recent project we spent a great deal of time testing paint systems for
After exhaustive tests with various products we found Fuse FX to be the
most durable, effective and consistent product available.
It's now the only product I'll use for painting platinum silicones!

Using Fuse FX's Royal Jel-e and Bond FX saves me alot of time, by being
able to successfully cast platinum silicone into a tin mold. When you
only have a couple of days to do an effect, every minute counts.

need to add flocking and I'm done!..."
FuseFX Silicone paints Are the best I have seen on the market today. They
provide great colors for Human Skin tones, and creatures alike. The
system is very convenient to use, there is no mess of dealing with
pigments and weighing out your silicone... Just squirt, mix, and thin
with solvent. its very easy and hassle free...it allows me to work much
more quickly, especially for the colors I use in almost every paint job
I do. allowing me to always have the perfect color instead of
mixing it each and every time I paint a Piece.
For me, the FuseFX Paints
have been great "tools" in my Painting kit, I say tools because they
really aid to the artist, helping everything go more smoothly and
efficiently throughout the painting process. from tinting my silicone, to
painting...and even final matting of the piece the whole line of
products have gone through the testing regiment in real time working
environments for production and pulled through with flying Colors.
I've been using
silicone for a number of years now for prosthetics. Up until now, I've
used pretty much everything to both intrinsically and extrinsically
color it. Some things work better than others, and some things are more
economical than others. You can pretty much get the result you're
looking for with enough experimentation. The problem is getting the
same results time after time while keeping costs under control.
wishing Guy the best when he first launched his products. I've heard
many here on the Lab tell how much they like them. I've seen a few
finished pieces and thought they looked great, but I figured I could do
the same with my usual formulas and techniques. I thought it would save
me money in the long run and still look good.
wrong on both counts.
got to try some of Guy's products today. I had a rush job for
prosthetics that had to be made today and shipped to Australia
TOMORROW. I decided to give FuseFX a try (believe me when I tell you I
was a little hesitant using a new product for this job).
NEVER GO BACK TO DOING IT MY OLD WAY.
FuseFX products are INCREDIBLE! I wish I had listened to many of you
and tried them earlier! Why didn't some of you just slap me?
tried everything yet, but I plan to in the coming weeks. I expect I'll
be blown away even more.
cheap? Not on the surface. Until you add up all the costs of time,
rejects, materials, etc., you finally realize the HUGE savings that
come from the ease of use and the consistency of your pieces.
Absolutely unbelievable. I provide prosthetics all over the world
(Singapore is next week), and after doing some math, I will actually be
saving money - and so will my clients.
this sounds like a paid advertisement for Guy, but believe me, this
review of his products comes from the heart. I'm one of those very
skeptical people when it comes to the latest and greatest products. I'm
not taken in easily and if I can do it better and cheaper I will. Not
this time. I'm sold on FuseFX.
of you who are like I was (oh, I'll try it SOMEDAY), don't wait. Trust
me - it's worth it.
Guy, for some great products.
Both Darren and myself love Fuse F.x. and you made life a lot easier
for us with the silicone zombies we did recently , especialy with
getting the colours right on the dark skinned zombie. Realy cant say
enough good things about you or your products my friend.
Again Guy thanks so much for your support and the products you keep
coming up with. I think the title Silicone guru pretty much sums you
up. Always coming up with something new to make life in the trenches
simpler for us , thanks
Just wanted to
say thanks again for all the help you gave me with my silicon project.
It saved me time and a lot of frustration - in fact it probably kept
the whole project from turning into a big gloopy mess period.
The Royal Jell-E and especially the FuseFX paints worked like a
dream! Painting realistic skin tones is something I always
struggle with but in this case nothing could have been easier - I
just followed the simple steps you outlined in your IMATS workshop and
couldn't be happier with the results. They were a real joy to use.
other than the eyes and the hair I think it's pretty good for a first
silicon head no? :)
FuseFX Paints are an amazing system. Whether you’re a make-up effects
who pre-paints his/her silicone prosthetics or if you’re a forensic
creating life-like humans from a past long gone – this is the system
The silicone pigments are just spot on; they can create any skin shade
imaginable and I yet have to find a model who skin tone doesn’t match
of the S-300 series! The silicone M/F
series paints are just a breeze to use – it only takes a couple of
coloring to give a lifeless piece of silicone the look of life. I can’t
enough good things about the FuseFX products: I use them so much that I
a worktable in my workshop just for working with them. I used it to
silicone prosthetics, color dummy-heads and make medical prosthetic
it works for everything! If you want to color silicone the right way
FuseFX… No doubt about it!

