I have used the "Mona Lisa" brand for gold and copper leaf. I have also use HVAC silver duct tape all of these have worked. If you check out you tube you will find a guy that has even used the skin off of fish he has caught. Buy they way he is a very good artist! Check out "SolarBaits". Kasilofchrism do you know if the stuff from stampede would work with out heat as wood and plastic lures may not due well with that high of heat?
My method requires heat. Not for the foil but for the adhesive binder.
If you found another suitable glue it might work but I couldn't tell you where to look or what might work.
Here is a video on how someone did this on a resin or wood bait. It is not in english so I have no clue about his adhesive or whether or not it's the same as mine. You would have to buy some material and try it out.http://youtu.be/FeQ5F0SmmJg
When I first started this project I did as much online research as possible then ordered up some materials and set to work testing things.
I know we all hate to waste money on projects that do not work but thats how new innovative techniques get developed. I invested over $85 in this project just to see if I could do it. Now I'm sharing the technique for free.
Other people need to start playing with this stuff and come up with some design ideas of their own.
I am waiting for some pics of other peoples creations.
