Considered to be one of the most versatile of all theatrical makeup items, Graftobian’s liquid latex can be used as an adhesive, a sealer or even to create skin effects. The formula applies white and turns crystal clear when dried. Examples of latex uses include adhering lightweight facial applications like crepe wool as well as creating scars, blisters, and wrinkled skin. If that wasn’t enough, it can also be used to make latex pieces. The uses for this product are practically endless!
Coat appliance and/or wax edges or surfaces with liquid latex prior to makeup application. This allows you to blend the edges into the skin, giving a more natural appearance.
Clear Liquid latex remains extremely tacky after it dries. This makes it a fantastic adhesive for everything from textile to glitter. To keep freshly-made scars and blisters from sticking to themselves and to everything else, always powder the finished product. This is also important when using liquid latex as a sealer.
Creating blisters:Apply roundish areas of clear liquid latex with a non-latex sponge and allow to dry until clear. Pinch the center and pull out to form a blister. Break the blister and roll edges outward if desired.
Making scars: Roll dried latex into ridges and seal the ridge down with another coat of latex.
Creating texture: Adhere household cereals and/or legumes onto the top of dried latex and seal with another few coats.
Making an exit wound: Apply two coats of liquid latex. Lay on facial tissue and tear off excess. Apply 2-3 additional coats of clear liquid latex using a non-latex sponge, allowing each coat to dry before starting the next. Pinch the center and pull out. Using scissors, carefully cut and powder the "wounded flesh" as you go. Powder to ensure the latex doesn't stick to itself. Finish off with makeup and/or blood.
Tips: When applying several coats of clear liquid latex, always allow the first layer to dry before applying the next. To keep this product fresh, please consider shelf life when ordering.
* Latex can cause allergic reactions for some people. Test this product on a small patch of skin before using.
