Tear a circle in tissue or paper towel. Apply the ZS to the models skin, then place the circle material over top of it and smooth out with your finger. Once that is done, you can then cover the material with ZS till it is smooth. Once dry you do not have to powder, and will accept any paints both water based and alcohol based. You can use it with any paints we currently stock in the Paintopia Pro store.
Due to the fact that this product dries very quickly, you can use it for blending edges on prosthetics.
Start out by spreading the ZS on the person’s skin with a small craft stick or wooden stirrer (like the ones you find in all good coffee shops) Give the ZS about 30 sec to start drying take the edge of the craft stick and make a cut in the ZS. As you make the cut you will see it start to pull away just like a cut does when you cut your skin. Take your paints and now just color and add blood as needed. (Remember less is more in some cases)
Start out by spreading the ZS on the skin with a craft stick/coffee stirrer, then wait till the ZS is about half way dry. You will have to play with this to get the right timing. The ZS dries faster the warmer the person is as it works off the body heat to help it dry so fast. Once semi dry take a Qtip or Cotton Swab and push into the ZS then pull out the ZS. Once you have a hole in the ZS you can move it around to look like a deep wound, then just color with your favorite body paint.
This is the easiest of all the techniques. Just spread the ZS on the person’s neck and then use a Qtip or Cotton Swab to make the bites by pushing the Q tip or Cotton Swab and rotating in a circle and pulling away the ZS leaving a perfect bite. You can also use this same idea for a mouth bite by just using the Qtip or Cotton Swab to make the separate teeth marks.
There is so many creative uses for ZS the list above could go on for ever!
Here at Paintopia we use it all the time and especially around Halloween. One of our personal favourite thing to do is to premake prosthetic pieces with it, if you combine it with some oatmeal on sheets of baking paper it'll make wonderful pre made pieces of zombie flesh. You can flip them over once cured and apply a layer of adhesive to the back making them perfect for adding quickly to all your scare makeups this year!
