Professional Quality Cosmetic Wheel For Replicating Realistic WoundsIf you look closely at a real cut, laceration or puncture wound, you will usually notice discoloration in the lower layers of the dermis and underlying tissues. This is usually trapped blood or inflammation that also causes swelling and other changes in texture around the wound. If these colors are missing in an artificial special effects wound, it can make even the best prosthetic look fake. Fortunately, this color wheel by Ben Nye includes six shades of alcohol activated cosmetics to help replicate truly real looking cuts, bruises and scrapes.Cosmetics That Apply & Set QuicklyCosmetic palettes like this Cuts & Bruises color wheel by Ben Nye are increasingly popular. Just a few drops of alcohol can be used to blend and dilute a specific color. The more alcohol you add the more diluted it becomes. This makes it easy to mute tones or blend colors together seamlessly. Once you have the effect just the way you want it, you simply let the alcohol dry. This will lock it in place for hours without smudging or accidentally wiping off. Or use without alcohol and set with translucent powder.
