Use the convex rounded side of the Derma Wax Spatula to take Derma Wax out of the jar. By scraping it out, you already make the texture a bit flexible. You then make the wax easier to model by applying it to the ball of your thumb and scraping it off again with the spatula two or three times. The wax must be flexible but also firm and must definitely not be allowed to get too soft and sticky. Apply Derma Wax to the skin with the convex rounded side of the spatula and smooth the edges down so that grease and moisture cannot get underneath. Smooth the Derma Wax surface and edges off with the fingertip, using a little bit of Grimas Cleansing Cream. Dab all over with a dry, clean make-up sponge. Doing this, you remove the excess Cleansing Cream and you create a skin-texture effect. Powder the whole with a make-up sponge with Grimas Transparent Powder to matt and fix it; then turn the sponge over and continue dabbing with the clean side until the excess powder has been removed.
Derma Wax is a transparent wax. If you want the wax to have the proper colour when used more thickly to create a deformation (a large lump, for instance), you can do this using Grimas Crème Make-up Pure or Camouflage Make-up Pure or similar products. Powder off with a make-up sponge with Grimas Transparent Powder or similar product to matt and fix it, then turn the sponge over and continue dabbing with the clean side until the excess powder has been removed.
To create an 'open wound', the Derma Wax construction has to be 'cut open' with the sharp side of a Derma Wax spatula. Lubricate the tip of the spatula with a little bit of Cleansing Cream. This will allow the spatula to slide more easily through the Derma Wax, preventing it from sticking to the spatula.
Opening the wound edges up allows you to create a tattered effect. Raise the 'wound edges' using a Derma Wax spatula, lightly lubricated with Cleansing Cream. Do this carefully.
Colouring: To add a suggestion of depth to the 'wound', colour the bottom of the wound using black make-up. Then you colour the inner side of the wound with dark red make-up (Grimas Water Make-up Pure or Crème Make-up Pure or similar products).
Scrape the Derma Wax off the skin with the spatula. Then massage Grimas Multi Remover, Cleansing Cream or similar product into the skin and remove the material with a tissue. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion or similar product.
