How Do You Make Hard Plastic Lures

Now that I have discovered how an A-Rig is made by x-raying the original how would I make the plastic heads. I suppose I need a mold, but have no idea where to start. Just making a few for my use and would like to make them similar to the real thing.

I don't pour resins or lead, so I just shaped a head out of PVC, split it, hollowed it out enough for the wires, and glued it over them. It holds fine.

if you have a Hobby lobby go buy the alumilite kit they sell use the 40 % coupon

you will first need something to make your mold from i used a 1 1/2 ounce ledgebuster spinnerbait head has plenty of room to encase the connections you will need to make a two piece mold with the material provided in the kit you can research how thats done

once you have that step complete cut out a pour hole in the deepest part of the mold only on one side put a pin in the mold to hold the front swivel in place and pour around the connections with the casting resin provided

remember to heat up your mold for better results if i can be more help let me know
