4. Paint lips with brown/maroon acrylic ink or silicone pigment (was just using lipstick :lol)


There is a product called Psycho paint. This is a silicone based paint that can be used to paint the lips after the molding is done. The paint is silicone so it will not crack and is extreamly flexible. It takes pigments well if you use silicone based paints.

My advice is get a few sil-pigments and mix till you get the right color for the lips then use that to add to the psycho-paint. You can apply it using an air-brush (just thin it out), or brush... you can even use your fingers to get a more natural look.

Psycho Paint


Thanks Robert!

Have also used acrylic inks mixed with platsil to achieve the same look. The inks are a little cheaper than silicone pigments! Can be thinned out with alcohol before applying.

In fact, I was reading a post on the Effects Lab website about colouring silicone and people have used all sorts from acrylic to creme makeup mixed with the silicone with good results!

Anyway this costume has been sold recently so I'm starting work on a new one.
