I was looking for translucency in silicone for a client project. The dyes were coming out opaque at the color density I needed. Marc, at The Compleat Sculptor, suggested colored flock — the stuff on fuzzy Valentine’s candy boxes and Hallmark cards — to let light pass through. I stirred in too much for this ring so it doesn’t let much light through, but it’s a nice subtle depth effect when you hit it.
This ring is made from Dragon Skin silicone.
