Hello all, I know that this post was done four years ago, but I was hoping that you might let me know if the silicone oil worked.
If it did, did you notice if the final casting was safe on skin? I am looking into making a similar project for making silicone masks and other applications, so having this info would ROCK!
Please let me know if you have the time.
Others have mentioned (elsewhere) to try "odorless" mineral spirits... all I can say "NOPE"... it's a white gooey stuff, but definitely not the mineral spirits I remember. I read somewhere it's vegetable based.
What DID WORK (for me)... is charcoal lighter fluid... Kingsford Odorless... works like a charm!
I needed my sealant to remain transparent, this did the trick!
It doesn't have an ingredients list... but I figured it was similar to lighter fluid, which others have stated works... slow burning, minimal residue... only in a charcoal lighter fluid, probably even more safe since you cook over its remains.
Good job figuring that out. I'm spraying silicon over greased bottle with an air brush to make gaskets for my wetsuits. Saves me $30-60 per gasket. I'll prob do an instructable.
use petrol "gasoline" (fuel use in motor cars etc.) only problem is smell of petrol. I used this trick and it work.
