On the search for the perfect halloween costume I have come up with (after adapting other instructables) a great way to make a chopped of finger effect using bubble gum and a bit of make up/chalk pastels! Hurrah!
Step 1: You Will Need:
1-2 sticks of chewing gum (I used Juicy Fruit)
a selection of chalk pastels (but you could use make up)
some fake blood (I used a poster paint/jam mix)
Step 2: Prepare Gum
Basically you chew the gum, fully bend over your finger at the knuckle, apply the gum to the knuckle and smoothen down the sides.
Step 3: Apply Chalk/Make Up
This is mostly trial and error. Try lots of combinations and make sure you add it to the finger too.
Step 4: Rate and Comment
Please rate and comment people - this is my second instructable and I have entered it into the halloween contest so constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.
