MEL Gel Prosthetic Cream is similar to other filler type creamed acrylic adhesive products (sometimes referred to as cosmetic "bondo", "cabo patch" or "spackle") in that it can be used as a prosthetic appliance repair agent, ridge or hole filler, seam or edge blender, or as a self sticking prosthetic making material, such as transfers. It contains a light flesh-toned flocking in the proprietary cream formula, and once the cream is spatulated into the desired form or finish it dries into a very matte, flexible piece. It's great to use to create scars and other wounds or textures in molds or directly on the skin!
It's easily smoothed or shaped for perfect blending, and right down to a nothing edge. Dries quickly to a translucent secure bond to skin, yet remains flexible in movement. It can be sealed, textured, stippled, painted or whatever finish you need it to be. It's perfect for molding in plaster, resin, silicone, or plastic prepared molds. Blends easily with a wet sponge or moistened tool.
