Default making custom color plastics

Does anyone have any contact information on anyone who pours custom color plastics.
I have searched Bass Pro, Tackle warehouse etc. for something in particular and it isn't available.
Thanks for any help

My fishing buddy pours plastics - injection molded. Doc is also a member here. If you are looking for a specific color/fleck it's ALWAYS best to send a sample and not rely on verbal descriptions - this would apply to anyone doing a custom color or trying to match a color you particularly like - as so much is "lost in translation". Anyway the other thing to keep in mind, guys that do custom work cannot always exactly match the bait as many are patented. Depending upon the bait and the corporate protection, custom guys can have a specific mold produced - but that can be expensive as it is (in the case of injection molded baits) machined from an alum. block. I've included his web page, so you can take a look at what he has available in baits, colors are not a problem. He can also give you a specific weight on a bait by adding salt (or other material as salt may affect the color of white and translucent colors) which affects the sink rate. He also can add scent should you prefer.

It's been a long time, but I used to get pouring equipment from Lurecraft.
