Bloodline swimbaits

7 posts in this topic

Alright, I just made my first batch.  Mind you, I am a beginner and my only experience so far is with Do It Essential molds.  Anyway, I'm super happy with the way they pour and work.  I had problems with two of the six eyes on the first run but solved the problem on subsequent batches by pushing the eye in the socket more firmly.  No problems after that.  The lake is frozen, so I can't give you an "action" report yet, but they are my new favorites.  The color changed some on the second and third batches, I think because I added oil.  It might also have been from the reheating.  The bloodlines were easy and the eyes are soft eyes from Spike it.  I'm not sure if I have to dip these or not.

from what I have heard you will not have to dip the eyes because they are bonded together in the mold! and the color change will most likely be from reheating and getting a little too hot.
