Now there is a process im which you can achieve almost a perfect chrome-like reflection, by spraying or airbrushing. This is by using a product called Mirra-Chrome produced by Alsa-corp. Im by no means trying to market for them, they are just the only suppliers of such product.

Mind you this is a very expensive product, and is difficult to apply properly. But once done it is the only thing to even compare to that kind of reflection.
Throw it in the thick stuff


guys, the chrome spook is a wrap.....its not a paint.  its ultra thin, like the rattle trap finish. 


   That chrome finish is a vaccum deposition coating.
