I have a lady wanting me to fix her full silicone baby she ordered and it’s not painted well, what kind of paint do I need to use?
I don’t know much about painting silicone but I do know you must use silicone based paints and they are prettyyyy pricy even for trial sizes.
If I’m not mistaken, silicone paints are just oil based paints with a silicone additive… do some general searches and you’ll see what I saw, I’m sure.
Silicone has to be painted with special silicone paints. Amazon has a sample pack of 9 colors of Silc-Pig for $39.95. MacPhersons has a silicone face you can practice on.
Hope this helps! I haven’t tried it yet, but it seems like a much cheaper alternative!
I’ve heard they are very difficult to paint. I would really want to practice on something small before committing, because your skill level probably won’t transfer over right away.
Awesome info!!! Thanks
No problemo!! And it’s actually a great, easy-to-follow tutorial!! All you need now is a silicone kit that’s affordable, haha
Well I’m actually fixing a silicone baby for a lady that bought it from china and its barely painted
Yea, the ones from China are poo quality. Will you post pics of the finished product?
Yes I sure will:)
I was curious about silicones and tried to research it but never had much luck. This tutorial had so much interesting and helpful info! Thank you
Can you paint FuseFX platinum silicone paint like the ones at McPhersons on a silicone baby that’s poured in ecoflex 20?
