and why a real blade? you can unsharpen it by a simple piece of stone or another metal, isn't using the sharpened one a little bit stupid?

I remember coming across this last year and ended up using it for Halloween. It was a blast to do and came out great. My only problem is that I would often forget I had bubblegum on me and accidentally touch it all. I was a mess by the end of the night. It can also be a tad bit time consuming, so it can look great with some planning. The one I did on my brother's neck was MUCH more dramatic (no pics unfortunately) than my random ones. I'd do it again if I didn't have to take care of a newborn this year. My little baby boy is due in October. ^_^

Oh, and I used Hubba Bubba with the cheap make-up from a halloween store. A skin tone, black, brown, and red worked fine.

you are a genius!

First, I'd probably chew it to mold it, then flatten out the side that touches your skin. Last, I would use Spirit Gum to attach it for a while. BTW nice instructable.

Do you chew it first or manipulate it with your fingers?

By the way, I think this is really clever and cool! I'm wanting to try it, but I want to make sure I get it right and I want it to stay in place for the whole evening!

lostinoz (author)2008-10-07

Did you mix the makeup in with the gum first? And how'd you get it to stay in place?

Why does it have to be sugar free gum?

csalmeron36 (author)2008-07-31

How do you get the gum to get that form and make flexible like that.

loup226 (author)pyro132007-11-29

my english is bad.the stuff the women apply on face what is the name ?

Are you thinking of foundation?

loup226 (author)Weissensteinburg2007-11-29

i supposed is that. Thanks

pyelitegamerro76 (author)loup2262007-11-29

or blush

I was thinking that, but blush is a redder color, so it wouldn't blend in with your skin color.

well... after a gash or even a scratch your skin is a little reddish from irritation right?

but the stuff it showed him using wasn't red. I think blush would be a good thing to use on top of it all though!

That is so cool. Its a lot cheaper for me,and fx wax is not something everyone knows where to get.
