    very nice
  4. no, I do that to make swimbait hooks and harnesses- works great- the last rtv i bought was a 1:1 mix and set in an hr- fully cured overnight but ive poured lead/ plastic, resin for plastic lures and it works fine and you still retain detail. ive only made lead mold this way though

  7. ohh yeah, i dont use divided cups either, most lures im pouring are 4+ oz. of mat. i heat 2-3 up at the same time in the microwave, but the color layer go the length or portions of the bait depending on if i tilt the mold ect.... so the way i do it it hard to get a bloodline, or colors side by side. mine are poured in sections lengthwise or segmented along the length of the lure. ive never used an injector or a presto pot so I cant compare my methods to any other.. it was 4 yrs of trial and error for me
  8. use a butter knife of something similar, heat it with a propane torch and use it to flatten,ect.. its works well as a way to attach appendages aswell, this method works well if you keep you "tool" clean with a rag and razor blade to scrape the burnt plastic off- this method is smoky/stinky so ventalate- but you will not be disapointed.. you need to keep the "tool" hot-hot for a smoth fin. pour out a glob of platisol on something and exp. with it first, also when your done with the pour you can use a torch to give your lures a nive shinny wet look, but keep the torch moving 6-8" away and sweep back and forth like your spraypainting/airbrushing something.
