Once you use Pro Adhesive, you won’t want to use anything else.
First, Pro Adhesive is really strong and will last a LONG time. In fact, it will last all day. And that’s great, especially if you’re on set, walking throughout convention halls for hours or sweat a lot.
In addition, Pro Adhesive is gentle on the skin. It’s non-toxic and can be thinned with water when wet.
Because Pro Adhesive (aka Pros Aide or prosthetic adhesive) has so many benefits, it’s the preferred choice by professional makeup artists, except for Spirit Gum, which is often used to attached hair.
Here’s a summary…
Pro Adhesive is…
- A Strong Adhesive
- Water Soluble
- A Contact Cement – So It Gets Applied to Both Parts
- Dries Clear
- Stays Flexible
Pro Adhesive is a special effects make-up artist favorite.
TIP: Re-activate Pro Adhesive with 99% or 91% rubbing alcohol to loosen your mask or appliance. Let dry and apply powder to the foam latex appliance to make sure the adhesive won’t stick to itself. Clean up your skin with Pro Adhesive remover or mineral oil to remove any adhesive that remains. If you plan on reusing your foam latex mask or appliance, only use rubbing alcohol since the edges will bloat with the oil found in remover. It will be impossible to blend your appliance into your real skin if the edges have bloated.
Advantages over Spirit Gum:
- Does not contain solvents that could irritate your skin
- Water soluble when still wet
- Virtually odorless
- Lasts much longer
- Can be reactivated with 91% or 99% rubbing alcohol
