Be sure the skin has been gently cleaned and dried before applying the Skin Illustrator colors. Removal is easy with Super Solv, alcohol or isopropyl myristate. Remember to clean the skin after color removal, then apply moisturizer. All Skin Illustrator liquids can be used to replenish the palettes. To refill the palette cells, squirt a thin layer of desired color into cell; stir, then dry with a hairdryer. Repeat the process until the cell is filled. The key to using Skin Illustrator is to take the time to experiment with the colors. Try different application techniques with a sponge, brush or airbrush, and learn how the colors work under varying conditions. Because art is constantly evolving, Skin Illustrator will always be growing and improving. Some colors in the palette may be substituted, but they will always be available in liquids.

    "Skin Illustrator is a meticulously planned make-up system with rich colors that are capable of matching most skin tones. It is a permanent addition to the weapons system in my make-up armada."

  "Nothing I've used before compares to Skin Illustrator. It's the ideal flesh tone color system that makes it easy to do anything. There's no need for mixing because all of the right colors are already made. It's great to use with rubber mask grease, old-age stipple and for color layering. There's really nothing like it...I just love it!"

"Obviously a lot of thought went into making Skin Illustrator. The colors have incredible adaptability and have been adjusted and balanced for film as well as to the eye. It's amazing what you can so with the Flesh Tone Palette alone!"
