    Oct 31, 2011, 2:36 AM - Gelatin Joker Scars #1

    Hi guys!

    I ordered two sets of the gelatin scars, and had a practice run with one set today.

    They glued on easily and are quite comfortable.

    The only problem I have is the line between my skin and the gelatin. When I begin to apply make up, the join becomes very noticeable. I've got water based red, which took nicely. For the white I've got Leichner Theatrical Clown White.

    The gelatin is different to my skin, and I'm concerned it's going to be really obvious. I used the gelatin blender, and it did help a fair bit, but I must be missing something.

    Thanks

    its all about how you blend in the makeup and match the gelatin to your own skin colour tone

    So how do I do it? I was using a cotton bud with blender to make the edge melt and get it closer.

    I hadn't no. I watched the video on Nimba for the scars and he applied makeup after it was glued on. Would you suggest it then?

    Maybe I need to have another watch and be more patient.

    Thanks
