I have a mate that works in a Denture Workshop who makes false teeth for a living, he asures me that he can mould anything and make it sink suspend or float.

Has anyone here tried playing around with acrylic based products (like the stuff falsies are made out of) for smaller lures. I am planning on getting some Ecogear PX45's and making them a slow sink so I can sink and then work them underneath structure but still have the pusher section in the front for some noise and some suspending Tiemco Stick minnows that will slow sink and then suspend in some of the older colors that they used have whne they were called Trick Trouts.

If anyone has thoughts on these types of materials or has tried them before could you let me know how you went.

I've been working on a new one lately, it's made from pine and it's body is 135mm long. I need to make a new bib for it, the one in the pic bubbled when i heated it to bend it. Still got a bit more work to do but it's going well so far.
