Are there any alternatives for coloring soft bait

Recommended Posts

So i live in denmark and found someone selling plastisol on facebook. They are called high 5 lures. I looked at their website but seems like they only sells the plasisol and already made lure. No dye or anything. Are here some alternatives dyes for semi transparent? (im new to this and waiting for the plastisol to come and i 3d print molds and masters so its ready when the plastic comes.)

I know you can use fine mica powders to color plastic. It’s used in automotive paints. I know they have some powdered dyes, also. Stay away from anything water based as it causes all kind of bubbles plus if you introduce water to 350 Fahrenheit plastic it would produce a lot of steam as it evaporates, then all the bubbles.

All of the artist OIL paints that I have tried work well with the plastisol. They are pigments so don't bleed.  One of the problems

is measuring volume from a OIL paint tube to replicate a new batch of plastic.  The paints are well concentrated and the volumes

can be quite small.  I made a tool from 1/2 x1/8 aluminum stock with a series of holes drilled.  You squeeze a hole full-

wipe it flush and stir it into the plastisol.  Heating the plastisol too just below the jell state helps to clear the hole.
