Liquid Latex, Clear
Graftobian’s liquid latex formula is white when wet and crystal clear when dried. It’s considered to be the most versatile of all theatrical makeup items. Adhere lightweight facial applications like crepe wool; create scars, blisters, wrinkled skin; coat appliance and wax edges or surfaces prior to makeup application. It can also be used to make latex pieces. Available in a variety of sizes.
To use: When applying several coats of latex, always allow the first layer to dry before applying the next.
To create blisters, apply roundish areas of 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.
To make your own scars, play around with rolling the latex into ridges and sealing the ridge down with another coat of latex.
To create texture, work household cereals and legumes onto the top of it and finish with another few coats.
To create an exit wound, apply two coats of latex. Lay on facial tissue and tear off excess. Apply 2-3 additional coats of liquid latex using a non-latex sponge. Pinch the center and pull out. Using scissors, carefully cut and powder the wounded flesh as you go. If you don’t powder, the latex will stick to itself. Finish off with makeup and/or blood.
