Application Tips

How to apply a FOAM LATEX prosthetic


1. Make sure your skin is free of dirt, oils and makeup. 2. Keep thin edges intact and remove any extra powder on the prosthetic. 3. Use a skin safe adhesive to glue down prosthetic with a thin brush or cotton swab. We recommend starting from the middle and working your way outward toward the edges adding small amounts of glue at a time. Glue the thin edges down last. Using an outward rolling motion with the q-tip will help to un-roll any edges. 4. Stipple a small amount of Pros-Aide around the edges. This will help blend the edges into the skin and seal them down. 5. When glue is dry, powder to remove stickiness. 6. You are ready to paint! We recommend using PAX, Rubber Mask Grease or Alcohol activated make-up. Pro Tip- To make your paint job last longer, seal prosthetic and skin with a fixer spray or make-up sealer. We love Kryolan's fixing spray! GLUE- we recommend using Pros-Aide or Silabond by EBA.

How to apply a PRO TRANSFER prosthetic


1. Make sure skin is free from oils, dirt or make-up. 2. Carefully remove your transfer from the card stock. 3. Place your transfer texture side down on the shiny side of the white water slide paper. Press the transfer down firmly, especially around the edges. Cut off the excess paper around the transfer. Adding a thin layer of adhesive on top of the prosthetic will help with the transfer. 4. Carefully peel off the clear plastic paper, leaving the transfer texture side down on the shiny side of the white paper. If there are stuck areas, use a cotton swab with a small amount of rubbing alcohol to help transfer the prosthetic. 5. Place the transfer smooth side down on the skin. Press the transfer to ensure a firm bond. Using water, thoroughly wet the back of the white water slide paper. To make the prosthetic last longer, add a small amount of adhesive to the skin before applying (optional). 6. Slowly peel back the water slide paper. 7.
