The ideal adhesive for laying hair goods. The matting agents
are mixed intrinsically during the manufacturing process which
ensures a fluid consistency so the adhesive never gets hard
or cracks - it dries matte and stays matte. Telesis 5 Matte
Adhesive is pliable and will move with your actor's face. It
is non-flammable, non toxic and safer than most spirit gums.
Telesis 5 Matte Lace Adhesive contains a combination of matting
agents that are mixed into the adhesive during the manufacturing
process. Because of this, the adhesive is thick and viscous and it
cannot be "thinned down" like other silicone adhesives. In order to
apply the matte adhesive effectively, Telesis 5 Thinner must be used
in conjunction with the lace adhesive during the application process.
To start, vigorously shake the bottle of T 5 Matte adhesive for several
minutes before using. Make sure that the ball baring in the bottle can
be seen and heard, and that the matting agents are not settled on the
bottom of the bottle but evenly dispersed in the adhesive immediately
Take two cc cups and mark them accordingly to prevent any mix up between
the adhesive and thinner. Pour a small amount of adhesive into a cc cup
and then pour a small amount of Telesis 5 Thinner into the other cc cup.
Dip your brush into the thinner and skim off any excess on the side of
the container. Dip your brush directly into the cc cup of T 5 Matte lace
adhesive and apply it to the skin. Brush the adhesive on quickly and lay
the lace on top immediately. You do not have to touch it or tap it to get
it tacky or matted. The adhesive dries quickly so you will need to work fast.
Once the adhesive is dry it will not turn white or yellow and it will be
pliable enough to move with your actor's face. (Remember: If you do not
dip your brush into the thinner prior to applying the adhesive, the T 5
Matte adhesive will be too thick to apply effectively).
If you apply too much adhesive and it builds up on the lace, or if you
need to do any touch ups, dip your brush into the thinner and it will tap
right out. Once the adhesive dries in the cc cup and gets hard, it will
not longer be usable so pour it sparingly prior to your application.
