How To Make Plastics

Recommended Posts

I want to melt my big collection of discarded plastics. Is there anyone who has a home manufacturing process? Not looking for a major manufacuring process, but maybe a backwoods process.

The easiest thing for you to do is look at basstackle.com or bearsbaits.com and figure out what molds you want, then pick through your plastics and pull out anything powerbait (seriously you will get a headache if you try and melt it) tear all your plastics into little chunks, throw it in a pyrex measuring cup, and slowly heat it up in a microwave, start with 1 minute increments and pull it out and stir after every beep. once ALL the plasric gets to the consistency fo syrup it is ready to pour or inject. There is a ton of info on the this site and others about making your own plastics, you could even go cheaper and make your own molds from baits you like or by cheaper silicone one sided molds from Lurecraft.com, I have aluminum, silicone and have a ton I have made myself with durhams watter putty, they all catch fish!

Remember when you combine a bunch of colors you will wind up with brown.

I mostly have Zoom Lizards in watermelonseed colors. I was thinking of making a Horney Toad mold to turn them into frogs. The frogs are soo expensive, id like to try and mold some of my own. I was thinking of a plaster mold of one of the frogs, an then using that to pour into. Just want to experiment.
