Halloween How-To- Zipper face

I have seen this makeup effect a few times and figured I would give it a go. It's very easy to do.
You will need:
Liquid Latex
Various grease paints (Red and black and flesh tone)
Foundation and setting powder (Not required but helps for blending)
Fake blood (Preferably gel blood, I didn't have any and used a more liquid-y blood.
and of course a zipper, Preferably one with metal teeth and a white or khaki color fabric (Easier to blend than darker colored ones)

Very very cool that rocks!
Fantastic! You just gave me an amazing idea for a costume! I hope it works out as well as yours! Nice job blending the zipper in with the skin.
So thats how you do it, i saw a few people doing this and i wondered if it was done with a plain old zip, thanks, just wish i had this in time for the zombie walk on Sat!!!
Yes ma'm, just done with a regular old zipper! Lucky me since I sew, I have tons sitting around. I did this effect across my mouth one night and one First place in a costume contest, and did it as shown in the video another night, and got "scariest costume" :0)
Love this! Nice work! Have a super day!<br>Sunshiine
