It’s used for sealing stuff but also makes an excellent response if the sticker recesses are deep enough.

what kind of stores sell this and its not deep but i will try if i found it


#5

In the US it’s sold at automotive parts stores. Can you post a picture of the sticker recess? We’d probably be able to tell if it’s deep enough from a pic.

if that can help

Unfortunately, that looks too shallow for silicone. You can do a search “homemade friction stickers” and find some info on how to make them yourself. Otherwise, looks like you’ll need to purchase some.

You could always get some flowable silicone and try it. If it comes out really quickly, it’s too shallow, but it’s worth a try. People have said yoyos that use k-pads are too shallow for silicone, but they’re wrong.
