Hey all I live in north Austin near 620/183 and I am wanting to try pouring something.

The funky thing is, it's not for fishing, it's a sculpting experiment- I'm not sure plastisol will do what I want. I've been doing a little research and it looks like I'd need to spend $30-70 for a couple pints of plastisol (different flexibility), glitter (maybe), colorant, shipping, and a used microwave oven.

My guess is, if there is anyone near me that pours, they might be willing to heat up a little plastic and pour it in my mold, probably the same amount of plastic as 1-3 standard size worms. Because I know how hobbies are, usually you get in DEEP... and have plenty of materials lying around (I know I have BOXES of fly tying materials I haven't touched in years.)

Anyway, I need to get to building my mold! My sculpt is basically done, I need to do a little smoothing and then pour the mold.
When I gets the cravin to chase fat girls, I call on Bass Bug
