  2. In another paper cup mix together 10 grams of talc U.S.P., 6 grams of pulverized cake makeup of whatever shade you want for the makeup, and 1 teaspoon of plain Knox gelatine.
  3. Stir 3 tablespoons of hot water into the powders, one at a time, until they are dissolved.
  4. Stir the solution slowly into the latex, then pour the mixture into glass jars.
  5. Place the open jars into hot water for 10 minutes, and stir occasionally
  6. Cap the jars and keep them refrigerated until needed.
  7. To prepare the mixture for use, heat a jar of the mixture in hot water until the contents becomes liquefied.
