Order information:

Q: Why do you only have online ordering?

A: It cuts down on overall costs and allows us to keep pricing down. If you need to get a hold of someone or have a question about a product, service, or custom project, contact: info@morphstore.com.

Foam Latex masks:

Foam latex is a widely used industry standard. Though not all that common, it is our obligation to inform you that some people have an allergic reaction to rubber material. If you experience any reaction to latex or foam latex, discontinue use and consult you physician.

Q: How do you remove or apply a prosthetic?

A:Please download this PDF for instructions.

Q: Is it dangerous to put the adhesive over your eyebrows?

A: You can put adhesive over the eyebrows. Make sure that you take your time in the removal process and really work the remover into the brow area. If you are still a little leery about doing it, you can put the adhesive around the brows if you wish. The reason for not having air pockets is so that you have the best surface contact you can that will in turn allow you to have more expression. However, you can avoid the brows if you want to. Both ways can be done with equal success.

Q: What type of adhesive/glue is recommended to apply this?

A: A medical grade adhesive like what we carry (Pro Adhesive) is the best. It is water based and can be removed with our remover.

 

Q: Can I use Spirit Gum?

A: Spirit Gum is an alcohol based adhesive. It can dry or irritate the skin, and usually dries crusty and cracks. Our pro adhesive is flexible and comfortable to use designed to move with you.


Q: Can I reuse my pieces?

A: It is always best to use a new piece for every application. You get better blending edges and the piece usually gets quite damaged during the removal process. For sanitary purposes as well, it’s best to use a new piece.

Q: What is the extra foam around the edges for?

A. The extra foam is called “flashing”. Gently remove this before application by pulling it away between your fingers.

Q: What do I use to color my pieces?

A: There are many things you can use to color a foam latex piece. A basic application can be done using acrylic paint mixed with pro adhesive, 1:1. i.e. if you have 5 grams of acrylic, you would add 5 grams of pro adhesive to make your base color. A base color is used to seal the foam piece and serve as a starting point (sometimes referred to as an undertone) to coloring your foam piece. Try and only color the foam piece with your base color. Once that is dry, you can go over it with cream makeup (RCMA), skin illustrators, or RMG (Rubber Mask Grease) and airbrush makeup, to name a few. For more information on application tips, please download our complete PDF on this page on the application and removal of a prosthetic.

Q: How long can I wear my foam piece?

A: As a general rule, no more than 8 hours. This includes your application time.

Q: Why aren’t the foam masks painted?

A: It gives you more options for coloring and doesn’t restrict you to a predetermined color scheme.

Q: Do you do custom masks?

A: Yes. All custom mask work is done within the state of Florida. We can create anything you can dream up. We can create your mask over a generic head or face or, for custom masks that specifically fit your facial structure; we require a head cast and advanced time to have your mask made in time for your event or gathering. We can also do full body creature suits as well. Please contact us at: info@morphstore.com to inquire about custom orders.

Rubber Masks:

Q: Can you create slip rubber masks?

A: Yes. Rubber masks as with all our private projects, are created and priced on a by project basis. We are always eager to discuss the next exciting project.
