Use colored Apoxie and mix the colors to the interior skin color you desire. Install it all prior to attaching any skin. OR use a mouth cup.


Tear mender

Tear Mender is a leather glue that behaves about like rubber cement. Paint it on your teeth (or eyes), allow a few minutes to dry, then paint your mount as usual. once your paint has dried, rub the tear mender with your finger to get a loose edge then peel off. Just be careful when you are applying to not get any on the gums because it will leave a line that is very difficult to blend. To clean up your application brush, dip your still wet brush in MEK then clean bristles with a wire brush.
