  1. One of the most important things I learned about color matching is hold the bait in question up in the light and look at the color through it . If you can match that then the color sitting in front of you laying in your hand should be close to spot on.. I know it sounds weird but it works for me.
  2. I use a flat griddle to warm up the block and injecters.
  3. Angling a I has a mold similar to a gyb spider grub . You still have to attach the skirt and grub. I have a few by others but this one is the best I’ve come across.
  4. Wd 40 silicone spray. No not really greasy. just slick but it gone the next day. My work top is kind of a do all. Paper work, bait making, etc. I have not had any problems with using it.
  5. Coated in silicone spray . When I’m done I spray it down. . Top still looks like hell but it’s due for a replacement . It’s just laminate flooring. I have had no problem with cold shocking Pyrex cups . It’s been down for 5 years . I won’t cry when I get time to replace it.
  6. M and f green pumpkin green and m and f Maroon is how I made mine. 4 oz plastic 2 table spoons of salt 35 drops of greenpmpkin green 1 drop of maroon to brown it up If you use the search feature you’ll find where I posted up another recipe along time ago but the above will get you in the park and you can tweak it to your liking as far as the amber I would assume m and f amber would be a good start seeing it’s where gyb get there colors from. I struggled with that shade of green pumpkin for a long time so much so I have the recipe memorized. Above everything else remember this you only have to be close don’t have to be dead on

    If I had to take a guess I would say it’s micro bubbles in the plastisol. If you really don’t wanna spend the money on a degassing. Chamber the best way is to let it sit in the microwave for a couple of minutes after it’s been heated up . You may have to heat it up again. It’s the best way I found to do it.
  8. I am using kbs to clear so I was hoping to use glitter in the createx gloss clear I have then dip. That was the major problem I am having with the airbrush I have.
  9. I have decided to buy a new airbrush as I have found my limits with the cheap one I have. i do a lot of airbrush work on soft plastics . I have for a 3-4 years and my favorite Crankbaits are now no longer made so I have bought 20 in a color that won’t work for me and decided to paint them. What I would like to know is 1-Iwata eclipse is it worth the money? 2- will it shot a clear with .008 glitter in it? Thank you for all the help!

    How long?

    I have dipped a couple of baits in kbs diamond clear. My question is how long do they need to cure to rock hard before I can fish them? Thanks for the help. I live in va on the coast so humidity is usually higher than most.
  12. Lol I’ve got 7 grub molds looking for something like it
  13. This is the inherent beauty in making your own you can make them anyway you want. I have learned over the years of tweaking my stick formula that I change my recipe as to time of year . In the summer months I do... 4 oz ss m n f plastic 1 tablespoon of salt 2 tablespoons of glass media 1 tablespoon of softner yes they are one hit wonders. In the cooler months I use the recipe I first posted. Now if I use all glass media is both recipes I don’t add softener at all I don’t need to and it makes for a much more durable bait . I fish a wacky rig ALOT ! Did I say a lot? weighted jig head or hook only. My favorite is a 4 incher. I can tell I have it right when I pull it through the water and you can feel the ends pulsate. It took me 6 years of trial and error to get where I wanted them but I would take the “Pepsi challenge” any day with GYB ! Crap I’m showing my age! Heck I prefer mine and so do most of my fishing buddies. I guess what I’m trying to say is the first one I posted is a good starting point and you can pretty much take it from there only you know exactly what you’re looking for . I will say one last thing don’t get too hung up on trying to make it exactly like Gary Yamamoto’s i’ve had more success with different formulas than with the original . Tight lines!
  14. I use m and f super soft and add more and some times I add more salt.
