- wrinkles, and
Directions for use:
Apply a thin layer of collodion to fleshy skin and allow it to dry completely. You will feel the collodion tighten and pull and pucker the skin where applied. The looser the skin, the more dramatic effect you can achieve! It is especially noticeable on cheeks, and can be layered with multiple dried coats to get deeper lines.
Add to the look with some water-based makeup by adding some pink for a new scar, or brown for an old one. Use powder to remove any lasting shine and finish with setting spray.
Repeated application of rigid collodion to the same spot can cause damage to the skin and actual scarring. Safely remove the dried film by using Collodion Remover and cotton balls. Soak the cotton balls in the oily remover and wipe at the collodion effect until it peels off gently.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be careful when applying collodion to avoid the eyes and mouth. Apply in a well ventilated area. Keep away from open flames, as this product is highly flammable.
