Sure, what is in the egg is composed of 65% dimethylsiloxane (hydroxy-terminated polymers with boric acid), 17% silica (crystalline quartz), 9% Thixatrol ST (castor oil derivative), 4% polydimethylsiloxane, 1% decamethyl cyclopentasiloxane, 1% glycerine, and 1% titanium dioxide. But did that help you any?

Back in the olden days when newspapers (remember those?) were printed with petroleum-based inks, you could use this to transfer images and and then to distort them. Helpful yet?
