'Degassed' Ecoflex 00-30 silicone is poured into a 2 part Matrix NEO mold which has a layer of dish soap release applied.
After the material cures, it is demolded by soaking the mold in water to activate the dish soap release.
Skin Tite silicone adhesive is applied to the area where the piece will be applied.
The piece is applied over the Skin Tite adhesive.
The piece is held in place until the Skin Tite adhesive fully cures.
The edges are blended using thickened material.
The piece is colored using an airbrush and airbrush makeup.
The completed scar appliance looks completely natural and organic.
