Smooth On Q Ballz Bald Cap Plastic and Encapsulant
Product ID MM-1540

Smooth On Q Ballz Bald Cap Plastic and Encapsulant

  • Description

Smooth-On Q-Ballz™ Bald Cap Plastic and Encapsulant is a versatile single component liquid plastic formula that yields more product for the money than other brands, so you can economically create your own variety of prosthetic appliance needs, such as GFA’s (gel filled appliances) or custom vinyl plastic bald caps.  It’s also great for making small/thin flexible appliances from molds, and it easily repairs any brand of plastic bald cap.  It can also be used to seal molds and clay sculptures prior to molding.  It's an excellent encapsulating agent, not only for soft silicone appliances, but it can also be used on tougher quality gelatin pieces.  When molded it delivers beautiful membrane tapered edges for a smooth edge blend-off the cured material when applied to skin for seamless results.

Apply Q-Ballz™ through an airbrush sprayer or paint in thin layers onto a properly prepared flat mold or bald cap form that will result in a nice stretchable “skin”.   It can also be powdered in-between layers to make a stronger piece or cap.   It can easily be intrinsically colored prior to application, or the finished appliance can be colored with RMG mixed with alcohol or alcohol activated makeup/inks, etc.  For making small appliances use Q-Ballz™ full strength into a prepared mold but apply in very thin layers, and blend out the margins for thin edges.  Edges of prosthetic melt away with acetone, leaving the most lifelike seamless edge blend onto skin that stretches and moves naturally with skin movement.

Creating a Bald cap with Q-Ballz:

  • Apply a thin layer of release agent, such as Mann Ease Release® 200, MM-1313, to a bald cap head form.
  • Stipple undiluted Q-Ballz™ thinly over the desired area of the bald cap head form.
  • Allow at least 10 minutes of drying time between layers.
  • Repeat steps 2-3 to build up an appropriate thickness. Generally, 5-10 layers are sufficient.
  • Allow at least 2 hours for acetone to completely flash off before removing bald cap from the head form.
  • Powder outside of bald cap using talcum powder.
  • Remove bald cap from head form gently using a soft brush and talcum powder.
  • Fine edges of the completed bald cap can be dissolved using acetone.
     

Using Q-Ballz As An Encapsulant for GFA’s (Gel Filled Appliances):

  • Apply a thin layer of release agent, such as Mann Ease Release® 200, MM-1313, to all surfaces of prosthetic mold.
  • Thin Q-Ballz™ with acetone. Generally, 3-4 parts acetone added to 1 part Q-Ballz™ is sufficient.
  • Using an airbrush or other fine mist sprayer, spray a thin layer of thinned Q-Ballz™ over all mold surfaces.
  • Allow at least 10 minutes of drying time between layers.
  • Repeat steps 3-4 to build up an appropriate thickness. Generally, 5-10 layers are sufficient.
  • Fill mold using a silicone gel such as Dragon Skin®, MM-1336, softened with SLACKER®, MM-1409.
  • Allow silicone gel to fully cure before moving onto next step.
  • Optional - spray 3-4 thin layers of thinned Q-Ballz™ over back of appliance.
  • Demold silicone gel filled appliance with the assistance of a soft bush and talcum powder.
  • Fine edges of the completed encapsulated appliance can be dissolved using acetone.
