    I agree. Rubber gloves would definitely help alleviate getting dye on your hands while kneading/mixing. However, I am still not totally convinced that the dye/pigment would take well. And once the gloves come off......???

    I have an idea. Why don't you try it and let us know how it turns out.

    just giving a heads up that I dug out an older Zubber dinosaur-monster creation and gave it a quick dose of flex seal. Will know in a few hours (or day) if it will adhere to the material and bend along with it without peeling off.

    if it sticks to the super greasy zubber, there is no reason why it should not stick to the way less greasy alluminate and then that means it can be painted since you can paint flex seal

    it kind of sticks to it. I did a simple one layer coat and if I bend the zubber animal the flex seal does bend with it, though sometimes it cracks but still sticks with the zubber. If I went a few coats more (or at least two coats) it should work fine.

    It might then be safe to say that if you use this with the WAY less oily alumilite it should stick like gold

    What exactly do you pour into these molds to make stuff? Do you use Alumilite's Amazing Casting Resin?

    they have this at some Michaels stores too, sold as amazing mold putty and there it's only 20.00 (at least it was the last time i bought it) It never goes on sale, so it's always eligible for Michaels 40 or 50% off one regularly priced item coupons.

    Actually I use Castin's easy resin

    Also going to up a short youtube vid to show how flexseal sticks to the zubber

    Thanks for the tip. Never saw it at the Michaels by me, but I can always take another look

    I was going to get this stuff and I've read enough bad reviews online to discourage me. Has anyone used a product called EasyMolds? I watched a YouTube video comparing the two and they said EasyMolds doesn't have the sticking problem that Alumilite's putty does. It does take much longer (24 hours) to cast.
