get the blue out and u get an awesome effect brilliant idea
I did something along these lines with Gum a couple of years ago, but did a take the whole finger off look. I prefer yours to be honest, as it is much easier to make the rest of the finger look still attached than it is to try and hide it. Anyway, here is the instructable I made a couple of years ago, I will certainly be rocking the severed finger look this Halloween!

That's definitely a cheap way of doing the cut off finger effect, i bought the special effects wax for it. Only came across this website, its brilliant.
In all the places I've seen this tut, there are 2 questions that are always asked, but never answered.
1- What brand/flavor bubble gum are you using?
2- Pre-chewed or un-chewed?

Where do you buy or get the fake blood
It says in the instructable that its corn syrup and red dye
adding chocolate syrup helps
 Halloween stores.

I tried this and it didnt work because my friend said the gum looked like a gigantic wart and that gave the trick away
i know a faster way ; D
this is totally awesome! 5 stars! i also subscribed. have merry christmas and thanks for the great ideas! my dad's going to do this so he can show the guys at work that he cut off his finger and make them freak out. THANKS SO MUCH! i appreciate your time to make this.
great idea but why the blue?
Pro effects artists use dark colors, blue, brown and black, to give lacerations the illusion of being deeper than they are. Also, darker colors disguises the fact that details that should be there, aren't. (Bone, ligaments etc.) Dark colors give the visual impression of shadow, so we expect to see less therefore we "see" more.
If you look at the underside of your wrist, the veins will look blue, not red. This is because the blood inside your body is under oxygenated, once it gives its oxygen to what ever part of you body needs it. Since the blue is under the blood, it will look as if the veins still inside your finger that have not been cut are still working properly, as well as give the area around it a bruised look.
yeah but- as soon as you cut yourself- it turns bright red. I wouldn't use dark colors. Have you ever cut yourself deeply? It doesn't look blue in there. It's all bright red, with some pretty yellow fat cells if you cut deep enough. :)
In humans and other hemoglobin-using creatures, oxygenated blood is bright red. This is due to oxygenated iron in the red blood cells. Deoxygenated blood is a darker shade of red, which can be seen during blood donation and when venous blood samples are taken. However, due to an optical effect caused by the way in which light penetrates through the skin, veins typically appear blue in color. This has led to a common misconception that venous blood is blue before it is exposed to air. Another reason for this misconception is that medical charts always show venous blood as blue in order to distinguish it from arterial blood which is depicted as red on the same chart.

The question I want answered is:
Why is blood spelled with two o's??
oh ok that makes since

That looks more like scar wax / nose putty than bubble gum.
