DavySil™ :: Instructions

To order any DavySil™ please use the 'Contact' form or send an email.
Using DavySil™ Silicone

Testing the silicone straight from the jar will give you an indication of the standard firmness of the DavySil™ silicone.

Scooping a bit out and mixing it with other colours will enable you to create the colour match you are trying to reach e.g. a particular skin tone.

Adding Setting Agent.
As a guide:

  • 1 level teaspoon of DavySil™ paste takes about 4 drops of setting agent
  • 1 level tablespoon is about 8 to 10, for a good size wound, or burn

Mix this together for approximately 20secs and apply to a grease free area of the skin. Putting a little Telesis on the skin before this process will help to anchor the piece. Or, it this can be done later for a solid bond.

Smooth the piece out using a little alcohol texture with a sponge or cloth.
You can colour this with Illustrator if needed.

You have about 3 to 4mins to work.

Remove the silicone piece with Super Solve.

Using DavySil™ Thickener

If you have ordered any of the DavySil™ Thickener this will make the pieces firmer. It is the ideal for boney areas such as forehead, shins etc.
The Thickener is 1 or 2 drops to your mix.

Using DavySil™ Softener

If you have ordered any of the DavySil™ Softener this will make the pieces very soft. It is the ideal for areas such as neck and wrist with a lot of movement.
Softener is a few drops to a ¼ or ½ or 1 to 1 and over of your mix.

You do not need to worry about mixing time when adding the Softener or Thickener. Only the setting agent will cure the DavySil™ silicone.

Top Tips
  • Don’t use latex wedges or gloves. DavySil™ does not like any of these materials.
  • Hot weather will set it faster so add slightly less setting agent.
  • If the DavySil™ is cool you have a little more working time.
