Is it possible to dye silicone?

Antipova Antipova
Curve
Related to: 
So... I mostly know the answer to this before I even ask it, because silicone is non-porous. But is there any way to take a pink or purple dildo and make it a tolerable color?

I really like the shape, and design (and I expect I would like the firmness) of the FF Curve. But it only comes in pink and purple. And those colors don't turn me on.

Is there anything I could do to make one of these Curves look blue? Or would i have to make a mold with a Clone-A-Willy Kit and cast my own?

You cannot dye silicone as the color is added to the liquid silicone prior to setting. You can paint over the toys with a silicone paint if you seriously can't stand the color. However, different silicone paints/dyes are meant for specically tin- or platinum-silicone, but not usually both.

You could try putting some type of condom over it?

Silicone can't be dyed because the dye won't take

Honestly - the color is holding you back? If it works well, you'll get use to it - if not, you can say I told you so - but that will be an internal dialog!

Great answer. This is what I was going to say.

Silicone is usually mixed with paint pigment the stuff they shoot into your white paint at the stores to mix it colors. Or oil paints, like Elona said it depends if its tin or platinum made.

I wouldnt recommend painting over the silicone paint though, its very trying and the sealant probably isnt safest for your body. Its basically silicone caulking mixed with oil paint to mix up paint that can be used on silicone though.

You could however remold your toy and cast it up in the color you want. But it would be expensive.

Uh... If the vibe only had a silicone outer coating, you might be able to peel it off & coat it differently somehow, but, yeah... as people said above, if it's pure silicone, I'm thinking no.

This is a good suggestion!

Thanks for trying, guys. Super-safe materials also mean super-non-changeable, sadly. Fun Factory has such nice recipes for blue and turquoise and yellow, I wish they'd use them more often. *Wistful sigh.*

And, right, if I was just starting on my toy collection and thought this was the one for me, I probably wouldn't be held back by color. But by this point I have a pretty good collection, and so it's not like I need the Curve so desperately, so I'll probably just do without unless they come out with a Curve 2.0 in a pretty color.

The purple isn't a real purple, it's more of an indigo or blue-violet. At least, that's what it looks like to me.

The idea pops into my head that you could make a mold of it, then use that to make your own in a color you like, though that would require purchasing silicone and learning the exact process for making toys. And unless you could find out the precise formula that Fun Factory uses, it would probably end up feeling different anyway.

Anything is possible... the real question is can it be done in an easy, cost effective way? No
