The silicone never dried, only the outer quarter of an inch dried like the skin of a pudding. I wonder if the buttheads on this board ever tried delving into the silicone after thinking it was dry. I suspect that they assumed the entire thing was dry.
I've taken silicone out of some pro stocks I've used and it's always been solid as heck. Usually comes out in a couple big chunks. Using a cotton dam will help, but if it's not tight silicone can leak through. I use cotton pads for makeup removal when I do silicone so I know it's thick enough and shaped well.
