I have been casting some real nice lead lures from the new Shad Bait Lure molds fromDo-It. These are real nice highly detaild fish shaped lures. I think they would make nice plastic or such lures. Any one ever tried casting plastic or resin from these type molds?

Hi Mike,

I've yet to cast resin in aluminum molds, but It's done all the time.

A proper mold release would be important, I suggest "parfilm". I talk with alot of casters & this is the most recommended release for urethane resins.
