275 Bloom Gelatin powder has a good strong tear strength (the higher the bloom, the greater the tear resistance) and is used the world over by special effects make-up artists to make their own gelatin for wounds and other prosthetic appliances. Gelatin is a great product to use for all sorts of quick and different make-up effects. There are different recipes available but typically you can use glycerine, sorbitol and a bit of zinc oxide (all available here on our store) to make a basic gelatin appliance. You can also add flocking or coloured powders to achieve a skin tone. The photo here of some gelatin cubes we made were all done with 275 Bloom Gelatin and different coloured powders.
