Red high temp silicone is the best silicone wise. If you're trying to make jigs bondo is pretty good. You can mix a little fiberglass resin to make it easier to work with. I did a ten oz butterfly jig a few years ago. Poured a few hundred jigs with one and then moved on to aluminum cnc because I wanted to sell. Cost about a dollar per mold using bondo and you can get a lot of pours out of one mold. Its a good idea if you haven't made two piece molds to get on YouTube. Tap plastics and smoothon silicone have some good tutorials.

Thank you, Andy!

What do you think about next method:

Mold made from gypsum. There are no comments but everything clear from video.

I'll try bucktail heads form 1/2 to 2oz and bodies for inline spinners from 1/2 to 1oz

Thanks everybody for response!
