  1. As your mold warms the worms will come out shinier and shinier. Pam helps too.
  2. Super glue the worm flat side down to a container. Pour POP over top. Bake mold in oven at 170° for a few hours. Coat with two layers of 50/50 wood glue and water. You now have an open pour mold that will work just fine. Once u get pouring figured out you will have great clone baits.
  3. Looks like a great start i learned over time that using waaaay less colorant will make your baits have a more realistic sheen and pop. Translucent color is way more effective.
  4. 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.
  5. If this works I will switch to it as it is likely better for you than lacquer thinner.
  6. 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.
  8. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Smooth on Mold Star. Great stuff
  12. Lol. I have the exact same routine.
  13. I chop our up into small bits and mix with new plastisol - no stabilizer - no issues so far. A meat grinder sounds handy.
  14. Thanks guys. I actually bought it to try with a purple hilite on the back of a paddletail in Shad colour
