How to reduce the viscosity of Silicone caulk without weakening adhesion property?
I am looking to screen some patterns with silicone on different surfaces like hardboard, MDF, carboard etc. For that I diluted Silicone caulk with Xylene and added some normal oil paint. I was able to get positive result except that the dilution weakened the adhesion property of the silicone which ultimately failed the whole experiment.
The screened layer was about 1mm thick. The cured layer could easily be removed by gentle rubbing with finger or thumb.
