CHICKEN, Hey, what’s up guys in my last video(?) I spent the entire video pouring about four pounds of [silicone] over top of a fresh cooked chicken. A lot of you wondered Why now, it’s been about 48 hours later and the silicone has fully cured. So why don’t we cut it open and see just what happened to the chicken inside? Now the coolest thing about a two-part silicone kit is both parts start out as liquid, But when you mix the [two] parts together it begins a chain reaction that cures the two materials into a silicone rubber Silicone is a very cool material. when it sets, It doesn’t stick to anything, so by encapsulating my chicken with silicone rather than wasting it I immortalized it Let me show you what I mean. Now honestly. I’m really curious to see exactly what happened to the chicken inside, And I am a little bit concerned because one thing I didn’t expect was the chicken was less dense than the silicone itself. There was Actually one part near the edge where the chicken started floating up in [the] silicone Which made me realize I probably should have waited it down with a rock or something heavy And this did get me pretty worried that we ruined the whole batch. I did try pushing it down with a spatula to hold it down until the rubber started setting a little bit more, But then when I took it out, I found a soft spot in the top of the rubber which made me think we might have trapped an air bubble. Look at the bowls and look at the mixtures. This stuff is really cool because it still looks like liquid frosting, But if you touch it you can see, it’s quite rubbery and where we’ve got the beaters here. We don’t have to wipe that off with a cloth because it’s not that messy, you can actually just grab it and Peel strands of the rubber off. It’s the coolest thing you can see it cleans up. You don’t even need to wash it, Just pull the rubber off and it’s as good as new. That’s because silicone does not stick to things. In fact, the only thing that it really does stick to is other [silicones] So by using a silicone spatula I’ve pretty much ruined it because this is turned into one big block chunk of silicone, so unfortunately I Got to throw that away, but that’s really not that big of a deal. I wonder if you can make your own balloons? Oh, yeah Now honestly, I’m just as curious as you to see what happened to the chicken inside. You can see 48 hours later this has completely turned to rubber. I mean, I got my kids poking their fingers into it you can see it’s no longer a liquid. I’m guessing the chicken is basically just going to fall out of the mold the meat should be totally fine. We could just heat it up and have it for lunch. So let’s cut this open and see if that’s really the case I decided to make my chicken mold in an acrylic box because that way we could get some different camera angles. That’s really neat. But I also designed it so that it bolts together and the reason I did this is because this chunk of Silicon will be extremely Difficult to get out like this but if we unscrew the different Walls We can take the panels apart and basically knock the rubber block out until we’ve got just one big chunk of rubber that we can Deal with a lot more conveniently this chunk of rubber probably weighs about  pounds There’s a chicken in there somewhere if I cut away this top flap you can actually see the chicken inside there And it looks like cold chicken It’s maybe a couple of days old but
No Big deal the cool thing is you can see the silicone isn’t sticking to it at all and we could just cut this straight in Half but [I] want to use this as a mold [so] I think the best way to do that is to make kind of jagged cuts back and forth almost like a saw blade Because that’s going to help the mold close back together a little more seamlessly for when you go to pour things like chocolate and gummies all right the chicken is out and you can see the silicone has a cavity where the chicken used to be that means if we Mixed up some gummy syrup and poured it in there we [should] be able to cast ourselves [a] Lifelike replica of the chicken itself and if you look at the chicken you can see the meats actually in really great condition And it tastes just like chicken. It’s just a little bit cold There’s nothing quite like having cold chicken for breakfast So check this out guys my wife actually just went and heated up the chicken and brought it back So we could try it and tell you how it tastes after sitting in silicone for two days surprisingly It actually smells pretty good actually smells as fresh and delicious as it did the day it came from the store I’m gonna go ahead and let my wife have the first bite so she can give you some honest and genuine feedback about what she really thinks He’s a chicken. [it’s] actually really good. All right. It’s good chicken is good Nothing wasted because [this] sat in a block [of] silicone for two days there was no air that was able to get So no Bacteria was the only decomposing plus. We had it sitting in the fridge as well still tender and juicy Now let’s take a look at our rubber pieces just to see how well they turned out you know surprisingly I didn’t actually find an air bubble in there at all I think this is just from wearing the chicken raised up it got really thin and that’s why I was able to push down on It but the rubber seems to be in really good [shape] and if we push the two pieces together you can see all the seams Disappear and it actually looks very promising that we could cast ourselves the gummy chicken What do you think should we try that in the next video? So we’ve got ourselves a rubber chicken mold. We’ve got an acrylic box that’s designed so we can flip this thing upside down pack it back inside and bolt it [back] together and now we’ve got ourselves a Silicone Candy mold for making gummy chickens I went to the local Super center, and I got a ton of Karo syrup some jello and some gelatin I’m going to make up a big batch of gummy syrup and see if we can make ourselves a gummy chicken. Will it work? Your guess is as good as mine. We’re going to find out in the [next] video, but until then thanks so much for joining me for this experiment I’ll be looking for you the next one. Talk to you then.
