I know this question is seven years old and probably everyone knows the answer now, but just for the record; Platinum cure silicone rubber is food safe, tin cured rubber is not. Which brings up another point-- not all pigments are non-toxic, so if you happen to be experimenting with artist's powdered pigments take time to read the MSDS and make sure it's suitable for your use. Even though the pigment should be encapsulated within the rubber.. who wants to have to defend themselves from the lawsuits...

Oh man, that's a shame. She's right for some of it, but so much chemistry is stuff you do every day... If you cook-- you are doing chemistry. (and if you want to read some good explanations, see if you can find a copy of "The Joy Of Cooking" 5th edition-- the chapter called "The foods we heat" was my introduction to chemistry in a lot of ways)
They can't go soggy, because there is no moisture -- no H2o-- in the liquid. You only used oil. Chemistry! :)
