SAM (Silicone Art Materials) - Silicone Finishing Powder
*NEW IMPROVED FORMULA!!!
S.A.M. (Silicone Art Materials) SFP Silicone Finishing Powder cuts shine, provides dry slip and gives a unique finish that can make raw silicone feel more like skin than rubber. Use SFP as a finish for silicone prosthetics, appliances, special effects, dolls, puppets, animatronics, display, prototype and props. You might find other uses. Let us know! Unlike jagged talc and powders that are ground to size, SFP is made from skin-safe polymer and silica microspheres. With particles 1/3 the size of talcum powder, SFP is very sheer. A little goes a long way. Itʼs synergistic blend of translucent skin-safe polymer microspheres provides a ball-bearing action enabling silicone to slide against itself and other materials with greater ease. Like a silicone hand sliding into a pocket or sleeve, clothes on a doll. A glide that remains until abraded off. SFP can be applied to deadened, gelled or tacky silicones and silicone rubbers to remove the sheen and stickiness without significantly changing appearance. SFP scatters light giving an HD friendly ʻsoft-focusʼ effect. A distinctly different look than standard powders and the dead matte of fumed silica (Cab-o-sil®, TS-100®). If it has too much ʻglowʼ simply overpowder with face powder or fumed silica. Much of SFPʼs ball-bearing action will be retained. Care should be taken lighting with flash photography.
Application: For best results: First clean with silicone friendly solvent to open pores and allow powder in. Apply to clean raw silicone (no encapsulator) with brush or powder puff. Work in well with a chip brush, using a stabbing and rubbing action. Remove excess with moist brush or sponge, followed by a clean dry brush.
*Available size: 8gm, 16gm, 20gm, 70gm & 140gm.
