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.

Attention: do not apply make-up directly after shaving. When the skin is shaved, it is damaged, making the skin easy to dry out and become irritated. The irritation can get worse when subsequently an aftershave product containing alcohol is used. The irritated skin can react sensitively to the make-up. You can prevent this by leaving several hours between the shaving and the application of make-up. You can apply a skincare cream like Under Make-up Base directly after shaving.

It is important to follow the instructions for removing the make-up, particularly if the make-up is being used several days in a row.

First degrease and clean the skin you are going to be working on with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. Then dry the skin with a tissue.

With pieces of Derma Wax that fit together you create step by step a streamer-shaped construction across the face.

PROCEDURE FOR DERMA WAX

Use the convex rounded side of the Derma Wax Spatula to take Derma Wax out of the jar. By scraping it out, you already make the texture a bit flexible.

DERMA WAX SPATULA = Derma Wax Spatula
DERMA WAX = Derma Wax
You then make the wax easier to model by applying it to the ball of your thumb and scraping it off again with the spatula two or three times.
The wax must be flexible but also firm and must definitely not be allowed to get too soft and sticky.
With pieces of Derma Wax that fit together you create step by step a streamer-shaped construction across the face.

Apply Derma Wax to the skin with the convex rounded side of the spatula and smooth the edges down so that grease and moisture cannot get underneath. Smooth the Derma Wax surface and edges off with the fingertip, using a little bit of Grimas Cleansing Cream. Dab all over with a dry, clean make-up sponge. Powder the whole with a make-up sponge with Grimas Transparent Powder to matt and fix it; then turn the sponge over and continue dabbing with the clean side until the excess powder has been removed.

To create an 'open wound', the Derma Wax construction has to be 'cut open' with the sharp side of a Derma Wax spatula. Lubricate the tip of the spatula with a little bit of Cleansing Cream. This will allow the spatula to slide more easily through the Derma Wax, preventing it from sticking to the spatula.
Opening the wound edges up allows you to create a tattered effect. Raise the 'wound edges' using a Derma Wax spatula, lightly lubricated with Cleansing Cream. Do this carefully.

First you colour the wound black, using a brush, to suggest depth. Water Make-up (Pure) works basically the same way as watercolour paints.

The side of the face that is to be robot-like, you give a basis of white Cake Make-up. Do not forget to colour the ear and side of the neck.
CAKE MAKE-UP = Cake Make-up
SYSTEM PACKAGING = Water bowls
You apply Cake Make-up with a slightly damp make-up sponge. If you work with too much moisture, streaks will form.
You can press the make-up sponge down onto a tissue to remove any excess moisture.

Take the make-up sponge between the fingertips and squeeze it together to create a round surface. With this surface the make-up can be applied.

CAKE MAKE-UP = Cake Make-up
MAKE-UP SPONGE = Make-up Sponge
First dab a little Cake Make-up onto the hand to check the colour intensity. Then apply it evenly from top to bottom. Work the Cake Make-up out properly, up into the hairline, and do not forget the ears and neck. This is how you avoid a mask-like effect. Cake Make-up dries quickly, so you need to work quickly to achieve a nice result. If the result is not even, turn the sponge that you worked with over and use the clean side to even out the make-up. Any stripes after drying can be gently rubbed away with a soft tissue or cloth.

Advice: white Cake Make-up is transparent and therefore never completely covers up.

CAKE MAKE-UP = Cake Make-up
MAKE-UP SPONGE = Make-up Sponge
On top of the Cake base you apply a silver layer with Water Make-up (Pure) (701). Once this is dry, you draw the pattern and the rivets in black.

Water Make-up works just like watercolour paint. The best way to apply Grimas Water Make-up (Pure) and Water Make-up Pearl Pure is to use a brush. Use the brush and a little water to soften the make-up and make it a bit pasty. Test the colour intensity on the hand. Don't work too dry, but do not use too much water. Water Make-up (Pure) dries within 15 seconds. If you do not want the colours to mix, be sure to wait for the first layer to dry before applying another colour over it or up against it.

The shape, width and quality of the brush are to a great extent qualifying the effect you can achieve with it. For instance, round brushes are ideal for making curves and drawing curls. You draw straight lines preferably with a flat brush, keeping the handle of the brush pointed in the direction of the line. To draw a thin line, you do not necessarily need to use a narrow brush. You can also use the edge of a flat brush for that. This brush is also very convenient for making a thick line merge into a thin one, turning the brush on its side in one fluid action as you go automatically changes the line from thick to thinner. When you come to the end of a line, lift the brush from the skin in a single smooth movement.
Hint: to make beautiful, thin lines, you mix the Water Make-up with Cleansing Lotion instead of water.

CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
The more quickly you draw the line the straighter it will be, and the more pressure you apply on the brush, the thicker the line becomes.
FINISHING

Blood
You can apply it directly from the tube or with a brush. Apply copious amounts of blood using a brush, until the blood starts to run.

You colour the eyelid red with Water Make-Up Pure.

General tip: Water Make-up can be used to add (additional) colour to the hair and eyebrows, provided that the hair is not permed, bleached or dyed. Use a toothbrush to do this.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

Scrape the Derma Wax off the skin with the spatula. Then massage Grimas Multi Remover or Cleansing Cream into the skin and remove the material with a tissue. Do not use Afschmink, as this contains waxes and oils which actually adhere the Water Make-up to the skin. Cleanse the skin afterwards with cleansing lotion.

Hair that has been coloured using Water Make-up (Pure) can be washed with shampoo.

If Water Make-up gets onto clothing, rinse it out under a tap. If Blood, Filmblood or Blood Paste got onto clothing, rinse it out under a tap. Leave the item of clothing to soak in water containing a pre-wash (Biotex). Then wash it by hand or put it in the washing machine.

CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

If necessary, rinse the Water Make-up clean and wipe the surfaces of the colours dry with clean tissues. Let the make-up dry out in the air and only put the lid back on when the Water Make-up is dry. Store it in a dry and cool place until the next time you use it. Store the make-up in a dry and cool place until the next time you use it.

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.
