As the title says, I'd like to start making my own soft plastics and would like to know what a good "starter package" would be ? ex. Type of molds, best type of plastic to use, good colors, mixers. Just lookin for a decent priced little setup for making some baits  ~cf all help is appreciated

Just like any color wheel you can make a color from the basics.  Red and blue make purple kind of things.  So Red Blue Yellow and black would be the first four colors I bought from there you can make recipes and have your own blends.  They sell all the colors for when you want to get knee deep but to get started I recommend just the basics.

As mentioned there are starter kits that will come with a pint of plastic, a couple molds and a couple colors.  Sometimes there is a softener or "Flavor" with them.

I poured for years out west to make extra fishing money ;) Pouring has come a long way since then but I have a few tricks.
