Cenobite Palette is a collection of colors used in a Monsterpalooza demo. Makeup created as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Clive Barker’s The Hellbound Heart and Hellraiser. This was a collaboration with Clive Barker and makeup artists Cris Alex and Stephen Imhoff. At the time Barker wanted to reimagine the iconic character as an older version. Also stripping the character of the leather clad costume for a more priest like appearance. Cenobite Palette collection is an expansion on the original colors for the character. Containing more shading tones to show age and wear.

All colors can be applied with a brush, sponge or mascara wand.  As always you can use the color as is. Also can be mix with any other Skin Illustrator colors. Allowing you to create your own unique blend of colors. Therefore giving you endless possibilities.

You must use Skin Illustrator Activator,  Skin Illustrator Slow Activator,  or 99% alcohol. While activating and using the colors.

Do not use any other solvents. For example 70% alcohol, MEK, acetone or water. These will result improper activation or damage to the product.

Due to the high pigment content and lack of unnecessary fillers in the Skin Illustrator color system, cracks, bubbles and any shrunken appearance that may occur in some dried color cells does not affect the quality or performance of the product in any way.
