Frequently asked questions
Can I reuse my prosthetics?
No, all prosthetics including Foam, Silicone and Transfers are ONE TIME USE ONLY. The super fine edges that help the prosthetic blend seamlessly into the skin get damaged during the removal process. After removing the prosthetic, all of the fine edges will be gone and the prosthetic will never blend in the same.
How do I remove my prosthetic?
Do not pull or rip prosthetic off of skin. This can damage the model's skin, tearing off the first layer of the epidermis. Always use caution when removing around the eye area. Always test the make-up remover on your model's forearm to make sure they are not allergic to the remover.
Use an oil based make-up remover. We recommend brands like:
Bond Off by Ben Nye
Super Solv by PPI
Isopropyl Myristate (found at most specialty make-up retail stores)
1. Use a peach powder puff or paddle foundation brush.
2. Dip puff or brush into the remover and work it into the edges.
3. Once you have a lifted edge, work the remover in-between the skin and the prosthetic until the prosthetic is entirley removed.
4. Using the puff or a make-up removing wipe and the remover, gently scrub off any excess glue and make-up.
5. Steam is a great way to get off any stuck on glue! Take a hot shower or use a hot towel to steam the face! Your actors will love you!
6. When all residue is removed, moisturize the skin.
Foam latex contains latex. Do not use if you are sensitive to latex.
Silicone prosthetics are made from Baldiez encapsulator cap plastic and platinum silicone. Do not use if you have a sensitivity to vinyl, acetone or silicone.
Pro-Transfers are made from Pros-Aide cream. Do not use if you are sensitive to Pros-Aide.
We do not recommend applying prosthetics to people with sensitive skin. ALWAYS do a patch test on your models inner forearm to make sure your model is not allergic to any make-up, adhesives, prosthetics or removers.
If you think you are having an allergic reaction, remove the prosthetic as soon as possible. Remove all make-up, glue and residue and thoroughly wash the skin. Moisturise the skin to calm the irritation. Consult a Doctor if symptoms persist.
