Before You Start: Your makeup should be applied in a clean, well lit area. Give yourself plenty of room, and arrange your materials neatly in front of you. If you are doing the makeup on yourself, make sure you have an amply sized, well lit mirror. Wash your hands and you are ready to begin.

Time Needed: One “missing tooth” will require about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Graftobian offers tooth wax in both brown and black.

Household Tools Required & Optional:

1. Tooth picks – required
2. Paper towel – required
3. Tooth brush – optional

Tooth Wax Tip

Depending on the positioning of the wax, its density, etc. you can make a tooth fully or partially disappear.

Applying the makeup: Missing Tooth

1. Dry the tooth (and those adjacent to it) with an absorbent paper towel. The dryer your tooth, the better the wax will be able to adhere. Apply Black Tooth Wax to the dry tooth.

Tooth Wax Tip

2. Use a toothpick to remove any residual wax from the adjacent teeth.

3. Lick black tooth.

Tip: For the rotten tooth look, apply Brown Tooth Wax and then partially scrape off sections of the tooth with a toothpick and then scuff with an old toothbrush until you have the desired rotten scummy tooth look. Smile!
