Yep, it actually cures faster
. I know some exhibit manufacturers who put it on dry seams (must be dry to hold) then spritz the outside with water to make it cure faster. Fun experiment: mix a full tube of silicone with a tsp of water (and 1 drop of food coloring, so you can see the mix), mix well, and 'paint' onto a surface you want to mold. Because the water is mixed into the silicone, it cures in ~20 minutes and it will not stick permanently to anything; really, it peels right off. Nice quick way to make a mold of bark or a rock surface, which you can then cast with concrete, or I even did my sons footprints--literally stuck his feet in a pan of caulk then poured plaster of Paris into the mold. Fun.
