Silicone reactions?

Post by RoseGardenBabies »

I’ve gerd things about silicone reacting badly to certain things like you shouldn’t let your silicone and vinyl babies touch. I’m in love with thoes natural rubber pacifiers I was wondering if this would react to silicone or if there is other things I should worry about... thank you

Silicone and polymer clay should not touch. I have not heard of any reactions from vinyl.
Blessings!

Silicone shouldn’t touch vinyls. If you can find silicone paci’s, those are best to use with your silicone dolls. :)

I have recently become interested in BJD. When one puts the eyes in the heads it is suggested to use the silicone ear plugs. Is there any problem with that? Ruth

If we can use silicone pacifiers with vinyl dolls, what is the difference with silicone and vinyl touching? Curious because I have heard this for years, but no one has ever posted a reaction.

I've collected silicone dolls for years and never had an issue with paci's.

I haven't experienced it myself, but I've heard people say that silicone pulls the paint off dolls of other mediums. Also, silicone reacts with latex. I've heard only uncured silicone reacts with latex, but personally I wouldn't risk using a latex pacifier with a silicone baby. They are just too expensive to risk it.

Ruth, I'm not sure about the silicone reacting with resin, but I've used the silicone earplugs in my BJDs for years without problems.

Just to be on the safe side, I’d keep different medium dolls away from each other. But as someone said, we’ve used silicone paci’s in reborns for years, with no reaction. Maybe it’s the type of silicone?

You use the silicone earplugs to set the eyes in the BJD. Ruth

I use clothing to separate them. Blankets etc.

Ruth, I thought the same thing. However, if it is a problem, we would all be in trouble. I have not seen any problems to date, other than some putty turning gooey like gum in warm rooms.

I have used those rubber pacifers on mine and even forgot about one and left it there for a week! but I did nothing to my silicone doll... I even use the vintage rubber ones and latex and no problems at all... just my experience anyway!!
