Can't skin red item

Issue Summary:
Saltzpyre character.
I upgraded the special double weapon (Blade and axe) to red level upfront once I completed all uberkrieft lvl of the 2nd DLC.
Then, I did kill more than 1000 enemies with it, so won the special skin lvl 1. I did claim the reward.
In the forgery, crafting, even if i unselect my red weapons, the game do not propose my red weapon (of the same type, blade and axe) as eligible to “apply the illusion” just won.
If I craft another pair of blade and axe, I can apply the special skin on them. So it is only concerning my red version, but I dont want to recraft everything without the garantee the weapon will show up for applying illusion on it.
Clearly a bug ?

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Upgrade standard version of blade and axe to red lvl
  2. try to apply illusion on them

Reproduction Rate (Choose One):
Rare (< 10%)
Unusual (< 25%)
Common (< 50%)
Often (< 75%)
Constant (100%)
