How to make silicone bait at home
Melt the silicone
After preparing all the necessary tools, proceed to melting. The main thing is to turn the silicone into a liquid. For this, there are several methods:
- The fastest of them is silicone melting using an open source of fire. Suitable candle, household stove, etc. Of course, so the silicone melts instantly. But the advantages of this process end there. Cons: smoke, smell of burning, silicone darkens and burns.
- The best method of melting is the use of a microwave (warming in it). Such a heat has two options:
- Melting using dishes.
- Melting with a syringe.
Basically melt in the pot, as you need a lot of silicone, then poured. Conveniently made together. One is engaged in pouring silicone on the forms, the other takes out the bait. As an option, you can consider the use of molds in large quantities.
To melt in a syringe, it is stuffed with material and clogged the tip of the syringe to prevent silicone from leaking out at the time of melting.With this method, the silicone does not evaporate inside the microwave or indoors. A syringe made of glass will work well; then it is more convenient to monitor its filling and avoid overheating. In the microwave, the syringe should be placed nose up and close it with a match or other device.
