Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Jan 19. 25 Replies

Howdy y'all!I'm having some difficulties with painting Platsil Gel 10, I was recommended as a cheap solution to buy regular oil colors mixed with silicone. To thin it out I used a small bottle of…Continue

Howdy!I'm currently testing some silicone casting, mainly of hands. I found this picture from LAIKA and was wondering if someone knows or has an idea of what they painted/overlayered the hand…Continue

"Doug, just to say I am really liking the d-limonene. Seems to work very well, and now my workroom smells pleasantly of oranges! Thanks."

"I forgot to report that silicone colored with acrylic doesn't stick well to the shellac and is probably the cause of most issues I've had randomly in the past. it is fine with a little oil paint, but works best with just untainted silicone…"

"Oh cool! I think you'll love D-limonene. It's awfully expensive compared to other solvents, but I think it's woth it. I used some spray shellac the other day and the silicone bonded better in some places than others. I think it may…"

"Hi Doug. Thanks for the info.  Glazing silicone is not acetoxy, that's the difference, so it may work differently, although it seemed fine for the hair patches. I got some d-limonen today, so will give it a go too. Thanks for all the tips!"

"Hi Simon, The GE Silicone 1 has no fungicides and it is acetoxy, yes. The Silicone II does have fungicides and does not work for my purposes. I made a mold with Silicone 11 last year and it never cured. Accidentky grabbed the wrong tube. I've…"

"Doug, can I ask a question about the GE silicone caulk you use?  Is it an acetoxy silicone? Presumably it does not contain fungicides, as it advertises itself as 100% silicone. I am just wondering about the other silicones available, and…"

"Hi Doug. Thanks for sharing all your tips. I too have found icing sugar to be really effective. Will look up d-limonene, which I haven't come across. I tend to think we're not using naptha in large quantities so I don't wear a mask.…"

"I just re-read my post and realized it sounded like I'm saying I'd only pre-tint platinum silicone, but I think I lost my train of thought. :)  I pre-tint all silicone casts. It's nearly impossible to paint over clear silicone,…"

"A cheap trick to bond silicone to many different surfaces is to coat the surface that you want silicone to bond to with shellac. You can use most silicones as an adhesive as long as you are not trying to use a platinum silicone to glue a tin…"

"Well, any wire will snap eventually. Floral wire is stronger than aluminum for holding things, and as long as you don't bend it at a sharp angle it will last pretty long - nearly as long as aluminum wire would. Try to bend the fingers in curves…"
