Due to variance in the display of colors across different monitor types, color swatches may not be an exact match to actual product. Use for reference only. Skin Illustrator is designed to create a variety of different effects, even covering tattoos or coloring hair. It can be used on foam latex, gelatin, plastic, and silicone appliances. The high pigment content provides rich color tones that stay in place and last all day. Whether you use a brush, air brush, sponge or stipple technique, the versatility of Skin Illustrator can fix a problem or keep one from happening! The palette colors must be activated with 99% alcohol, such as Telesis ISO GEL, Skin Illustrator Slow Activator, or REEL Creations 99% Alcohol Developer, to apply and requires very little touch up other than an occasional powdering. DO NOT USE 70% alcohol, MEK, acetone, water, or any other solvent, as you will not achieve maximum color saturation. To use, simply saturate the top surface of the color well with the 99%, then work a brush or swab on the top of the surface until it liquefies. It then can be applied with a brush, sponge, swab or even a disposable mascara wand. The Complexion Palette set was created to give artists a wider range of red tones and adjusting colors, which allows the fine tuning of an appliance makeup or to help blend the appliance with the natural skin tones. The blue based reds can be used as-is or custom blended together with other Skin Illustrator colors from other palette sets. Skin Illustrator also be easily blended with other brands of alcohol activated colors and palettes. The colors also be adjusted into warmer ranges by using the Light Sienna and Warm Ochre adjusters. Pastel Yellow is a highlighter as well as a lightening tone. RedRum is a blood-like tone with less orange than the FX Palette's Blood Tone color. This allows the artist to put a blood-like flush in the face and body that can be colored to a variety of complexions. Cool Tone (formerly Olive Adjuster) as well as bright tone favorites, like DT Blush, round out a collection of colors that will make matching blush tones a breeze. The Complexion Palette is an excellent way to fine tune your makeups, and a definite must for your makeup kit. These colors are ideal for beauty, character, and all special effects makeup.
