Have any of you foam

Have any of you foam lure makers ever tried putting foil in the molds before pouring the foam?
Thought being, a foiled bait bonded right in with the foam?
Might be an idea worth trying or forgetting about.

Well, Terry, I did think about it at one time.
But, the way I pour a foam bait it would really
be tough to do.
I only pour half of the mold, then place the other
half over the first and clamp. I then rotate the
mold 360 deg. in end over end and side over
side movements. I just can't see the foil hanging
in there. Unless you can cover the entire mold
in foil, which may be possible.

A lil off topic but....
I do remeber that if your casting featherlight or similar urethane plastic in an RTV silicone mold, you can spray the mold halves with primer before casting & the urethane body will come out of the mold pre-primed.
You'll probably still want to clean up the body before painting to remove any residual silicone oils.
I thin the foil idea could work, with enough trial & error, shoot, with enough extra flashing, you might not even need a mold release on the bondo & putty molds you guys been havin success with.
if anyone tries it, keep us posted.
