Very good job again. The important thing about your work is not what you do because we can see many examples online of what makes gentye. What is important is teaching the way you do everything with great simplicity and detail. Thank you very much for teaching.PakoTranslated with "google translator"
for me these videos are always a place to learn, i started this vid with no idea if it would work. When that metal skull came out of the mold i was a little relieved, but also excited because i had learned a little bit more. So thanks from one student to another
Great job.You make it look easy so difficult, seeing your video seems easy carving skull with all those details.Thank you.
Thanks for the how too video. Ive been wanting to try something like this for a while and this helps out a lot. With the high temp silicone how many jigs with the hot lead can you make before you have to make another cast.
I am using a tin alloy which has a lower melting point than lead at 230 deg c as apposed to 320 deg c; It is hard to know how long it will last, i have heard of people casting over a hundred soldiers from a mold they have made, with lead i think the mold would deteriorate faster. This is the first time i have used this silicone and it is very stiff when set, i think if i was making another mold i would go for a two part rather than cutting it open. I wanted to use tin because i have previously been a little over exposed to lead thanks to dodgy water supply and dropping lead in lakes is becoming a bit of a no no. Hope this helps, cheers
Hi there,Do you sell these?If yes, how much would it coast to send a couple to Australia?I would love to have some in my collection, even if I normaly only collect hard body lures.But these are just too cool.Have a good day.
i gave up selling lures as i wanted to experiment and finally make some of the things that have been kicking round inside my head. The rest of the tin got used up making my wife a skull necklace. If i run out of jig heads i may be fishing with her jewelry. Thanks for the compliment
Ok, No worries Paul.But your wife should hide her jewellery ...;-)Have a good day.
