Help creating scars
« on: Apr 01, 2016, 08:52 PM »
So, to help me get in character for cons and longer troops (too much of a hassle for shorter troops), I use rigid collodion to give my self realistic looking (and actually more importantly to me, feeling) facial scars. I just have one problem. After an hour or 2, they start peeling off. Which kind of defeats the purpose. Any tips for how to make them stick better?

I never had a problem with rigid collodion peeling off, but maybe putting spirit gum on top, once the collodion dried, would help it keep together better for you.

I've had that same issue when I used it too. What I realized after many attempts, I was using too thin of a coat of it. Try being generous with it. And also make sure your still stretching your face as it dries. I found out that helps the skin not fight against it as much once its completely dry.

This is good to know.  Been looking into liquid latex for scarring, but colloidon I'd forgotten about.
