Working on an alternative to picric without the pyrotechnics.
hook Maruto 2312 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 light olive
rib - small wire chartreuse (twist)
tail - rabbit dyed neon yellow (1Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
abdomen - dubbing rabbit/squirrel dyed neon yellow
thorax - aftershaft dyed neon yellow
collar - pheasant rump dyed neon yellow
Close (depending on the substrate), but not quite there yet.
Next attempt will dye golden yellow first then neon. In the mean time, I have a lot of neat chartreuse feathers to play with.
