When I was guiding, I painted my Rebels, and others, with my own color. Basicly all fish are silver flake underneath. I painted the whole lure this color after scraping off the orginial color.. I used finger nail polish in pearl first, then clear silver flake. (several coats of each after each coat dries.) It dries really fast and will float and it give the lure extra weight when casting that extra long distance when the fish are working the surface. You can normally find these colors at a Dollar Store. Don't forget to re-paint the gill plate and eyes again with a red paint with a tooth-pick.
