Your work is par excellance. Truly, a work of art. Now that you have a master mold, can you make the lure in quantity?

Your Humble Admirer,

You are more then welcome axman. We will be watching for a fishing report. The finished bait with rattles sounds like a winner.

2 more quick questions, please. What did you make your mold out of and what type of resin did you cast the plug from? :huh:

I'm guessing Silicone for the mold and and Featherlite for the Lures.

i bought silicone and resine in this shop here in madrid www.feroca.com

the silicon is called silastic 3481 and must be mixed with the catalyst number 81.the mix is dry in 1 day.The resine are called feropur e 55 and feropur pr 55.It has been mixed at 50% and in 10 minutes it?s dry. I think this products are sold in scale model shops.I hope it help you!

A real beautiful lure. Excellent paint job. You do very good work. Did the balsa bait work well?

thanks again! i worked the balsa wood during a day.i had watching a lot of bass photos for face details.Lot of patience!This is my 3 popper, the first and second are in balsa wood, and they are very simples:

my first popper in "fire bass color"

and the second in "carp color"

well, i think that the last is the best.

I have too a crankbait of a very very jointed crab, but this is top secret still jejej
