From this topic:
Ok, let’s revive this topic.
With quarantine, I’m oddly needing a baby fix. And I’m also wanting to try painting silicone. I’m only 21 (22 on April 2) so I’m not ready for a baby yet, and there aren’t any in my household. So, painting silicone it is!
Susan Gibbs is hosting a live stream on FaceBook for students throughout the month of April and in June (includes paints, kit, supplies, and a bassinet made by her). However, I’ve been laid off and don’t think I will be able to afford the class - I’m waiting to hear back from a potential employer.
Anyhow, I have read a bit more. It appears that you can use GHSP to add pigment to the clear silicone mixture. For example, you’re given Part A and Part B, both arrive clear. You must mix equal parts A & B when painting the silicone in order for it to stick to the kit. To add color to the mixture, you supposedly can use GHSP, as long as you have the silicone mixture done correctly. However, I’m not sure if you would still need to heat up the silicone to the same temperature… And I’m definitely not risking it melting in the oven. I do have some test pieces so I may just go ahead and try it on one of the limbs I have and update as to how it goes. I still have to grab up a heat gun from the local hardware store (Still open thank goodness)
Thoughts? Goal is to keep updating this post with progress/ findings/etc.
