How do Scarecrow Vampire Fangs work?
The kit is all-inclusive, you can fit your fangs on-the-spot wherever you have a mirror. Just mix the liquid & powder customizing material together, put it inside the fang cap, push it up over your own tooth & hold for 5 minutes. The material then forms a permanent, rigid, snap-fitting mold of your tooth inside the fang for a tight, "clip-on fit". This one-time fitting process means the fangs can be taken off and put back on for years of use. All "deluxe" fangs work the same way, refer to the Retractable Fangs tab for more information on how those work. Both fang customizing styles have a quick and easy-to-follow tutorial you can watch on our demo page.
Are Scarecrow Fangs reusable?
Yes, completely. You only have to customize them once , then, they are easy to snap on andoff for years. There is enough customizing material inside each kit for several applications in the event you want to fit one or both fangs better when you are first customizing them, but, once you're done, they are completely reusable without any additional adhesives.
Can I recustomize my fangs?
If for any reason, you want to redo the mold, you can purchase a refill kit from our shop page. You can pry the old molding material out of the fang caps with tweezers. It may help to put the fangs in really hot water for a few minutes then look for any areas of where the mold may be loose from the fang cap. You can try pinching the front and back of the tooth cap together to help the separation along. Then, try using tweezers or needle nose pliers to grab any loose edges and pull it out.
Can I eat & drink with my fangs in?
We do not suggest that you do because we do not want you to swallow your fangs. Most foods and drinks won't harm the fangs, although some fake blood and red wine could discolor them.
Can I bite someone with my fangs?
NO!!! No. Absolutely not. Bad idea. Biting someone is illegal and it's also mean and gross. SC Fangs are for "theatrical" use only which means: pretend. Periodt.
The color of the mold inside the fangs yellowed over time, is that a problem?
No. Depending on the acidity level of your saliva, the mold may change color over time. If it is the mold in the back part and doesn't show, that should not be a problem, and should not require re-customizing since the color of the molding material doesn't change its strength or tenacity. If it is molding that shows around the front of the fang, go ahead and look at the tutorial video on our YouTube Channel (Custom Scarecrow Fangs) and notice when Dave in the video fits his fangs, he tucks the material down and behind while it's still soft, as it's setting up. You may want to try that approach as you customize to prevent/minimize any material on the front, then, if it yellows, it won't show any way. The mold should still work fine and be strong regardless of the color.
I kept my fangs in too long after customizing and can't get them off!
In over 27 years of making fangs, not a single person that we know of has ever not been able to get the fangs off, even when they have been left on immediately after customizing for over 24 hours - but we don't suggest you do that. Although the fang caps and molding material are not harmed by hot (or cold) liquids, a hot liquid held in the mouth for a period of time can soften the mold very slightly, temporarily. We suggest that you make a cup of hot tea (as hot as you can stand it without burning your tongue) and swish it around inside your mouth over the fangs for 5-10 minutes while simultaneously wiggling the fang caps to get them loose. That will usually do the trick.
