pigmenting silicone

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, Im planning on doing 1/2 silicone busts and wanted to reach out for help to the experts on the forum. I can find platinum silicone locally, but no pigments and ordering online is sadly not really an option. Can oil paint or grinded chalk pastels be used to pigment the silicone?

Man, sorry for the late add in. Oils are ok, but watch your ratios. Most chalk pastels contain sulfer which can inhibit.. if you were to use those, switch to an aceto paint system instead of platsil. Basically paint using a caulking ( sil-poxy would be recommended) use a few dictated airbrush that won’t ever be used for a platinum system like psycho paint ever again as the Silpoxy inhibits platsil cure.. the air brush will be infected. We have airbrush set ups for platinum.. and others just for Silpoxy
