Alchohol Activated Makeup

Alcohol Activated Makeup can be used to simulate most injuries or illnesses including burns, bruises, cuts, scrapes, and scabs. Alchohol activated makeup can also be used to color prosthetics, fake body parts, create veins and to simulate fake dirt on the skin. Alchohol activated makeup is highly pigmented, water, sweat and transfer proof, and dries almost instantly.

Pigments must be activated with 99% alcohol (do not use 70% alcohol, water or any other solvent). Spray or dab the solvent onto the color, swirl color for at least 30 seconds, and apply with a brush, sponge or mascara wand. Allow 99% alcohol to soak into the color for several seconds for more opaque application.

To remove, apply 99% isopropyl rubbing alcohol on a tissue and gently press and wipe. For sensitive skin, remove with isopropyl myristate. Repeat if necessary until product is removed.
