Pete,

That looks like one killer fly! I like the scaly mylar. So lifelike!

Martin

Pete:
Great variation on the Surf Candy. Now I know what to do with those mylar scale stick ons I brought.

The temperature of the epoxy and the mixing surface will affect clarity and cure times...
A space heater was a bit too close and my glass mixing slab was warm to the touch...
'Resulting in an abrupt cure, bubbles, and deminished clarity...
Colour transmission was less precise and somewhat muddled...
Definitely fishable but not as crisp and defined as it could be...
The Striped Focus Group will have the final approval...or NOT !?

So...the space heater makes my tyeing bunker toasty/warm on this snowy/cold day...
After yesterday's curious exercise in epoxy...
I decided it's time for a Tuffleye acrylic BLS (blue light special)...BRILLIANT!
The clarity is Swarovski and the overall effect IMHO is beyond ACCEPTABLE...

Pete,

The Tuffleye stuff looks good. Gotta try it.

Like a cameleon...surrounding colours are curiously picked up..."internals" display nicely!
There's some trimmed mylar inside this one...opal like, it comes and goes depending on light angles...


I enjoy epoxy!...Tuffleye? I was sceptical at first, but the more I use it, the more I likle it...
The learning curve is not as steep as the initial sticker price (core/finish/light/ac adaptor)...
The concept and application will open the door to some interesting horizons!
For the price of a few Cuban cigars and/or maybe a single malt, it's a great new on-the-edge tool !

Some white/green/dk green DNA...a few strands of subtle green flash...3D Eyez...Tuffleye Finish...

'slightly thinner with red foil eyez...

Phor phinicy phats phish, sometimes smaller is larger...and subdued is brighter (as in smarter)...

Pete,

You keep crankin' them out!
Good looking baitfish patterns, and enough to fill several boxes too.
You seem well prepared for the coming season.

Martin

Thanks Martin...
I like the way this stuff gathers the light and reflects colours...
Here is some holographic braid under the acrylic...
'almost like the fire in an Austarlian opel...
the migratory focus group will have their say in a few months...
'plenty of time to find my hook file to make things sticky sharp again...

Tuffleye FLEX...the "next generation"...
'Slightly thicker consistency than the FINISH...thinner than the CORE...same BlueLight cure...
The biggest difference is the semi-soft gummy bear like final product which seems to be more durable and shatter resistant...
No smell / No mixing / I like it...A LOT!
Here's my first few PhlexPhlyz...'look similar to the others but the crystal body is 100% FLEX and feels like cured silicone cauking...

Interesting stuff that won't shatter on impact with a beach berm or boat parts...
To finish it off I still prefer an alcohol wipe down and a coat of hard-as-nails...
works for me...





My epoxy daze are numbered!
