  1. Well, I got the main color close with Green Pumpkin, Orange and Watermelon but as soon as I put green highlight in it (no mater how little), It brightens and clouds the main color. The more I look at my sample, the more I think they use an ultra fine glitter or a pearl instead of hi-lite.
  2. Thanks yall. I will try it this weekend and report back.
  3. Try as I may I can't get the top color right. Started with LW Carolina Pumpkin and green hi-lite, and it's not dark enough. Added small amount of black, threw the shade off. Ordered LW mint brown, no where close. It looks to be a transparent brown with green hi-lite but on the orange side. All the browns I find have too much red. Any suggestions?
  4. Has anyone used Lusreworks 192 Arkansas Shiner? If so, how close is it to Zooms Arkansas Shiner?
  5. I'm ya huckleberry. Also, how would one achieve the top color? Straight blue highlight?
  6. Thanks guys. I realized how dumb this question was lol. I only had one of the bait I wanted to copy and didn't want to mess it up.
  7. When making a silicone mold of an existing soft plastic lure, is it necessary to add a release agent on the bait before pouring the mold? Or does silicone not stick to plastisol?
  8. Thanks Fern. What size hook will work with the 6"?
  9. Yeah i've seen that one but I was hoping someone on here had poured it, and had an unbiased opinion. It looked good in the video, but he helped design it, of course it's gonna look good lol.
  10. Has anyone poured this mold yet? Really like the look and concept but the tail seems pretty thick. Would like an opinion on the swimming action.
  11. Watermelon "Pumpkin - Pepper" maybe? Looks like Watermelon, Green pumpkin and black flake
  12. There are a ton of threads about KBS and Devcon 2T but nothing about what the main stream manufacturers use (ie: Strike King, Norman, Rapala). Does anyone know or is that a trade secret? I saw a video about Strike Kings process on Youtube and it looked like they spray their clear on.

    Awesome job Mr T. If you don't mind me asking, what paint did you use for the back (green + glitter)?
