PREPARATION

Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work using clean materials (sponges, brushes, spatulas, water bowls) and change the water regularly.

Get the subject to put on any clothes beforehand that have to be put on over the head. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

Grimas Latex Prosthetics are rubber noses, snouts, horns, ears and chins. They are used for the theatre, carnival, film and television.
LATEX PROSTHETICS = Latex prostetics
First degrease and clean the skin you are going to be working on with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. Then dry the skin with a tissue.
CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
MEASURING/FITTING

Take the latex prostetic out of the box and place it on the skin to get an impression of whether the edges are a good fit and where it is soon going to be glued on.

Mark out the edge on the skin with a make-up pencil or some Transparent Powder

COLOURING LATEX

Everything that is going to be coloured in a skin tone - except for the edges - must be pre-coloured slightly with red to suggest naturally perfused skin. To do this, apply Grimas Special Effects Powder 504 or a red Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge using a Make-up Sponge or Powder Rouge Brush.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
MAKE-UP SPONGES (DISPOSABLE) = Make-up Sponges (disposable)
BRUSHES POWDER ROUGE = Brushes Powder/Rouge
Then use a sponge to apply a covering layer of Grimas Camouflage Make-up Pure in the desired skin shade. Work directly from the stick or spatula.

If you want to give the latex prostetic a brighter colour, use Grimas Crème Make-up Pure. Note: don't use Crème Make-up Pure for skin tones, but use Grimas Camouflage Make-up Pure.

CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure
Put a piece of wadding in the nose to maintain its shape and to absorb perspiration.
STICKING ON LATEX

Attaching latex onto the skin
Apply a little Grimas Mastix Extra to the inside of the scales/adhesive edge and allow it to dry for a few seconds.
Do the following to get the correct degree of adhesion: press the latex prostetic lightly in place and then remove it again straight away. Wait a few seconds and reposition the application, pressing the edges in place with a tissue.

Protect the eyes by closing them and covering them with a tissue. Can cause serious damage to the eyes.

SMOOTHING AWAY THE EDGES

To get a smooth transition between the latex prostetic and the skin, even the edges off as follows: apply a thin line of eyelash adhesive to the edge of a sponge and dab this over the transition between the latex prostetic and the skin. Allow to dry with help of a hairdryer until the result is transparent. Repeat this process until a nice and even transition is obtained.

Colour the edges of the transition with the colour being used.

Work the make-up on the skin if necessary.
Take the Crème Make-up Pure out with a clean spatula and work from the spatula.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

Detach the adhesive edge with a cotton bud soaked in Grimas Mastix Remover.

MASTIX REMOVER = Mastix Remover
Remove the adhesive and make-up residues from the latex prostetic with Mastix Remover. Clean the latex prostetic afterwards using water and soap, and powder it with Grimas Transparent Powder after drying (with a dryer, if necessary). Keep in a dark place.

Massage Grimas Multi Remover Pure or Cleansing Cream into the skin and remove with a tissue. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

CLEANSING CREAM / SKINCARE CREAM = Cleansing Cream
CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

The sponges are disposable so you can throw them away after use. If you do want to reuse them, first rinse them under the tap with some soap or shampoo or wash them in the washing machine (in a net bag or pillow case), set to at least 60°C.

You can clean brushes with water and soap or shampoo. Put the moist hairs of the brushes back into shape by hand after washing. Dry the brushes lying flat on a towel and do not place them upright, since that causes the moisture to run down into the shaft.

Store the make-up in a dry and cool place until the next time you use it.
