could anybody help with brands used to paint a silicone mask and sealer?
that would be correct.Often the cheapest way to go is use the same silicon your part is made from and mix with oil based paints. The off-the-shelf painted I have used are nothing but that, but with a huge price tag. For example, I painted the Creature from the Black lagoon masks for the really bad stage musical they did at Universal Hollywood. The masks were made with Dragon Skin, and to paint, I mixed oil based paints into a small batches of Dragon Skin, and thinned with Toluene. WEAR A RESPIRATOR!
Monster makers make a GREAT latex paint. They also have an in depth tutorial on how to use them. I find them to be VERY helpful in questions "after" the purchase.
After that ..... once you have the "base" coat / color, I highlight, shade and add different colors with FX latex inks.
After ALL of that ......... Monster makers also makes a latex sealer in different shades .... I build Perdators so I use ULTRA glossy.
Hope this helps.:cool
