Soft Plastic Bass Lures: Spinnerbaits: Make your own Muskie Lures: ..

Preparation: The preparation is the hardest and most time consuming and I experienced quite a long trial and error process doing this. Initially I thought it would be as simple as sanding the paint off the existing lures before painting them in your own custom colours, but after a few attempts doing this I realised that the texture which was moulded into the lure like scale patterns and lines was being lost from the sanding which I think can be important in the lures appearance. I figure if we can see the moulding detail with our eyes then the fish can too. This led me to start experimenting with a multitude of different products to try and remove the paint without affecting the moulding details but knowing full well that many chemicals which can soften or strip paint will eat or severely affect the plastic lure. At the end of the day (or more like months) I came accross a few products which worked well but more importantly came to the conclusion that different chemicals affect different lures. With this in mind I only strip paint off the lures which I am confident will not be affected by the chemicals being used. Another method I would like to try is lightly sandblasting the paint off the lures. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a sandblast cabinet at the moment but I think this would be successful and have minimal affect on the plastic or moulding detail.
