Fullers Earth: Methods of Application

A little goes a long way! Apply using a powder duster, rag, or by putting the dust into panty hose and tying it off (the small holes will allow the dust to pass through as you wipe the hose across the garment). Or, mix some dust with a little water and brush it on. Put a tablespoon of fullers earth in a large spray bottle and spray it on, then dry with a hair dryer to see the result. Nothing else works like fullers earth for getting into the cracks and seams of your garment for that authentic beat-to-hell, desert-aged look.

This dust is not permanent and will gradually come off with wear or with washing. To help keep it on, seal with matte clear spray paint, acrylic sealer, hair spray or leather/fabric protector spray. Apply it along with dark paint and sealant to create permanent grungy low-lights and highlights on your garment.

Fullers Earth: Uses

In addition to adding cosmetic details to your prop or costume, fullers earth has excellent oil-drawing properties. It was originally used to pull natural oils out of new wool garments. It can be used to clean up engine oil spills.

Fuller's earth also has alternative uses such as face packs for skin health.
