Introduction: How to Make a Burn Victim
This was my first attempt at making a burn victim. A lot easier to make than one thinks.
Step 1: Items List
You will need the following items:
1 five foot plastic skeleton, the kind you can get at any halloween store for 20.00.
Spray paint...black and red. Two cans each will be plenty.
2 cans big gap filler foam, I used Great stuff.
Rubber gloves and lots of them. DO NOT ATTEMPT WITHOUT THE GLOVES.
Wire to attach it something later (not pictured)
Step 2: Lay Out Your Victim
I placed mine on a protected surface using left over plasic carpet runner.
Step 3: Teeth or No Teeth
I wanted the teeth to show so I simply taped over the mouth.
Step 4: Apply the Foam
With gloved hands, spray the gap filler all over. Rub or pat it down into the crevises. Don't worry it will bulk up. Be careful not to get this stuff on your clothes, it will not come off. Wear something old.
Step 5: The Back
When you have completely covered the front and it has dried, flip your victim over to do the same on the back.
After it has completely dried, cover with the black spray paint....do this on both sides. Let dry and then in various places spray with the red. If you feel you have to much of one color the simple fix is to hit it with the other color to cover. You can NOT go wrong with this.
Step 7: The Finished Product
Let dry overnight, remove the tape from the mouth then place your victim in the yard. I chose to attach it to a piece of picket fence that I had with wire. I then tied it to a tree so he would be upright. I have seen these placed in yards laying down. How you place your victim is now up to you. Have fun.
