The Telesis 8 Matte Lace Adhesive is the ideal glue for laying down hair pieces, as it dries matte, it doesn't crack and it will move with your actor's face! This is a non-flammable, non-toxic glue and is safer than most spirit gums. It 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 glues. In order to apply the matte adhesive effectively, the Telesis 8 Modifier must be used in conjunction with the Matte Lace adhesive during the application process! Before use, make sure you shake the bottle vigorously to ensure the matting agents are not settled at the bottom. Get two small cups and mark them accordingly to avoid accidentally mixing up your adhesive and your thinner. Dip your brush in the thinner first (be sure to skim off any excess thinner) and then dip your brush directly into the cup of Matte Lace Adhesive and apply it to the skin. Brush the adhesive on quickly, and lay the lace on top immediately. Be sure to work quickly as the adhesive dries fast!
