  1. 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.
  2. Smooth on Mold Star. Great stuff
  3. Lol. I have the exact same routine.
  4. I chop our up into small bits and mix with new plastisol - no stabilizer - no issues so far. A meat grinder sounds handy.
  5. Thanks guys. I actually bought it to try with a purple hilite on the back of a paddletail in Shad colour
  6. 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
  8. 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
  9. I used Lureworks Sb Coat paints and then coated with the SB Coat clear.
  10. I have been on an intense three year learning mission as I design 9-16" soft muskie baits. Thanks to all that have helped here along the way. I just posted some photos of my painted baits in the soft plastics gallery. Lately, I have been mesmerized by the clear and exquisite laminated swimbaits shared by Shasta Bass Baits on Facebook. He has inspired me to explore laminated baits and subtle color and flake usage this year. Most of my baits have been opaque - which is more the norm in muskie baits There is so much to learn in this hobby.
