Clear Gloss is a must for any pro artist kit! It has so many uses and can be airbrushed or carefully hand painted on in very thin layers. It's great for thinning the pigment of other Skin Illustrator ink colors too! It's great to use over matte colors to create a more realistic life looking or bolder textured effect with a shiny surface finish. It's the go-to product to produce that surrealistic "doll-like" plastic finish over your makeup creation, or for super high glam effects in a beauty makeup.Clear Gloss a great base coat for a wet or high shine super glossy surface to apply other makeups over. You can even mix into it highlight colors (such as golds, silvers, etc) to give the illusion of a more metallic look, or add in pearlesent effects. It can also be thinned down with Skin Illustrator Activators, which will make it less shiny and more like a waterproof sealing agent. This is “Annabelle” created by popular video blogger, Goldiestarling. She used Clear Gloss to achieve the plastic doll like texture of her fabulous character. Clear Gloss was created especially for use in the movie, "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence". Academy Award winning makeup artist, Ve Neill, used it in an airbrush (shown below) to create the shiny plastic finish on actor Jude Law's face for his character in the film. Depending on how many times you layer this product (or the number of airbrush passes) on skin will determine the results, from a satin gloss to a high gloss finish. Be sure to allow each layer to dry completely before adding another layer.
