WS-Series Matting Powder is a unique blend of water-based matting agents designed to eliminate the shine from painted silicone surfaces, resulting in a flat matt finish with little or no sheen.
WS Matting Powder residue washes off clean with a little soap and warm water, dries clear, and does not leave a "blue" tint to the surface, unlike Cabosil. In fact WS Matting Powder contains NO Amorphous silica or Cabosil.
WS Matting Powder is normally used in conjunction with FuseFX M/F-110 Clear. A very thin layer of M/F-110 Clear is applied to the piece and, while the piece is still wet, WS Matting Powder is sprinkled over the surface. The M/F-110 Clear thus acts as a binding agent, bonding the matting powder to the surface. After curing, excess matt powder is washed away with soap and water.
Because of this partnership, WS Matting Powder is available on its own OR in kit form, accompanied by M/F-110 Clear.
FuseFX WS-Series Matting Powder is a unique blend of water base matting agents
designed to eliminate the shine off of silicone painted surfaces, giving it a flat matt finish with
little to no sheen.
FuseFX WS-Series Matting Powders must be used with M/F-110 Clear and both should be
catalyzed together for best results.
FuseFX WS-Series Matting Powders contains NO Amorphous Silica and NO Cabosil.
Please use an appropriate dust mask when using this product.
How to use:
After completing the final coat, touch-ups or airbrushed painting, mix equal amounts of Part A
and Part B of M/F-110 Clear. Apply a thin coat of M/F-110 Clear to the piece and let cure or
force dry with a hair dryer. Apply a second coat of M/F-110 Clear, this time very lightly, just
enough to “wet” the surface. Go over the surface with a “dry” brush to pick up any extra blobs
of paint making the surface even. The surface must be just moist otherwise it will leave little
specks of white powder. In this case you can touch it up the white spots by carefully
scrapping off or touching up with a little color.
While the M/F-110 Clear is still wet, loosely apply the FuseFX Matting Powder by sprinkling
or using a dry “fluff” brush stippling the surface as you go, do not rub. A small Make-up Artist
“Blush Brush” works great. You don’t have to apply lots of powder just a little stippling to
cover the surface. A little goes a long way.
Once the surface is fully covered, use a hair dryer to force catalyzed the Clear and Powder
together for MINIMUM of 3 to 5 minutes or let cure for about 3 hours. You may also place
the powdered piece IN A WARM OVER ONLY. Too hot may cause the powder to crystallize,
creating an uneven surface.
Once cured, you can wash the prosthesis under warm to hot water and a little soap, pat dry
and the surface is now ready.
If you missed any spots, simply apply a thin coat of M/F-110 Clear to the shiny areas and
add a little FuseFX Matting Powder.
Again, use a hair dryer to force cure the clear and powder together for MINIMUM of 3 to 5
Once cured, you can wash the prosthesis under warm water and a little soap and pat dry.
If you find that the surface is too matt, you can always add a little sheen back to your already
matt surface by stippling a very light thin coat of M/F-110 Clear.
