I ordered some UV resin, (also have some 5 minute epoxy at home), and I would like to try my hand at making more life like patterns for shrimp and crabs, (or perhaps hoppers), anything with a shell.

Anyone got any links and tips/tricks to pull it off. I've seen a few YouTube videos where guys would cut a straw to use for a shrimp and coat it with resin. Came out looking good though.

Any input is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

any pattern you have tied in the past using epoxy, just substitute with uv resin

The fish care less than we do!

I don't tie "UV Resin patterns", but I use it to build up heads and make flies a lot more durable.
A healthy dose on the head of a deceiver, for example, also allows for much bigger eyes on the fly, which I like.

(Not my video)

Try use EP fibers (or similar) for the body.
And maybe add a red spot of dubbing at the body, and even maybe a small clipped hackle for legs instead of the fibers used in the video...
