  1. I using alumilite amazing casting resin white. 10mL equal parts with a scoop and a half of micro balloons in side A and side B. The problem I am having is my resin curing on the one half of my Mold. I noticed while I am mixing the micro balloons in my part B, the liquid is significantly heavier than the micro balloons. So much that there seems to be 1/8” of liquid in the bottom of my mixing cup that won’t bind with the micro balloons. Once I have it mixed with part a and poured in my mould I always find that the last half that I poured tends to have a soft spot, or on my last pour a pocket of liquid that extends the length of my lure . I cut new vents in my Mold, I mixed my resin longer, I’ve added more micro balloons and I’ve also reduced my micro balloons. I’m out of ideas and it’s getting to me. Please help!
  2. Hey everybody, this is my first post here on TU, and I hope i'm not regurgitating past topics here but... I just cast my first resin glide bait, a 8.5" rainbow trout. My first casting was as a single-piece, but I decided to lay the molds out flat and try it in two pieces. The reason for this was to try and cut weight by hollowing out the front and rear sections when it had cured (which I did), then epoxy everything together. The result is still 7.5 ounces, as pictured. So, my question is: Is it possible to cut this weight of something like this down to, say, 4.5 or 5 ounces? Is there a technique/resin type that can help cut the weight down? I'm using a two-piece silicone mold based upon a hand carved wood trout design I made. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
