Layering of silicone when you're making your own pleasure toy - do you think you could manage different softness/hardness? :)

Just wondering, because I found out that one can mix cornstarch with 100% silicone caulk, and that depending on how much cornstarch you add you can make it softer or harder... (Aka you could make a firmer core with a softer cover I assume... ^^)

Do you think vaseline/petroleum jelly applied on your hands would prevent the layers from sticking to each other? ~smiles shy

I think it would be really hard to do this. D:

Caulk? Really? And you would feel comfortable putting that inside your pussy or ass? Really?
Please don't.

Wouldn't the cornstarch compromise the safety rating and porosity of the silicone? I kinda doubt the silicone caulk is meant for insertion... And why would you not want the layers to stick together?

That's not how commercial silicone toys are made, and that silicone is not the same formulation. Caulk is full of chemicals (which is why it smells like vinegar) and I wouldn't recommend using it. And the cornstarch is going to make it break down and is also going to leak from the toy.

Professional silicone is difficult to work with and not really amenable to DIY.

This sounds... ridiculously unsafe.

Silicone RTV caulk cures by releasing acetic acid fumes. In a thick toy it would take a long time, possibly years, to fully cure, and until then it would be releasing those fumes. Cornstarch supports microorganisms, and who knows what would happen if you mixed the uncured silicone with petroleum jelly.

Don't do it.

If you want to try for working with silicone MAYBE this link would work as they sell things to make Theatre Prosthetics. Maybe. I would still try to find out how body safe it is before buying it.

If I were going to try this (and that is a HUGE if) I wouldn't mix organic compounds with my silicone. I would use the silicone as is, and alternate layers of silicone with layers of plastic or different density rubber with the outside being completely coated with 100% platinum cured body safe silicone.


It's not economical though. Chances are one would waste a lot of materials to make a single "perfect" toy.. and even then it isn't as safe as just paying for a body safe toy here on Eden.


If you must proceed, proceed with caution!
