Optically clear, castable silicone rubber for juggling spheres.

I'm looking for a cost-effective silicone-rubber solution for a run of juggling spheres. The rubber should be as optically transparent as possible as I will be casting various objects inside of them.

Some examples include:


Many thanks in advance.
