November 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #180: Stage Makeup Techniques - Homemade Glue for Facial Decals

Tip of the Week

This nature´s glue is safe for the face and easy to make for professional costume make-up. Cook one large potato in its skin until tender. Let cool. Cut into two and use the cut surfaces as a glue. Cut small decals (hearts, stars, moons, flowers, scars) from bright colored tissue paper (because it is sufficiently absorbent), rub the decals with cooked potato, and stick on clean, dry cheeks and forehead. Potato glue is equally handy to stick glitter on the face.
