So as I went to IMATS on sunday I did a video of the things I got from there on my YouTube channel. I didn’t include any special FX things on there because it would have been too long so I thought I would do a blog post about them.

So the only place I really went to for special FX purchases was Kryolan, I haven’t actually bought anything like these things before so it was all very overwhelming when i got to the stall.
I knew what basic things I needed so I picked up those first. It took me some time to decide what size I would get because I knew I wouldn’t be back at IMATS for a year. But if I didn’t get on with the product then I would have wasted my money! …I generally got the medium size of everything in the end!
Firstly I picked up some Latex Liquid.
Im so excited to try this out because I have only ever used eyelash glue for cuts with tissue paper and I never really used it in large quantities so I will be interested to see how I get on.
The next thing I bought was some Rigid Collodion, Ive seen so many people use it on YouTube and I think it looks really cool. Like BeautifulYouTV’S video on a quick scar. So I think I will get on with this product as it looks quite easy to use.
Of course I need to take the rigid collodion off so the lady at the stall said the best thing to use was all clear which is a sort of acetone, a bottle of that went straight into my basket. Ive heard that using Rigid Collodion in large quantities in the same area can be dangerous so I definitely need to make sure it’s taken off properly.
Next thing I bought was a rainbow circle colour wheel.
These are different to normal face paint as you don’t need to add water to them as they are a greasepaint. The colours are perfect for bruises as well as black eyes!
