    Aurich: Is that topcoat something that you want to keep a secret? If not, please help a guy out here.

    I felt a sting just by looking at it. Hoping for your past recovery.

    If you buy the WTD brand of 3D eyes you won't have to worry about bleeding and you won't have to worry about using super glue to make them stick. Yes, WTP eyes are made in the U.S.A and cost more but the quality is outstanding and the adhesive they use sticks so well I've had a spinnerbait that had the eyes lasts 2 full years without having a clear coat sealing them in or super glue holding them on.

    Here is a better pic of a slightly different paint job on the same bait. It's a fat free shad by Bomber in Citrus Shad. I'm trying to get that shiny foil look that this bait has on the sides.

    I'll take a shot at this, I can't quite tell if that bait has a pearl white base or if it is clear (unpainted), but then I'd say it has a holographic scale sticker giving it the scale pattern. A little green on the cheek, and black kill dot on the shoulder. That's just my opinion on it, a larger picture would help though.

    Mold making

    I use Hydrocal, a powdered plaster that is WAY less expensive than hard, mold-making silcone. It's 3-5 times harder than plaster of paris, and brushing on two coats of glaze gave me a very glossy surface that releases well. Hydrocal is a bit tricky to mix, but if you search for it on YouTube, there are two EXCELLENT how-to videos on the process. (Follow it to the letter!) Bags of 5 lbs. to 25 lbs. are widely available on amazon.com; my first 5-lb. bag cost me just $15. Hope this helps

    "cloudiness" in plastics from MF

    yes, this will cloud the plastic ,, but I thought if it was water ,, it would do it to all colors ? but maybe not ?

    "cloudiness" in plastics from MF

    You mentioned "sometimes" and "various colors". So does this happen with specific colors? Where do these colors come from? Not all colors even if from a reputable manufacturer are translucent. Are you saying one time a color will be translucent and the next time it wont? There should be nothing storage in a garage can do in my experience to cloud a finished bait. The only time I have had cloudiness is with undercooked plastic. Is that possible in your scenario? If there is moisture it would seem to boil off when heating. What kind of set up are you running? Another have cloudiness is by adding to much heat stabilizer; it will milk up a bait or color. Are you adding heat stabilizer? Are you running salt? Flotation Aid? Any other additives?

    Will kbs help hold on 3d lure eyes? I'm having a tough time trying to get those buggers to stay on or not to bleed the color out of the eyes

    Football Weights

    Brand new to the forum! I'm looking for someone who makes the football weights I can attach to my favorite hooks to make sort of a swinging jig. I'm not interested in paying ridiculous prices for the Mustad Fastach weights. Does anyone here make these or know where I can find an independent company to order a small batch? Have a terrific day folks! GJ
