Colored Caulk with Lipstick Tutorial
In this tutorial Im going to show you how to color your caulk with lipstick. This idea was given by genny328 on LJ. Ok so lets get started.
Step 1: Put your caulk in a bag. Im only making a sample batch so I put mine in a mini baggie. By doing this we are limiting air exposure and not allowing the caulk to cure and get hard. This gives you more working time to add color and pipe it.
oh by the way I just used some cheap-o wet and wild lipstick
Then just mix it together in the bag until its evenly blended. Then its ready to use.
UPDATE: I was worried that the lipstick might affect the curing of the caulk, but nope it was perfect. The lipstick didnt affect it at all and it set up perfect. So feel safe working with this technique it worked out great.
oh and if the lipstick you use has glitter it gives of a shiny sparkly appearance to the caulk. Also I think due to the wax in the lipstick and thats its totally blended, when I touch it, I do get a slight bit of glitter on my hands, but that may be that its not as cured as I thought yet. It could also be that the wax in the lipstick although blended will never cure as the caulk maybe always having a very very slight waxy topcoat? I dont feel any wax but I do see the slight glitter on my hands lol
UPDATE 2: Now that it has had the chance to fully cure, the glitter coming off on my hands is no longer happening. Just dont be impatient like me and let it dry at least 24 hours or more and you’re good to go.
