Project History & More Info:
Casting silicone is very expensive, so over the years I tried to find a cheaper alternative to making LEGO candy molds (https://goo.gl/XcLbep).
I started off trying silicone caulk from the hardware store, but globs of it would take weeks and weeks to finally firm up. That wasn’t acceptable because I needed something that would harden in 24 hours or less.
About 3 years ago I came across an instructable by Mikey77 showing that mixing corn starch into the silicone caulk could be used to make it firm up in under an hour.
I did a number of experiments of my own, and eventually found out that corn starch wasn’t actually needed at all, but that all you needed was to add a little food coloring.
I still like to use corn starch though because it helps prevent the caulk from sticking to my hands as I work with it. The stuff is really hard to get off if it sticks to skin!
