These are my latest toys ive done as a test





These are as yet not ready for saltwater as the material i had left is too soft, so i didnt add any other products to them apart from red flake, they are water mellon/red flake, i hopfully will be getting some stronger plastic and then do some more.

Nice.

I'm really interested in self pour.

Please list 'everything' you are using to achieve these results m8.

Also:

Soft is good. Don't follow the old adage of harder for saltwater because ime, softer gives better, way better bites.

I meant:

I heard you can...re-work old plastics m8.

I read it on a US Bass site.

It seems that some common types can be re-melted.

a friend of mine is working with silicone, adding substances like colors, salt, glitter etc. can be done also, and you can use it "cold" at room temperature. He made a two piece mould from plaster/cement...

But SoftPVC seems to been used more often, maybe you all like this page...

cheers

Great Link Doc,
I would never have thought to use a hot glue gun, rather than the more normal microwave.

Mark,
Have you got a link to tiranti uk as when I search for them, all I get is links that don't work.
