This I'ble will show you how to create wound FX, at home on the cheap. With only a few items from around the average home, we shall try to accomplish some authentic looking last minute effects for our Halloween ensemble.

This was created in under 45min, done 1 handed obviously. That includes picture time also.

This was applied on my forearm, although I have used this method to do a full chest wound also. The technique can be used to achieve, many types of wounds.

Step 1: What you will need

Like the title says, this I'ble was done for nothing, from things around an average home. If you do not have one of these items, they should not amount to much to purchase.

~ Toilet paper- Full role

~ Plain flour- 4 Tsp

~ Jam- Blackcurrent or strawberry (no we are not baking a cake. )

~ Tomatoe sauce

~ Sharpie- Black/red

~ Foundation- This one might be a bit tricky, we may have to borrow some from your Mum or Girlfriend.  Ladies your in luck, you may perhaps have some already. This is not strictly needed, yet will take your wound from looking almost fake to looking real.

~ Hair dryer- Makes things 10 times quicker
so mother <a rel="nofollow">!@#$in</a> awesome
Thankyou, thankyou. :)
This was amazing i did it last year and i'm going to do again this year!!
Good to see your back again! lol <br>Must have been the goods! ;)
&nbsp;WOUND WENT BRILLIANTLY! Next year im thiking of pehaps ribs?!
My avatar was about 30min work with the same technique, couple of chicken bones stickin' out of it and you would be set. :)&nbsp;
Its so gross its amazing!
OMG looks so reel AHH dirt
Neat - but ewwww....
SCARY! so realistic, welldone:)
thank you so much for this tutorial. I made a wound for a zombie walk some days ago and although it was hot, it stick well to my arm<br><br>http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc5/deaddreamer001/livejournal/CIMG7733.jpg
that was amazing!
worked amazingly, did this with some bones stickin out, freaked my mom out!!!!!!!!!!
Had some fun :D. Doesn't hold up too well once it gets down below freezing, however...
Freaking Badass man!
I tried this today and it was really fun! thanks
I think I'll just lean against a tree with these lacerations all over and torn up clothes with a chain saw laying next to me. Maybe a sign saying &quot;Tie your shoes&quot; or something?
I personally would use something other than food products. I used red, brown, and a bit of olivine green paint to get the look I wanted. The green was used to give it a bit of &quot;skin gone moldy&quot; and it worked great.
Ooh that cool you do that urself? :)?
I have found that, if you can make it stick, and if you wish for the &quot;gore&quot; to be edible, one might substitute shredded coconut for the toilet paper.<br><br>:) I used coconut for a demonstrative speech on my campus, and didn't want to use anything inedible... just in case.
I personally find that acrylic paint does wonders for this step. It's super-mega-cheap, dries quickly, and is completely non-toxic and washable.
it looks awsome!!! i think i will try it in october for halloween <br>
holy crap thats amazing, i am defiantly doin this for halloween
Give it a go! hell easy, i'll be using it this year no doubt. :)
i wasnt planning on tricker treating but after this i think i will
what temp?
As we covered the runway debut of the <a href="http://www.chanels.cc/" rel="nofollow"><b>Chanel Handbags</b></a> Summer 2010, reviews were mixed by various of people. My favorite is the watercolored Classic Chanel Flap Bag, which looks utterly elegant with a variety of summer wardrobe options. As for the <a href="http://www.chanels.cc/chanel-accessories-c-115.html" rel="nofollow"><b>Chanel Purses</b></a> that dot the collection, they&rsquo;re very taste-specific, but I could see some of the more subdued version working quite well with summery white linen or various bright colors for contrast. From <a href="http://www.chanels.cc/" rel="nofollow"><b>Chanel Outlet</b></a>.
As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.
instead of usin&nbsp; glue i would use petroleum jelly to make it stick. lol<br /> <br />
I didn't have any petroleum jelly. ;P&nbsp;
this is absolute genius! Not everyone can afford to only use a bit of latex when they come in $16 liter bottles<br />
Thanks!! Not only do many people not have the money, in Australia where I am, Latex is not all that available. Even halloween shops (1 in my area) don't have it.&nbsp;
great tutorial man. love the simplicity of it.&nbsp; will have to wait until i need i week off from work, maybe use a small version on a finger... good stuff.<br />
Thanks for your comment.... remember you only need a few minutes to do a single finger wound. Mine shown would only take 1/2 an hour... try it out tonight.&nbsp;
&nbsp;I have one&nbsp;question, &nbsp;would it be possible to use a gel deodorant&nbsp;instead&nbsp;of the flour water mix?<br />
Hmmmm, I don't think so. &nbsp;The idea is to paper-mache your are... It may work though, give it a go.&nbsp;
&nbsp;I tried it. I t was stick, but not sticky enough, and stupid me forgot that deo dries.
Aagh!!!<br /> Looks pretty real man!!<br /> and also very painfully.<br /> ^^<br />
LoL Thanks!!&nbsp;
&nbsp;That looks NAsssssssssssssssssTY!&nbsp;in a really cool way of course...
&nbsp;How well does it hold onto the skin? IDK why but to me it seems like it would come off with relatively minor force. Like bumping my hip while walking.&nbsp;
&nbsp;Also forgot to say it still looks amazing!
PVA glue works great as a binding agent for many types of materials. They even use it, to make concrete stick to concrete. It also sets hard. Once it is set you are free to flex, knock it, bump it, whatever you feel like... Infact the effect at the end of the night, when it does finally start coming up at the edges, is also hideous.<br /> <br /> <br />
I&nbsp;have no idea what kind of wound that looks like.<br />
Septic laceration maybe?&nbsp;
It look amazing! great ible<br /> <br /> Thanks<br />
Thanks!! Not a bad effect for the last minute.&nbsp;
Great instructable, easy instructions and scary-good pictures. Im not into the whole zombie/creepy effects&nbsp;craze and&nbsp;I&nbsp;already have a costume, but maybe Ill try this on an unsuspecting victim... &gt;:D <br /> <br /> A few questions though -what kind of glue did you use, and how much is needed? Also, does the glue like, pull the hair off your arm or irriate it? Does the jam soak into the TP?<br /> <br /> Thanks!&nbsp;<br /> -xD
