The third available color version actually simulates an unnatural appearance: an “old-oil effect”. This perfectly simulates oil-smeared skin. Fresh Scratch is best applied with a stipple sponge or application spatula in typically effectively forms, and then allowed to dry. During the drying phase, the preparation should not be touched, since this will produce matte spots. After drying, Fresh Scratch will not stain upon contact. It can be completely removed from the skin with generous application of soap and warm water.
