Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the shelf life of Zombie Skin?

A: Zombie Skin usually has a shelf life of about a year depending on how it is kept. We have samples 4+ years old stored at room temperature and away from excess heat and cold.

Q: How should I store Zombie Skin?

A:  Store Zombie Skin at room temperature, NOT in hot or cold areas. Extreme cold temperatures will ruin Zombie Skin and all latex in general. Once frozen, the product is ruined. To help prolong storage, cover latex with plastic wrap to remove as much air as possible from the container. This will aide in keeping the product longer.

Q: Can I use Zombie Skin if I have a latex allergy?

A: No. Zombie Skin is made with latex and latex solids. Always test your subject for allergic reactions by putting ZS on a small area on the inside forearm. Zombie skin is for external use only. Do not use around eyes.

Q: Can Zombie Skin be used to blend edges on foam latex appliances?

A: Yes, just use very thin coats and it will fill in no problem.

Q: How long does it take for Zombie Skin to dry?

A: Zombie Skin is designed to dry from air and body heat. In thin applications, it can be dry in less than 90 seconds.

Q: Can Zombie Skin be used to make molds?

A: Yes, however; “mold making latex” is a more more cost effective material for making molds.
