The purpose of this instructable is to demonstrate extensive burn makeup using latex layering and make-up techniques with products that are reasonably cheap and easily attainable. There are four types of burn that can be re-created using the following process which are chemical, solar, electrical and thermal which is the one I have chosen to demonstrate in this instructable.
Burn effects can be achieved by using gelatine mixtures that you can see in my other instructables
( http://www.instructables.com/id/Infected-gelatine-zombie-bite/ ) and ( http://www.instructables.com/id/Gelatine-prosthetic-application/ ) , layering on various materials, just makeup 3D effects and with ready made of self sculpted prosthetics which can be directly applied and removed to be re-used.
This make-up effectis a reasonably low cost application. The entire cost was approximately 2 Euros (when you have your initial resources already and not including the contact lenses).
As you are using latex you must check that you are not allergic to rubber latex as you will be using it extensively around the edges of the bald cap and over the entire face but still do all the usual tests with the materials to check for allergies prior to application.
The whole process takes about an 2.5 hours not including the initial set-up and clear up processes...but you can watch it in 2.5 minutes

The most important part of any prosthetic is to ensure you have thin edges for effective blending to the skin therefore make sure you don't rush ahead and start applying colour too early or the seams will show through, especially as you will be using a shiny look with the wet blood.
