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).

-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.

I did this.and it was awesome my snicker licker of a sister cried!lol!
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?
<p>The only possible problem with putty is that it's easier to smear- the gel tends to last longer and allows for some flexibility.</p>
Can I add fake blood to the paint mixture? Because the paint doesnt look like dried bllod. Extremly good job tho.
LOVE IT! And looks really easy.
Disgusting! Absolutely wonderful!

I should have seen this instructable earlier as I did this the painful way yesterday... Oh, yeah- butcher knifes hurt like HELL!!!!!!!!!!!
