And the lion door knocker is finished
<p>Very cool looking door knocker. </p><p>Pure talc is not available in many places anymore. I'm not sure, but I believe Oogoo made with corn starch would be equally waterproof because the silicone is waterproof. </p>
it resist splashes of water, but don't submerge it because my first attempt dissolved in my fishtank
<p>Okay, that's good to know. Thank you. I saw an Instructable showing how to make a sink/bathtub stopper with Oogoo, so I guess that's where I got the idea that it's waterproof. Maybe it works for something like that because it isn't in the water all the time. </p>
Cool design, and very well done! Will you please share your special recipe for Oogoo using silicon and talc? Is it the clear silicon caulk or something else? And what is the proportion of silicon to talc? I'd like to make some garden decorations using your special waterproof Oogoo. Thank you for sharing your creative work.
I used regular liquid silicone glue. In a 50-50 proportion it works like a dense paint, i still haven't try with more talc, but it should be more like plasticine. But make sure the silicone you use is real silicone, because for a proyect i bought an odorless silicone and it desintegrated in water.
Thanks. I'll try your recipe when I get some silicone. I already have the pure talc. It never would have occured to me to put them together! You're quite creative.
That is pretty awesome!
