I treated myself / silicone painting kit

I have sold a lot lately, and after helping pay for my new roof I have decided to treat myself. I think I deserve it !


Look at the new neck rings color !
I am in total love with the 3, especially Tia
And yes, they are perfectly proportioned.

It’s been a while since I wanted to try this ! If I like it, I may"invest" in a partial silicone (that’s sooo expensive!)

I have a question regarding thoses silicone at Mac Phearson, don’t people think it’s a scam, when you try to sell like a Rosalie silicone ? We always tell them that they are vinyl kits, it may became confusing in the short term ?

I will ! I am very curious about this new process. I just hope I will be able to keep dust and lint away. That’s what is frightening me the most !

Yes it was and still is a tough time, I may have no money struggle but it’s not easy in other way for us. So when I can, I get something to keep me motivated and happy ! And if mommy is happy, family is happy !

Well, I like it ! As easy as airdry. Mottling is a bit tricky tho, and the colors are not pigmented, I have to adjust.
But I love the feeling of the silicone !

This is really cute!!! Do you use air dry normally? What’s different between silicone paints and air dry paints?

The paint itself is very different as it is silicone. But the process is the same, it cure to the touch kind of fast, you can use sponges to apply, it’s the same process really. Even the dust collecting is the same :laughing:

The only thing I dislike a bit, and it’s may be just the brand of paint, it’s it’s not enough pigmented for my taste.

You can purchase pigments, paints, and part A+B from the company Smooth On (who make ecoflex) btw, if you decide you enjoy it! The test face looks great so far! Excited to see what else you do! Oh also, because I know my friends who use silicone struggle with this, blicks has “classroom” packs of brushes that end up being a lot cheaper than purchasing singular or small packs of brushes since the brushes are hard to clean to some extent!

Thank you for sharing! You did such a good job, I think I need to try this kit. What are you going to do with the face once you finish?

@eversunnynyes I will buy that if I decide to do kits ! That way I will have more control over colors. This trial set have the pigments already mixed with part B. I often buy brushes in dollars stores.

@Naynay thanks ! I tough maybe try to glue it somehow to a ball and make a bear baby. I don’t know how I will make it work. Or I will use the face as a stress ball…:yum:
