I am fairly new when it comes to working with encapsulated
silicone so I decided to watch the Character Makeup- How to Run Silicone
Prosthetic Appliances video with Cory Czekaj, which I highly recommend!
Before watching the video I had always added slacker to my AB
mixture and never had any setting issues. Cory mentions to add
everything (color, flocking, softener) to A to prevent any setting
issues. This was new to me so I decided to try it out! I added slacker
to A, added my color then mixed in B. I'm using Smooth-On's Dragon Skin
FX Pro and unfortunately by mixing this product this way the silicone
does not set. To make sure I didn't do something else that could have
affected the set I did a second test and came up with the same result. I
went back to mixing the way I have been (AB + slacker) and everything
sets fine. Has anyone else had this issue?
