Made a two piece hand pour silicone mold for a stick bait I made from my youngest daughter's plastic bead collection

Thanks. Wish I had better access to 3D printing and aluminum milling--there's definitely some limitations with clay models, silicone molds, and hand pouring

I've seen a good video of the guys from makelure.com do one from a big gizzard shad.

I think the key step was freezing it for 24H

Very nice job. I sure would love to have some 7" in those to try in Mexico. Guessing you only make the smaller size?

Definitely a process. The 12-18 hrs you wait for the silicone to completely set does give you some time to go fishing

Made some zapata/421 laminate in the 5.1 length. The 7.2 are half way done with the 2 part silicone mold

Good idea, very creative. Be those would make a great carolina rig bait.

Would you be willing to trade some of the 5.1 plastic like the ones in the picture for a few custom painted LC cranks?

Thanks,

I think I've cleared out Hobby Lobby and Michael's in a 10 mile radius of their alumilite silicone kits for making molds.
Just made a different beaver bait and working on a paddle tail version of the globed stick baits.

I got a buddy in mckinney with a 3d printer that could probably print whatever you needed. If you still are in need of one.

Then was worms have some serious potential!!!!

I'd like to see some quality molds produce to fine tuned versions of these.

Thanks, that's the next step.

Getting a custom aluminum mold made of an original prototype isn't cheap.

There is a cheaper middle ground with alumilite Vac 50.

For now, I figure the fish don't mind the imperfections from hand pouring rtv silicone molds.

I did not mean to seem critical of your worms....quite the opposite. I'd like to see you perfect and produce them in mass. I see a ton of potential. If there is a way you could pitch this to a major manufacturer without being ripped off....that would be great.

I appreciate it. There's a few prototypes I'm currently building that look better than what I've done so far.

The next steps will include improving my plastic formula

Gary Yamamoto never patented the senko--you can buy the exact aluminum mold (without the senko or 'GY" stamp on it) very cheap; but it's his plastic formula that has the real magic.

Quick correction, he did patent it, the mold is sold under a license by GYCB for personal use only.

One could sell a stick bait, but they would have to build their own molds from a unique source... The Bic pen GY used, a chopstick I am looking at, etc.

I have a mold I made out of Vac 50. Pain in the [censored], but I got it to work on the second try. Stuff sets quick.

I can't wait to get my hands on some of these! These really look like innovative baits! I'm super stoked!
