Paint and Powder FX Vinyl™ Liquid (formerly Acrylic Vinyl) is a new and improved formula that can be can be applied directly to skin like latex, or brushed, sponged, or even sprayed on. It easily pours and slushes in plaster molds to make custom transparent appliances. It's a fast and easy way to make casualty simulation injuries that don't require makeup because the translucency allows the natural skin tone to show through. This saves time, and extra makeup painting products that would normally be needed with other kinds of appliances. Paint and Powder FX Vinyl™ Liquid Medium no longer needs to be thinned with water to make appliances as this new formulation is already thinned and ready for appliance mold pours right from the bottle. Now you can easily use it straight from the bottle as an encapsulator for other types of FX materials, or as an all over appliance sealer. It's great to use to make custom fit plastic bald caps that simply attach with 99% alcohol. It even works beautifully as an old age stippling medium to create an old age application. This new formulation has an improved longer and stable shelf life now (up to 18 months or more, if tightly closed and stored properly) and it's completely non-toxic and fume-free. IMPORTANT: Contents will separate when not in use or sitting for long periods of time. This is normal for this new formulation. Simply invert bottle up and down, and shake well before each use! Paint and Powder FX Vinyl thins easily with water if you need it thinner, and it can be intrinsically colored if desired. Once it is applied and dry it can be directly dressed out with finishing products, such as blood, etc. Best of all it will remain waterproof, sweat-proof, and durable in long wear. When using the Medium to make appliances you won't need any adhesive to attach them to skin. It applies quickly by simply saturating the piece with 99% alcohol to securely bond with skin. The edges can also be blended or dissolved off with the alcohol for a seamless fit to skin. For super fast molding of this material when cast into plate molds, or creating larger/thick density appliances we strongly recommend that you use Paint and Powder FX Catalyzing Liquid, for quick turn around in drying and curing.

To remove any application of Paint and Powder FX Vinyl™ Liquid or an appliance made from it, simply lift an edge and peel slowly, or dissolve off completely with a solvent remover, such as alcohol. CAUTION: When choosing to dilute Paint and Powder FX Vinyl™ with water, DO NOT pour water into the original bottle! Use a clean separate bottle to make a new diluted solution of it. If you do want to dilute it directly into the bottle, you must use a preservative water, such as Dilution fluid, PPS-0186, to avoid contamination or corruption of product.
