Step 1: Getting the Supplies

For this project you are going to need the following supplies:

Supplies
  • Liquid Latex - $11 for a 8oz bottle.
  • Stage Blood - $2 for a 1oz bottle.
  • Basic Make-Up Kit - Should include foundation, basic creme pallet of at least 4 colors, setting powder and applicators.
  • Toilet Paper
The most common place to find these out of the Halloween season is at a costume shop or online, especially for the liquid latex and stage blood. The make-up can be purchased at any retailer that carries make-up... usually for under $10. As for the toilet paper, that's practically free... and if don't have any at home, pocket a square next time you use the public restroom.

This year you gotta get some white makeup in there so that you can "see" the bones... now that'd really freak some ppl out
Take a chicken bone and crack/splinter it and inbed it into the latex
WOW! thats insane :D
Yeah right
That is Awesome, man. Especialy for a first try. My first attempt was nowhere near as cool. Congradulations. I think you've found your special talent.
Lol, I can FEEL the pain of taking that off right now. (Note, the hair)
dude thats really cool

My first attempt at any kind of Halloween makeup or fx. The inside moves as I flex my forearm, giving it a really gruesome appearance.

That will give a 3 year old nightmares. It makes me think, "gosh, I really need to practice now that i have liquid latex, fake blood, and spirit gum."
man is that real sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo grooooooooooos and also those bones look real to ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww goooooooodddddddddddddddddddddd how did you even do that ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww groooooooooooooooooooooooooosssssssssssss gooooooooooooooooooooooodddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd.!
haha thanks! i used the bones from chicken wings btw
Aww man... now I'm hungry...
how the hell did you get the bones to not stick out like a bump?
well i made the basic circular wound shape on my hand and then took chicken wing bones (boiled the meat off), cut the ends off, and added a little more liquid latex to the ends to connect the bones the to wound edge and a little on the underside to hold them into place then did the basic paint application and added the fake blood :D

**and a little tip** dont cover the ends of the bones evenly and also try to apply thick areas of liquid latex over the central area of the bones... that way it will look like its less connected solely around the edge of the wound and it will look less uniform and more like the top of your hand was ripped off (which is the effect i was goin for here)

ENJOY!
wow, yeah, NICE. but im glad i didnt meet you trick-or-treating, i probly wouldve screamed my head off...lol :)

It is actually nauseatingly realistic!
next up... compound fractures! I'd love to see an 'ible on making fake compound fractures.
me too
not nice
well on halloween i made my face white with makeup, then stuck this on the side of my face. it, along with all the weird noises i would make when walking by people, made me look like a zombie. After wards we went to welcome south resturant to eat and i took it off in the bathroom. it was on the table wrapped in some napkins so it would dry, but it still had some blood on it. when the waiter came, i wasnt paying attention and she picked it up, looked at it kind of funny, then threw it in the trash : ( oh well, ill just make another.. lol
no im seriouse dude llol
hahahha

You inspired me, to attempt something similar this year. I only had PVA wood glue and toilet paper on hand. Turned out alright though.
