You cover the natural eye on top of which you are going to place the latex application with zinc oxide tape and gauze for protection.
Apply a little Grimas Mastix Extra to the inside of the scales/adhesive edge and allow it to dry for a few seconds. Do the following to get the correct degree of adhesion: press the latex prostetic lightly in place and then remove it again straight away. Wait a few seconds and reposition the application, pressing the edges in place with a tissue.

Protect the eyes by closing them and covering them with a tissue. Can cause serious damage to the eyes.

To get a smooth transition between the latex prostetic and the skin, even the edges off as follows: apply a thin line of eyelash adhesive to the edge of a sponge and dab this over the transition between the latex prostetic and the skin. Allow to dry with help of a hairdryer until the result is transparent. Colour the edges of the transition with the colour being used. Powder it all off with Grimas Transparent Powder or Fixing Powder and then remove any excess powder. Dab the application with a Stipple Sponge to apply the effect of a skin structure.
The application covers the eyebrow.

Apply a base with Grimas Crème Make-up Pure. The older skin has a pale colour because of the diminished blood supply. Work out the base on the ears and in the neck.

Take the Crème Make-up Pure out with a clean spatula and work from the spatula. Apply it with a slightly damp latex sponge or make-up sponge onto the skin.

You can use Wool Crepe to create rough, exaggerated eyebrows, which you apply at unequal heights, as the character has an asymmetrical face.


Grimas Wolcrêpe is used to create beards, moustaches and eyebrows or to camouflage the edges of a beard set. It is a series of pieces of sheep's wool (approximately 15 cm in length) braided together.
