SILICONE SCULPTING & PATCHING PART 1,2 and 3

ZaphodTrenchcoat ZaphodTrenchcoat North West Wales, UK
Hello there
My piece that I need to patch is a tinsil10 cast leg that has a seam on both sides.

In your tutorial you talk about Syco paint because you are using platinum silicone. 

As tin silicone will stick to tin am I correct that can use all of your other teachings, eg feathering out, using naphtha etc? And not need to use a barrier? Whatever is the equivalent to Syco paint in the UK.

I am in the uk, naphtha we use lighter fluid.

Many thanks

    Ah I have just rewatched the section 'sealing the exposed seam line' and Chris says Silpoxy should be used.

    I will need to see if this available in the uk.

    Yeah, that should cover it.

    And lighter fluid will work just fine as long as it's the right formula.  The data sheet for the fluid should show you whats in it.
