Silicone paints are applied on a silicone piece after this has been created. There are special silicone paints in a variety of colors. You can also create your own paint with a silicone paint base combined with the silicone pigments of your choice.
Platinum Silicone paints have a natural glossy finish, so if you need to matt down the surface, WS Matting Powder is the way to go.
FuseFX WS-Series Matting Powder is a unique blend of water base matting agents designed to eliminate the shine off of silicone painted surfaces, giving it a flat matt finish with little to no sheen.
When used with M/F-110 Clear, the WS Matting Powder creates a little to no sheen surface.
WS Matting Powder residue washes off clean with a little soap and warm water, dries clean and does not leave a "blue" tint to the surface unlike Cabosil.
Contains NO Amorphous Silca or Cabosil.
Silicone paints are pigments that are dispersed in a special silicone medium and that can be applied with brush or airbrush on a silicone object. For a good and convincing result they are often applied in layers (layering technique). It is advisable to pre-pigment the receiving piece with a base tone (before casting) as to enhance the effect of the applied layers of paint. Often additional effects are achieved by adding fibres (Form-Flock) and fillers.
