    Oct 25, 2010, 4:42 PM - What's the best silicone on silicone release agent? #1

    I ususally use vaseline, but looking to find something with a thinner finish.

    I read on another forum that any gloss acrylic spray paint will do the job. Anyone tried this?

    I use Epoxy Parfilm. It's in a spray can and is a wax release. Just google it and you'll find a distributor. It also works great as a release for urethane/resin castings too.

    I've used enamel and lacquer spray or brush paints and acrylic paint brushed on. All work just fine as a barrier coat and the first test casting from the mold will take the paint with it. FWIW.
