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
-f/x flesh gel
-A bowl of hot water
-A threaded needle
-A couple cotton balls
-A sharpened pencil
Step 1: Making the Base
-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
-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.
