We have had loads of messages about using some of our products so we thought we would answer the most asked here.

WHAT ARE PROSTHETIC MASKS?
Prosthetics masks or prosthetic appliances are soft, foam latex appliances that are glued directly to your skin. They move with all your facial expressions allowing you to eat, talk and express yourself, bringing them to life!  Our Prosthetics are exactly like the appliances used in today's movies.
All of our masks are a generic fit meaning they will fit most adult faces.

DO THEY COME PRE-COLORED?
No. Part of the fun is painting them yourself to create your face the way you want to.

CAN I RE-USE THEM?
Yes. If you remove them carefully you can expect to use your appliance approx. 6 uses. We recommend using 70% rubbing alcohol to remove your mask.

WHAT WILL I NEED TO PUT ON THE MASK?
Heres a basic list of the items needed :
· ADHESIVE (spirit gum, pro-adhesive, silicone adhesives, etc)
· RUBBER MASK GREASEPAINT,AIRBRUSH MAKEUP or Cream makeups used with Castor sealer (oil).
· LOOSE POWDER - to set your make-up.
· MAKEUP SPONGES
· POWDER PUFF - to use with your powder.
· MAKEUP BRUSHES
· ADHESIVE REMOVER - we recommend 70% rubbing alcohol if you wish to use your mask again.

HOW LONG CAN I WEAR A PROSTHETIC?
With proper adhesion, you can wear your prosthetic as long as you want. Since they allow your face to breath freely, you won't get too hot.

CAN I USE REGULAR HALLOWEEN MAKEUP OVER THE MASKS?
Not without first using a Castor sealer on the appliance. Regular makeups will streak and eventually break down the foam latex without this sealer. We recommend using Rubber Mask Greasepaint, pax paints, Alcohol based makeups or prosthetic grade airbrush makeups.

I HAVE NO MAKEUP TRAINING. CAN I STILL APPLY AND PAINT THEM?
Definitely. Visit our Tips & Tricks section to see step-by-step directions on application and colouring. There are also loads of videos on You Tube.
