Instructables
Hello! You know what this is about, no doubt, so read on and enjoy the steps and end result! I'm happy to answer any questions or take any advice.


The bruises and extra grime are optional, but help add to the over-all look. It's easy to make, has a relatively low cost, and would make a great addition to a Halloween zombie costume. (As opposed to the zombie costume you wear when you go out for lunch or to the zoo).


Materials:
-Yellow, purple, brown, and black acrylic paint
-Fake blood
-f/x flesh gel
-A bowl of hot water
-A threaded needle
-A couple cotton balls
-A sharpened pencil

Step 1: Making the Base

-Follow the directions on the flesh gel bottle by placing the bottle in hot water so that it turns to liquid.

-Pour some of the gel onto the area you wish to work on. Use your fingers to form the type of line in the picture below before the gel dries.

- Cut a line through the middle of the gel with the tip of a pencil as it is starting to thicken.



Step 2: Adding the Blood

-Dip the tip of the pencil in the fake blood, and trace the line you just scraped out.

-Mix the paints together, and add mostly black. The finished color should look like dried blood.

- Dip the cotton ball into the paint and lightly dab it on your foot, mostly around the edges of the cut.

-Of course, if you like the way the open cut looks, you can always skip adding the stitches.

I have a question. I don't have the gel, but I have some putty that is supposed to look like scar tissue. Will that work the same or do I need the gel?
Can I add fake blood to the paint mixture? Because the paint doesnt look like dried bllod. Extremly good job tho.

I should have seen this instructable earlier as I did this the painful way yesterday... Oh, yeah- butcher knifes hurt like HELL!!!!!!!!!!!
Dropped the knife?
no...
What happened? I thought you meant you got stitches from the butcher knife in some way...
Well, I thought it wouldn't hurt at first, but...I learned my lesson. At least it looked real.
So no butcher story? :(
