Re: Silicone Paint? 2nd times a charm.

If you are using the Smooth-On product, they also make a paint for silicone called Psycho Paint. I believe it is a silicone based product that can be airbrushed or brushed onto the cured silicone surface. I have also used fairly successfully thinned silicone adhesive with pigment added to it for color. Just go down to your local hardware store and get some high quality silicone adhesive (clear) like Dow or GE and add VM&P Naphtha to that as a thinner until you get a workable consistency. Add pigment for color and apply to the silicone surface. You might also prewash the surface of your piece with the naphtha for better adhesion. Good luck!
