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! This palette was custom designed by 3 time Academy Award winning Makeup Artist, Ve Neil, for use on the movie, Pirates of The Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. The palette contains the following colors: Black, Cedar, Lao 2, Natural 2, Rice Paper, Bruised Tone, Red Oxide, Aged Blood, Vein Tone, Prime Yellow. This is a nice combination of skin tones plus some FX colors that will give you a range of ability to do a fair amount of skin tones along with blood effects, bruising, and a variety of other distressed effects. The colors from this palette can be 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 are safe for use on the lips, skin, hair and around the eyes, and can be used with PAX, rubber mask grease, foam latex, gelatin, plastic and silicone appliances. The palette colors must be activated with 99% alcohol, such as Telesis ISO GE, Skin Illustrator Slow Activator, or REEL Creations 99% Alcohol Developer, to apply and requires very little touch up other than an occasional powdering. Removal is easy with PPI's Telesis Super Solv, or Telesis Makeup Remover. 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.
