From Europe to the US artificial baits are hot baits right now and more and more of them are being developed. At Big Carp Tackle (www.bigcarptackle.com ), the biggest US online carp store, you can find THREE PAGES of artificial baits that include plastic corn, artificial boilies, plastic nuts, foam pop-ups, plastic bugs, plastic bread, etc. Some are in bright colors that are super attractive to carp. Some float, some sink, and some are even scented. There is a whole industry out there that is producing this artificial bait because it works with amazing effectiveness. Artificial baits are best used on a hair rig because they are hard plastic. If you haven't tried these yet, give them a try. They are hot right now.
