|Do you want to do body gilding with Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive? You will need the following:|
ASK THE PERSON IF THEY ARE ALLERGIC TO BAND-AIDS OR ADHESIVES. This product does not contain latex, but some people are allergic to adhesives.
If you get this product on clothing, rinse it out with isopropyl alcohol. It will not wash out.
A neck, chest, face, back, belly, arms and shaved legs are ideal places for application. If you apply this Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive to hairy skin, removal will be as difficult as getting bubble gum out of a cocker spaniel's ear.
Remove the tape from the tip when you are ready to work. The tape keeps the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive from leaking out, and it keeps the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive from drying at the tip.
Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive is more liquid than henna paste, so you should use much finer lines. Before cutting any bit off the tip, test your line. You may not need to clip the tip at all. If you need to open up the tip a little, clip very cautiously.
Clip the tip of the cone a tiny bit. Use a smaller line and squeeze less than you would henna paste. I prefer very thin lines which dry quickly. Other people use heavier lines, which dry more slowly.
The Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive will begin to dry quickly. If your lines are thin, the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive will be dry in five minutes. When the body Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive becomes completely transparent, and you can't see any more white, it is dry enough to apply glitter.
Brush glitter on, and brush away excess. Brush very lightly to spread the glitter exactly where you want it to go.
Do you want a design with many colors? You can brush in more colors, but the colors will blend together.
Brush away the excess with a blusher brush.
If the weather is very humid, or if the person is perspiring, you may need to rinse off excess glitter. You can wash away the excess glitter, gilding powder, or metallic powder with soap and water, washing will not disturb the pattern!
Do you want to add another, clearly separate color? Apply more Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive and let that dry.
When your second Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive application is dry, brush in another glitter color.
Brush away the excess with your blusher brush.
If the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive gets gummy or dry at the tip, wipe the tip with an alcohol pad.
No more worries about aftercare! The person can put clothing on over this body art. The person can shower, and the art will not come off! This body art will last between three and seven days, depending on how the person takes care of their art. Your cone of Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive will last for months with no refrigeration or freezing.
Do you want to fill your own cones with a 1 oz jar or 6 oz jar of Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive? You will need the following:
Tape the tips of your cones. Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive may run out of your cone, even if you have rolled the tips very tight. Prepare to fill three cones with one jar of Pros-Aide Cream.
Set cones into a box, and make sure they're not going to tip or fall. Make sure that if they DO tip or fall, they're not going to make a mess of anything that can't be thrown away.
It is not easy to get the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive into your cones without making a mess. This Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive is very difficult to clean up, and can only be cleaned with 91% isopropyl alcohol.
A disposable bulb pipette my be easier for you to work with than a stick or tiny spoon. Suck up some of the adhesive by squeezing the bulb, then squeeze the bulb again to deposit the adhesive into the cone. Get the adhesive down into the cone, not up a side or near the top.
Divide one .5 oz jar of Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive into three cones with a pipette or stick. Do not fill the cone up more than half way.
An over-full cone is much more likely to ooze Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive out the top and make a mess. Use all of the jar of adhesive. If you only use part of the jar, and screw the lid back down, it will glue itself shut.
Wipe any Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive from the open end of the cone.
Roll down the top and tape securely. This cone is probably much smaller than you usually use for henna. Smaller cones are easier to work with for body gilding, smaller cones are less apt to leak, and you will need much less Pros-Aide® Cream than henna.
Tape the tips of the cones so the Pros-Aide® Cream doesn't leak out or clog.
Use disposable tools for filling cones: the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive is extremely difficult to clean up. Wipe your hands clean with isopropyl alcohol: if you have Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive on your fingers, they'll stick to everything you touch.
Your cones will last for months. Do not refrigerate or freeze them.
Do you want to fill many cones from a 6 oz jar of Pros-Aide® Cream?
Roll two dozen cones, tight enough to be closed at the end. Roll enough cones to completely empty the jar. Set the cones into egg cartons so they'll stay upright as you fill them.
Stuff a carrot bag into a water glass.
Scoop the Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive from the jar into one or two carrot bags that are stabilized in a water glass.
Carefully tape down the top of the carrot bag so there are no leaks.
Clip a tiny bit of the tip off the carrot bag.
Squeeze the Pros-Aide® Cream into the cones. Don't fill the cones further than half-way full.
Fold down the tops and tape up the cones as previously directed.
