A cult favourite in the special effects makeup industry, Glatzan L is a liquid synthetic material for creation of ultra-thin bald caps. In a well-ventilated room, Glatzan is thinly and uniformly applied by brush to a head form and allowed to dry. After the surface has dried, this procedure should be repeated at least three times, in order to reach the required material thickness. The outer borders of the cap, however, should consist of only 1 or 2 layers, to provide an especially thin edge for fine transitions. After application of the last layer, the bald cap should be allowed to thoroughly dry all the way through (for 6-12 hours). It can then be thoroughly powdered and carefully removed from the head form. The removal process should start at the nape of the neck and then proceed slowly in the direction of the forehead. Bald caps created in this way should be used only after the fumes have completely dispersed, and after there is no greatly noticeable smell of solvent.
