    Hey Brenda,

    you could try the Tim Gore- mixture with simple clear silicone from the hardwarestore, mixed "mega well" with (up to) maybe 500% naphta.

    I use that mixture, coloured with simple cheap oilpaints, to paint everything what cant be painted with acrylics. 
    You should add the oilpaints in very small amounts to your silicone- naptha base, without trying to make the color opaque. 
    I have done many and really hard stresstests without a chance to rub that off. On platinumsilicone also on latex. 

    Here is the Tim Gore lesson, where he mix his paints:

    Edit: Maybe you cant buy naptha like me in germany. I use "Waschbenzin" - (washing- petroleum) which should be the same like  "white-spirit" or lighterfluid. (i think)
