Foil ???

Hi Bassman

I use heavy duty renyolds wrap and just glue it on, also have used the foil duct tape from Lowes or Home Depot in the past.

that was one of the most comprehensive explanations of foil, to paint, to finish, I have ever read. Very helpful!

Great source Pete. Come to think of it, I've seen prezzy wrapping paper that would skin a lure nicely, from card shops, back in the UK.

Since I joined TU, a trip to the shopping mal has taken on new meaning. I see possible bait applications everywhere.

Candy makers foil works very well and comes in Gold or Silver. We have a cake and candy making supply store locally. A large pack of foil is very reasonable. Comes in differest sizes, I.E. 3" X 4", 4" X 4". I use a glue stick to adhere the foil to the bait. Coat both the bait and one side of the foil, then stick em together. I smooth it out with an exacto handle or something similar and then add the scale pattern with a knurling tool. Look at a ratchet handle in your toolbox. Any questions PM me.

candy foil works nicely. it's thin and malleable, yet strong enough to fit contours without tearing. you can find it at craft stores carrying food making supplies, such as Joanne's or Michael's.

Would Mylar balloons work?

Yes, mylar baloons are as good as anything else. I think it is stronger than the candy wrapping (which I like also) but the color combinations are endless.

Rookie.

We only got Burger King, White Castle, and Micky D... I don't thing paper or cardboard wrappers will cut it. But I've seen some your work since you hired a lure consultant and a lure analyst... a monkey, hummm, any ways, you could probable get paper or cardboard wrappers to work for you these days. Agree with Dean and Fatfingers, you ain't a rookie any more, what are gong to try to change to next???

Bruce, maybe you could do a tutorial on using the slider boxes from White Castle as a stencil :)

I miss those fresh gut bombs here in Florida!

How many hard baits have you seen me post to date??? Maybe, I could mash the cardboard in the first part of a two part epoxie then add the second part and add a through wire setup, then form it into a gluider for musky. Before it sets up, I could wrap two slider logos on the sides. After it is hard enough to use, I'd be curious to see if would actually catch anything. I guess a few thick coats of top coat and I'd have a "SliderGlider" Spike-A-Pike@Copyright 2008

Has anyone ever tried using a bag from snacks like Doritoes or other chips? Turn the bag inside out and it is just like foil, very reflective. Talk about recycling!

I picked up some origami paper at Hobby Lobby last night,haven't tried it yet but should look good.Also I think you could use some of the paper that you put in gift bags to cover gift, I saw some holographic today at the Dollar Tree,it is very thin and should glue good.Don't know if you should use spray adhesive or not,maybe someone here could tell us.....Robert

I've used regular aluminum foil,a coarse metal file, and a small wallpaper roller.I emboss the foil a sheet at a time,cut pieces to fit paticular bait,spray with craft glue(maybe add some color with blade dip on a Q-tip)and coat with Devcon.Mine don't hold a candle to some of the works of art on this site but it's better than throwing out a beatup bait.
