How to

Going Bald

Step 1Wrap the hair as flat as possible to the head using Hair Gel, use GF-Qat for thick or long hair. Apply Translucent Powder 20 g to set the GF-Qat which also speeds up the drying process.
Step 2Fit the bald cap, asking the model to grip the front, while you pull over the back of the head. Ensure it is positioned well and no wrinkles are visible.
Step 3Cut around the ears in a curve, (never straight lines to avoid tearing) allowing a margin from the hairline. Pro Tip: Instead of cutting, apply the bald cap around the ears and carefully dissolve a hole using Acetone 1000 ml into the bald cap and pull the ear through. Be cautious.
Step 4Carefully fold the bald cap back at the forehead and apply Spirit Gum 12 ml to the skin, wait until it’s tacky before adhering. Pro Tip: for increased flexibility use Silicone Adhesive Regular Bond 30 ml to adhere Glatzan Bald Cap Uncolored large and acrylic-based adhesive, Pros-Aide - The Original - 15 ml, for Latex Bald Cap Colored large.
Step 5The back of the neck can be a problem area so ensure the model’s head is leant backwards looking up toward the ceiling to enable the bald cap to be taught avoiding unneccessary wrinkles. Pull the bald cap tightly towards the back and glue using Spirit Gum 12 ml.
Step 6Finally adhere the bald caps to the temples using the same process as with the forehead. When gluing around the ears, use a round ended tool that won’t tear the bald cap. Lift up the bald cap to apply Spirit Gum 12 ml.
Step 7To conceal the edges of the bald cap use Liquid Latex clear 100 ml to blend the Latex Bald Cap Colored large and for a Glatzan Bald Cap Uncolored large one blend using Acetone 1000 ml to dissolve the edges using a cotton bud. To create a realistic impression of skin, stipple Pros-Aide - The Original - 15 ml over the Bald Cap.
Step 8Next color the Latex Bald Cap Colored large, creating the impression of skin using a Rubber Pore Sponge and Rubber Mask Grease 8 ml. For Glatzan Bald Cap Uncolored large mix Aquacolor 8 ml or Dermacolor Camouflage Creme 4 g with alcohol or use Body Illustration Make-up Color Refill.
Step 9Finally complete the look using TV Paint Stick or Aquacolor 8 ml for a Glatzan Bald Cap Uncolored large or Cake Make-up 35 g for a Latex Bald Cap Colored large, matching the bald head to the face and your bald cap application is complete.
