hay striperman...i used marbling pigment...from mudhole tackle.. base coat your plug white........mix your two part epoxi  i use flex coat   
1- pour from your mix  2 nickle size spots of epoxi on a piece of foil
2- mix one spot with marbling pigment  u dont need much i would say 1/8"dot of pigment and your choice of color
3- mix the other nickle size spot of epoxi with a differant color
4- now with the remaining epoxi which is clear (i like to add  glitter to it).coat your plug
5- onece all coated take a tooth pick dip it into your first color and put a small dot on your plug about 1/8"  and drag the color across the plug all differant directions with the pic
6- do the same with the second color... but in a differant  location on the plug and using a differant pic  rember to spin the plug to keep things even with no sags
7-just keep dragging the two pigments useing the tip of the toothpic   until u like the effect
8-now let the plug dry  the plug must spin until dry...i use a rod dryer motor to spin the plug slowly   
go to YOUTUBE or WWW.MUDHOLE.COM  for video instructions CRB MARBLING good luck :)

most guys do that with a bucket of water and some drops of paint. slightly mix it slowly...then dip plug and remove...

say salty!!  im not sure what the borax  dose..........but when i mixed it in water and then added the different colors of paint.........when  the drop of paint hits the water  they explode in differant directions............then i dip the guitar body in the  paint and water.....submerge it   then when i pull the body up  the paint sticks  to the guitar in differant colors... marbelizing  it ..........ita a pain in the you know what..and plus u have to seal all the neck pockets and pickup cavaitys.......i did it once  but didnt do it ever again.........there is a video on it

I like the blue needle. The black backed spook is gonna slay fish. As will the banana one at first light.  Black and red are good colors up here in the canal. Alot of guys like that color in rubber. SWEET stuff
