  1. I use Lurecraft saltwater for my Musky baits. Not sure if it floats. Durable. Hard packs bad and is prone to having bubbles at times but overall a good choice.
  2. If this works I will switch to it as it is likely better for you than lacquer thinner.
  3. I use it all the time. Lacquer thinner - found at Home Depot. Works great and does not hurt brush.

    Mold help

    I have done this a lot. I would go for a seam on back and belly of bait. The whiskers may break off when you remove it but that won’t matter as you can always clone your mold with a resin later (which I also have done). If you have not used silicon to make a mold before - send me a message if u have other questions... good luck.
  5. Those look great Mark. How flexible are they? Is there any chance that the sides could squeeze in and push plastic over the top - that would be equally scary.

    Wow. Incredible work
  7. Platinum cure is actually testier and more prone to not curing - plastisol, alcohol will inhibit cure as will freshly coated epoxy. However, it is the best silicone and lasts longest. MoldStar30 is what I use - wooden masters lightly sprayed with krylon crystal clear. Put a thin coating on your bait, then wait 10-15 minutes and pour a thin high stream into the corner of the mold box - this helps minimize bubbles. Silicon molds typically need a couple pours of plastisol each session before they start to come out shiny and dent free. Just remedy the first pours and mix in with new plastisol. Moldmax30 will work too if you are using plastisol baits to make your mold.
  8. Smooth on Mold Star. Great stuff
  9. Lol. I have the exact same routine.
  10. I chop our up into small bits and mix with new plastisol - no stabilizer - no issues so far. A meat grinder sounds handy.
  11. Thanks guys. I actually bought it to try with a purple hilite on the back of a paddletail in Shad colour
  12. Anyone use this colour?? is it clear or opaque? thanks

    Hard Tail

    That is an incredible idea!!! the Japanese guy's tail looks like it is crazy glued on It also appears as though the light rigid tail kicks better at slow speeds. This is really cool
  14. Good advice here. I will add/and repeat in some cases: - set a realistic production/profit goal if its part time and you have a family. In some cases, making less product actually can increase your profit/sales - find your niche / try to bring something new or better to the market in your area - do a few things really well - don't spread yourself too thinly (I made this mistake at first) - small batch custom stuff should be better imo not cheaper so price your baits accordingly - make sure you have your stuff dialed in before going to market. Your reputation is worth more than a few bucks
