food coloring fun

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I REALLY need some food coloring that isn't blue, green red or yellow, I need natural colors because I am developing a biodegradable fishing lure (yes its edible) but I need some other options than these conventional colors, is there a substitute for food coloring?, any help would be much appreciated

Thanks!

Hmmm.

I guess I get why you would want the lure to break down (untold numbers are lost in the water each year) but what about the hook (and the leader and line?)....

 

Anyway back OT... lots of info out there.

PM me when you get ready to market as I am curious what you will come up with.

well, in bass fishing, a lot of times, you only lose the plastic worm, which gets torn from the hook by fish or just from wear from casting it all day, I appreciate the response!

As to marketing, it will probably be sometime late next year, but the best part is that the bait will most likely be completely edible, it might not taste good, but it sure is cool
