    Cultiva Topwater

    I really like the Owner Cultiva bait and this is the last one I have (I believe they don't make them anymore ) , RC-3 tan resin and my hand cut stencils where used . Time is just around the corner , WTD . Thanks for looking

    Baby powder

    Thank you to whoever posted here to use the powder to dust mold before pouring resin in mold . I have had zero bubbles , zero problems with my last topwater lure I'm working on that has very deep cuts for the gills .Complete pours and lure demolds so easy , will extend the life of the mold too .

    A few of the Herring head jigs I've tied up , I like the layered effect and look so nice wet
  7. This was four colors in a package , The Loon torch was not included . The pink has seperrated and the orange is becoming seperrated to , tried shaking didn't seem to help. This stuff sets up really hard and tack free . The colors are would pop a little more if I would have put a clear coat on but it was just an example to show you Think it's a close match ,
  8. It's UV resin , I found some at Hobby Lobby they are in little bottles and different colors , can be found in the bead section mixed in with beading tools . I will take pictures and post on Monday

    Thanks Big Epp ,keep up the good work ! Please note that I did not make the pike swimbait , only painted , I have made some swimbaits that have four joints . This has way to many joints for me Tommy

    Here is a couple Livingston topwaters I painted using the hot glue stencils , really added some depth , I hand cut a stencil for the juvenile pike

    I like the scales you have done with the dremel , folk art like . Dremels are amazing tools . Mostly I have drawn and hand carved my scales with exacto or similar blade , I am going to try a couple different things this weekend and post results
  13. Thanks Big Epp ! I will mess around to see how a scale pattern might be achieved , I think the clear glue can be used to make some cool walleye eyes so I'll make them and post pictures
