Item #: SCP-328
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: The various elements of SCP-328 are to be kept inside plastic bags at all time when not in use. They cannot be manipulated without gloves, and all stained material must be destroyed by fire at the end of the experiment. Any suspicious stain must be immediately reported to a Level 3 personnel.
Description: SCP-328 is a twelve color box of unbranded face paint in the form of crayon-shaped sticks that appear to have seen little use. They are normally kept inside a metallic box. There is no indication as to who the maker is.
Upon application the first characteristics of SCP-328 is its apparent permanence: unless wiped off within 1m 44s, it will become permanent, like a tattoo. Multiple layers of SCP-328 appear to "replace" each others through an unexplained process, and do not cause any thickening of the makeup layer.
The second characteristics does not appear until several days to several weeks (time varies on a personal basis, and no variable has yet been found to correlate with this). After that period of time, the covered skin and flesh's physical characteristics will be profoundly altered, in some cases causing major deformities, injuries (either to the victim or others), and eventually death. No mean of stopping of healing this transformation has been found yet short of excising the affected area completely (which typically mean down to the bone). Although there may be stiffness, pain and crackling where the affected area meet unaffected one, the subjects do not report pain in the affected area itself.
Each color has a different effect:
- red: All flesh is slowly burned off by inextinguishable flames.
- pale blue: Flesh is frozen as if it had been submerged in liquid nitrogen.
- dark blue: Subjects report [DATA EXPUNGED]
- yellow: [DATA EXPUNGED]
- orange: the flesh is turned into permanent flames.
- pale green: The flesh is replaced by a plant growth, starting with lichens, then mosses and higher plants.
- dark green: Skin becomes covered in [DATA EXPUNGED] warts that [DATA EXPUNGED]
- violet: [DATA EXPUNGED]
- brown: Flesh dries out and peels away in large (several cm) flakes,
- black: Subjects grow fur of apparently random nature; one patch may be buffalo hair, and another giraffe.
- white: The flesh is replaced by a form of "solid light" emitting approximately 3000 lm/cm2
- gray: The flesh turns liquid and "melts off".
