Cool idea for one-sided hand pour molds
« on: November 17, 2017, 08:32:41 PM »
I bought an aluminum mold about a month ago if a 4" worm with paddle tail. Like any one sided mold, one flat sided lure is to be expected unless the cavity is slightly over filled. What I've done is pour the mold making sure the flat side is even with the mold's surface and then after the lure cools, dipping the front 1.5" of the worm near the tapered tail forming a thicker body. I've been doing that anyway for my minnow shapes with super thin tails where no mold is used. Using soft plastic should give that worm's tail a fantastic shimmy. Can't wait to try it if the weather gets a bit warmer.

Dipping to achieve different affects is a great technique.  Another I've seen is to do that with swimbaits and jerk baits to get a laminated "look."
