These synthetic foam Hydra Sponges are sized to work easily in your hand to coat, smooth, stipple, feather, or wipe on water activated makeup or other liquid makeup products. You can also cut or tear the sponge to customize the size further for your particular needs. When fully moistened the sponge has a soft and pliable surface that provides for smooth and even application of liquid makeup products. It squeezes easily for complete control and flexibility, and without over-absorbing the makeup. Great to use for both face and body painting. We recommend washing it out with an antibacterial soap after use, and allow to dry completely before storing it. 2 3/4" diameter sponge.
