    Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    I just wanted to say thanks G rosa for all the detailed information you gave on the foil stamping process and equipment. I was interested in trying this on powder painted lead lures and the process also works great for casting spoons etc.. Another nice effect of using the silicone rubber pads is that the texture of the pad will transfer to the cured powder paint giving it a hatched finish. I still have a bit learning and of work to do on my heater stage setup and application process, but here are a few of my initial attempts. Thanks a bunch and I hope this information is useful to others.

    Gotcha Plug Colors

    The bodies were 3d printed and made from PETG. A friend of mine has a nice printer at work that he has easy access to. I have tried on my printer at home but could not get good results although it proved useful for the prototypes. I think having an enclosure and better temperature control during printing is critical. I am still testing them out to see how they hold up. Good results so far, but still a bit of work to do.

    Gotcha Plug Colors

    Thanks for the input. If I end up getting some of the purple plastic I will send a couple your way. Very much appreciated.

    Gotcha Plug Colors

    I started making my own Got-cha (gotcha) type lures and wanted to get input from others to see if there are any odd ball colors or modifications that have produced some good results. I do most of my fishing at the NC coast. Interested if non standard colors or dressing the tail hook has given better results. Thanks!
