These entrails can be used over and over again even though their not flexible like the real thing.
This project only takes about two days to make and costs about $6 from Home Depot/Lowes and $6 from Michaels.
Step 1: Materials
These materials can be found at Michaels, Lowes, and around the house-
-Great Stuff Expanding Foam ($3.86)
-Gloss Clear Coat (around 4-5 dollars)
-Cherry Red, Real Red Gloss, and Alizarin Crimson Acrylic Paints. (or any reds ranging from light to dark)
-Cup of Water
Step 2: Making the Guts
Let the entrails dry overnight.
Then carefully remove the guts from the wax paper once they dry.
(Note: I was spraying the foam in 113 degree weather and it was not setting. It was almost like soup. So a tip to set the shape you want quickly is to fill a spray bottle with water and mist the water onto the foam.)
Step 3: Painting and Finishing
Start by using the Real Red Gloss acrylic paint . Paint the entire piece of foam with this paint. Then switch to Cherry Red acrylic paint and only paint little tiny areas in order to create some contrast to the piece. Sometimes I use this darker paint in the cracks and crevasses to make the guts "pop".
The darkest red (Alizarin Crimson acrylic paint) is for blood splatter. I use the straw in order to create the blood splatter. A better way to have done this is with an airbrush, but I couldn't find where mine was.
In order to create the blood splatter with a straw, you need to use your breath. You suck up a little paint into the straw and then blow it back out until theres very little left in the straw. Then blow the rest of the paint onto the workpiece so that its doesn't glob in only one spot.
The last step is to apply the clear coat and let dry.
