Witnessed last season a man who mixed in large plastic bottles that were painted white and black along with herters diver decoys. Will this work?

Yep it will work. I have just about all my blocks painted white with black heads and tails. Although personally I've never experimented with it. Some of the old timers, including my father used to do this. Remember the saying "the faster the bird flies the dumber it is".

This especially holds true for divers.

Heck, give it a try and report your info back.
