    the time frame reason with silicone paint has to due with the cure. For about 70 hours after mixed, silicone is still in a state of cure. Since the paint system is silicone based, the paint will become "integral" with your newly cast item if you paint it early. That being said, its not necessary. There are methods to seal in any paintjob you do. If your using psycho paint, just blast it in unpigmented  after you finish paint. if you do see some sort of delamenation ..or paint rub, you can seal the whole thing in diluted Silicone caulking ( GE silicone 1 clear ...which also works as a silicone adhesive) just thin out the caulking with naptha enough to pass through an airbush. Remember ..once you go this route though ..any touch up paint will have to be made from pigmented caulking as platinum silicone wont cure over it ( works the other way around though ) . Here's another fun trick ..if you want to "matte" your paint job after cure ..powder the piece with powdered sugar. it works better and is much cheaper then matting powder.

    Lee  these pieces are fantastic. You are so close to being done i can taste it :)

    Thanks, that's not really a good video with them being unpainted. there is a video of the suit and hand a few pages back which looks better as it is painted.

    Silicone is VERY comfortable and way less restrictive than latex.

    I will do another video of both hands when I get them painted hopefully next week.

    Looks like a great hand. Is there much of a seam to cleanup?

    Its not perfect but I am pretty happy with the seam, the best seam i had was the silicone head, I struggled to find the seam at 1st as I had no flashing lol.

    It's been ages since i last looked in on your build Lee, to be honest i haven't been on the Lair for a long while......you have come a long, long way buddy. the first every silicone Predator suit is going to rock the world. You are paving the way for the rest of the Lair. Love the vids cool stuff to work with.

    I was kinda waiting for the Spock's "Live long and prosper" -handsign in the end.

    But looks absolutely fantastic. I think the creators of the original Predator would feel weird seeing how well one man can replicate their work.

    As I said above......................... a full suit up video when its complete,, I can not make one when it is not finished now can I. :cool:
    Thanks, its not a proper replication, as the suit is MY take on the beast, I was never trying to replicate exactly.

    Good get on it Doug.