“The FuseFX Platinum
Silicone Paint System developed by Guy Louis-XVI has been extremely
useful in my prosthetic practice. It is easy to use, precise, and Guy’s
understanding of creating life-like colour is amazing. I particularly
enjoy using FuseFX paint for those small extrinsic touches that
complete a custom prosthesis. I also find FuseFX useful when painting
custom designed tattoos. There are, no doubt, many more applications
that I have yet to discover. FuseFX Platinum Paint is a well thought
out, quality system. Thanks, Guy for developing it!”

There is not much to say about FuseFX
- other than BRILLIANT!
The flesh color he sent me (S-301,
light) is a complex and sophisticated light Caucasian tone. The
recommended 3 drops per 10 grams of silicone is spot on, giving just
the right amount of coloration to the dragon skin I used. The stuff
looked like skin. Guy told me that of all the flesh colors in the FUSE
FX range, this one gives him the most trouble mixing up. I can see why.
It's not too grey, not too pink or yellow. A good, general purpose
flesh color. (Nothing like certain 'basic flesh' tones offered
elsewhere that look like that orange vinyl doll color, if you know what
I mean). Although designed to work with platinum silicone, there is no
reason why these colors shouldn't be used in tin.
The FuseFX range of platinum silicone
paints is pure GENIUS. Packaged in side-by-side plastic syringes, this
two-part platinum silicone paint system dispenses equal amounts of
parts A and B with color ... so no weighing or measuring is required.
It feels about a 25-30 Shore A to my fingers. It sticks fine to the
dragon skin and Silicones, Inc P-44 I tried it on. You dispense only
use, and save the rest for future projects.
This is the start of something big.
Tom McLaughlin, Silicone Artist
After seeing you at the tradeshow and you giving your demonstration of
just how easy it is to work with FuseFX, I had to go home and try it
Low and behold, you were absolutely right! The paints worked wonders
and my piece couldn't have looked better. I just have to
say that it's hard to go wrong with that stuff. I'm really diggin' it.
I appreciate your hard work into putting these paints on the shelves,
cuz I don't think I'd use anything else. Thanks Guy!
"I absolutely love FuseFX; it makes my job easier and even more
enjoyable. Silicone is the future of Special Make Up FX. The
color options that are available help bring my work more to life than I
ever imagined! I love the dispenser tubes, what a great way to
store the paints. Allot of time and work has gone into the
development of FuseFX, they are the
best thing I have used!
I am planning on doing all my heads, puppets and body parts on this
next film in a Platinum base silicone just because of FuseFX!!!
well done Guy!"
Toby Creature Make Up FX Shop, Atlanta Georgia
I have been using Fuse FX since Guy first released them, and have been
amazed at their convenience since the moment I snapped open my first
tube. The time saved is amazing, and the degrees to which the
colors last is uncanny! A little bit goes a very long
way. the color selection is top notch, and in the rare occasion
that the color you want doesn't exist, Fuse FX beautifully merges with
other silicone color systems. They are thinned down simply
for air brushing, and stipple washes, and don't ever seem to fade! I
recommend this product to anyone who works with platinum silicones from
the novice to the advanced artist!
