Collodion is a classic product for creation of simulated scars (also known as Scarring Material). Collodion, which dries extremely fast, is first applied to the skin, the skin is then pressed together to form a fold. The optical impression of a scar results by puckering wrinkling and creating a realistic scar effect. The artificial scar can be coloured with a face and body paint.
Collodion contains ether and acts to degrease the skin. After being used, the skin should be treated with cream that contains fat, and the skin should be protected from being stressed.
