Steve Wang – Biomorphs, Inc.

Thank you for introducing me to your silicones. Both myself and my staff were very pleased with the quality and performance of QM 2125 and QM Skin 30. I found the QM 2125 to perform virtually identically with other quality molding silicones I have used in the past but with better pricing and I actually prefer Skin 30 over other skinning silicones both for its intrinsic elasticity and the way it paints up. QM silicones is now my brand of choice.

Best Regards,

James Hakola – Mr.

MPK’s resins and silicones are of the highest quality , and meet all my needs for production. Every batch is consistent and always performs with the reliability I need as a commercial production shop MPK-70-180 is the best modeler friendly resin I have ever used. It sands the most easily and is strong and flexible to support thin parts without damage.

Their service is always fast and friendly. Whatever I need is always in stock.
MPK is an invaluable asset for my model-making business.

Paul R. Barnes – FX Masters

I recently had the opportunity to use an MPK  silicone on a job  for the Fox pilot “Sons of Anarchy”. My company, FX Masters, was brought on to create a preemie baby rod puppet. As the puppet had to move freely, I plasticized the silicone 30%.

As with any silicone that’s been plasticized, I was anxious about paint and patch  adhesion. We used conventional 100% silicone caulk (found at Lowe’s)  and thinned it as necessary, with naptha, before mixing in our tints. The results were astounding. The paint adhesion was far superior to any silicone I’ve used before. So much so that even after extensive handling, there was no detectable wear.

The seams on the piece, brushed out and blended with naptha, became undetectable, and never showed any signs of separation. After twenty years in the  motion picture special makeup effects business, I unequivocally believe that this is the best skin material I have ever used. I thoroughly endorse the mold making silicones that Mike Knott has provided me.
