Default TPE Solvent - Argggh!

I have just gone through the ordeal of repairing both of Alyssal's pinky fingers. Both had succumbed to the wire poking out the end syndrome.
Fortunately, they could both afford to be shortened by a little and actually improve her hand shape so I was happy to pull back the skin and shorten the wires by just under a centimetre.
Her left hand had just suffered a poke hole from the wire so I drew the solvent brush through the hole and pressed it back together for considerably longer than I had expected before the hole sealed.
I should have taken that as a warning.
Moving on to her right I first addressed the tear at her knuckle wiping on the solvent and pressing the two flaps together. Without warning what had been a narrow slit became a gaping abyss as the solvent dissolved all the flesh around the first knuckle!
There was no gently pressing this together.
As an emergency measure, I have used some TPE donated from her removable vagina to make up the flesh and and am slowly reducing that into shape again.
Hopefully, that will work. I can't find one fingernail but that's not the end of the world.
Not quite the perfect surgery I had envisaged.
...
So what is TPE filler and where does one get it?

It sounds like you have already made it!

Essentially, the filler appears to be TPE & TPE Glue mixed together to form a gloop.

Aha! I just need to work out the proportions. Also, I can't keep snipping bits off to fill other bits. Is there a market for offcuts of TPE? Colour matching is going to be an issue obviously.

I think that is one of the reasons people get a 2nd or 3rd insert to be used as „spare“ TPE. Maybe your vendor could provide you with some inserts or spare tpe parts…

Jo

P.S. One of the reasons I went down the silicone road…

The neck area around the head bolt is a useful area for taking donations. In moderation of course!

You can make it all tpe filler is, is dissolved TPE in a solvent like xylene anyone claiming otherwise is merely giving a sales pitch to sell TPE dissolved in a solvent.

Sorry to hear about your trouble I was watching a guy replacing a hand skeleton last night and he said if you apply too much tpe glue especially at the edges it can cause the slit to increase in size and become larger.

He was dead on the money there!

And it doesn't take that much where the TPE is quite spare like around fingers!

That's a good idea.

My disasters with TPE filler are well documented.

I feel for you

Default TPE filler

I have tried tpe glue and shredded tpe mixed to make up a hole which was too big and to fill an anus hole where the ball had come out,pushed in, it was fixed eventually.
Lovedoll do sell syringes of 2 colour tpe mix which I have purchased from them.
