The new switch rod build is coming along nicely, and I have been focusing on painting the steelhead pattern this week. There are a few pictures below that show the process up to its current stage. There are still a few more colors to add, but the photos below will take you from the primer up to the addition of silver pearl and iridescent gold.
Remaining colors to be added include transparent green, yellow ochre, wicked red, pearlized magenta, and white pearl. It’ll start looking more like a steelhead pattern as we progress into part 2 of the color scheme.
