My heart goes out to you. We have done these for one customer and they took FFFFOOOOOOORRRRRREEEEEEVVVVVVVVEEEEERRRRR! lol. We just couldn't make them work for the long run. We would have to charge a dollar each!

Do you leave it as a "bead" or do you smooth it out? We only use slip grips upon cutomer request (about 2 or 3 a show) we find it much easier to buy the adhesive back foam rubber ones.

It does take forever, but the trade off is worth it for me. I have customers bring me bows from other places to put the silicone on them! I have just left it as a bead. When I try to smooth it, it gets everywhere! I bought some of the tape to try and it seems to work ok, but not as good as the real thing Eventually, I will probably buy at least standard color clips and use the tape for big shows. I get so many compliments on it that I'm too afraid to switch. And honestly, my daughter is 5 and I've not found anything that stays in her hair except that! I love it!!!!

I make the bows, find the coordinating colors, then line the clips...ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS Match the clip color to the bow, it looks tacky otherwise!!..jmo

I think we tried it using some aquarium sealant, I also never was able to see how it held up. Does it not peel?

I just buy the stuff in the bathroom section at Walmart. There's one with a red label and one with a blue label, I can't remember the difference. I've used both and not noticed any difference in them.

I was looking for the one we bought. You have me curious about trying it again! lol

I think it was from DAP. Is that a company it was in a blue or aqua metal tube( like toothpaste, but metal).

Mine is GE. It just says premium waterproof silicone. I have only had trouble with it peeling off when my 2 year old gets ahold of her bows! I tilt the applicator at like 45 degrees and put about 1 1/2-2 inches across the end. That seems to make it a little flatter and neater.

Hmm, I will have to try using the silicone sometime. What I've been using mostly keeps clips in my daughter's hair, and my customer's are happy with it thus far, but with the way my daughter plays I don't find the clips will stay in place for very long lol.

How long does it take for the silicone to dry? And I'm assuming that you add it to the strip of ribbon before you line the clip right?
