SULLIVAN TIPS

Getting complete paint coverage!

STEP 1
Glue the leg using a Sullivan’s Teflon Comb and either Sullivan’s Primetime or Tail Adhesive. If you are less experienced, opt for Primetime as you are less likely to gunk up the leg. Remember to hold can 6 inches away from the leg

STEP 2
Spray on Sullivan’s White Powder’Ful to build leg by thickening hair follicles and filling in between hairs. Alternate with Tail Adhesive to create a strong hold. If painting a black leg, use Black Powder’Ful for better coverage. Powder’Ful is also a great tool for clipping the leg.

STEP 3
Once you are done building the leg with Powder’Ful, complete cover the leg with Sullivan’s Jet Black, first and then Sullivan’s Black Finisher for a natural black look. Allow dry time between layers.
