I was unlucky enough to have my tarp receive a few burn holes due to some friends over sized bonfire my trip this last weekend

i was reading a bunch of posts on the subject while searching and found lots on repairing the sil-nylon in which they used GE Silicone II + some scrap piece of material. Was wondering would this also work on my 70d nylon HH hex tarp? Also does it matter what piece of scrap i use, i know i have an old stuff sack that is nylon or sil-nylon. just not sure if there is much difference between the two. Help a adhesive noob out
