The Trauma Wheel features three shades of our FX Creme colors that can be used to quickly create injury and abrasion simulations for special effects and character makeup. Utilize these intensely pigmented shades on their own, or mix together to create unique blends of tones that enhance realism.
This wheel fits comfortably in any makeup kit, and has a clear lid for easy visual accessibility. This wheel is an essential tool for any special effects, film & television, or theatrical makeup artist.
Test colors on an inconspicuous area of the skin first, as harmless staining may occur due to the high concentration of cosmetic pigments.

Apply to the skin with a sponge, fingertip, or synthetic brush such as our Texture Brushes. Set with Neutral Set, or Colorless Luxury Powder to retain brilliance and resist perspiration.
Using a metal palette spatula, mix two or more shades on the built-in acrylic palette for customized creme tones. Mix a few drops of isopropyl alcohol into the cremes to create sheer colors that give the illusion of being submerged under the skin to create depth and layers.
Apply red tones to imitate fresh wounds and irritated skin. Deeper reds and crimsons can be introduced to mimic coagulating or dried blood. Blend in deep blue tones to age bruises or wounds. To lighten the shade of the colors, use a mixing palette to add White FX-0 to any desired color.
Gently wipe off makeup with Quick Cleanse on a cotton pad. Wash off residue with soap and water, oil-free Hydra Cleanse, or a facial wipe. Due to vivid pigments used in our red, blue, and violet colors, staining may occur on sensitive skin, such as the area around the eyes.
