Used a Zaiqa Foods® brown colored batch made approximately 3-4 days ago.
02/17/2001, 9ish am, began application with plastic cone. Allowed to dry and dabbed with lemon juice/sugar mixture. After drying, design painted with New Skin®. Took applied-1 photo at this point. Once dry, the entire area was covered with liquid latex, allowed to dry, and powdered. Went to bed.
02/17/2001, 7pm, steamed and removed latex after getting up. Then steamed again to help scrape off paste. Took removed-1 photo. Note that if you apply New Skin® to design prior to application of liquid latex, the latex doesn't remove the paste as it's being peeled off. OTOH, the paste was still well moist underneath it all (smeared really badly when scraping began, but easily remedied by scraping with steam)....but the paste didn't budge at all during the sleeptime...detail was preserved.
02/24/2001, 5am, took removed-2 photo.
