ISO Light Gray Silicone/Living Rubber Skirts

Not sure where else to look, but I thought some of you more experienced gents than me might know.  I’m looking for a light gray skirt for jigs/spinners/chatters for tilapia (see below).  I’ve thought about using dye on white, but it makes the strands too sticky.  I can color the end with orange/red and use marker to make the bands, but I can’t seem to find a solid light gray.  Any help is appreciated. 

Most ‘tilapia’ colors IMO don’t look like them at all, so I thought I’d attempt my own.

Have you checked Barlow’s in Richardson to see what they have in colors. They have a large selection of skirt material or anything for lure making.

There is a guy on the Texas Fishing Forum named Donald Harper that talks about them. Not sure he has any in grey, but he fishes in Mexico a bunch and might be a good source. His handle on the Texas Fishing Forum is Donald Harper.
