ATTAGEL is a thickening agent that can be used with Green Marble Concentrate to create the most realistic old age effects.
Green Marble SLr offers a subtle approach to aging. To achieve the desired affect, the finished product will require a translucent and equally subtle paint. The Skin Illustrator color systems provide the perfect compliment.
To mix the Green Marble SLr into an ager, you must have Green Marble SLr concentrate and attagel (attagel is a clay powder used for facial masks). Ratios vary between 1 parts attagel, to 3-6 parts SLr concentrate (by volume). The ager does not work with the SPRAY Green Marble SLr.
Attagel to Green Marble Concentrate
1 oz. TO 3 oz. Heavy ager on most skin types
1 oz. TO 4 oz. Medium Heavy
1 oz. TO 5 oz. Medium Light
1 oz. TO 6 oz. Light ager on most skin types
A 1 oz. attagel to 6 oz. GM Concentrate ratio still works well as a fine-line wrinkler when used lightly. This formula also works well for lighter applications, when only a texture change is desirable. Without affecting large wrinkles, this formula changes the texture of the skin, which is excellent for subtle, close-up aging. The application technique is the same idea as stretch and stipple.*(see note below).
- Desired effect
- Specific area of face
- Elasticity of subjects skin
- Application method: foam sponge latex vs. brush
With these variables in mind, alter your formula ratios for different areas of your subjects face in order to customize desired features. This technique may be utilized for the back of your subjects hands as well.
