Step 8: Other applications

If you are being pursued by zombies and you need to get away, this effect is pretty fast, so you can do it in a hurry.

First make some slashes on your face and neck.

Color to look fairly realistic. Use the yellow for a litle bruising/swelling effect if you like.

Add some sticky blood (remember to get the clothes too), and the proper expression and posture, and blend right in with the hoardes until you can make your getaway.
No offense, but there are many ways to tell its fake: 1.no running blood, 2. clean razor, 3. who just randomly cuts there hand. And I know what you're thinking, I know its a fake gash.
the fact that theres no blood just makes it sicker.
Blood doesn't always pour down immediately. I mean, it does that if you cut major veins like your jugular, but I've cut myself like that [not on purpose, I'm accident prone] and it took a second for blood to actually trickle from the wound.
of course it is, it's an instructable on how to make fake cuts<br />
i kno im&nbsp; just saying<br /> <br />
&nbsp;... it's for halloween or something. Not a movie.&nbsp;
yah i kno<br />
This WAS an effect for a movie. made the director (Sunrise Tippeconnie) throw up when we did it, ha ha.<br />
Chuck norris would<br />
check out the last picture in step 6 for blood sticking to the palette knife. The picture in the intro was actually taken on set and the prop master had already cleaned up and put away the blade, so I had to go fetch it. I had already put away the fake blood and didn't want to get it out again, and also didn't want to dribble it all over the actress's hand since it tends to stain. When we shot the scene, the blood ran right down the edge of the blade and dripped off the end. That worked because the blade had been scuffed up with a bench grinder and the scratches provided a surface for the blood to stick to. As to who just randomly cuts their hand -- if you've ever been in grad school, you'd understand this perfectly! Hands, legs (thighs in particular)... less destructive people might find self-inflicted tattoos a more relaxing past time. Anything to relieve the stress, really.
Nothing personal, I just like to contradict people. 1. What if it's an old wound? 2. Same thing. 3. Emos.
who cares, it would be a good prank, you have to agree with that
I do.
told ya
i like the first pic. (shudder)
What is the &quot;Witch Hazel or Other Oil-Free Toner&quot; for?
To clean the skin. See the second photo on step 1.
You may now join the wolf pack. +1 if you got that.<br><br>Anyway, this is really convincing. Whats the baby powder for? Is it to match the skin a little better?
I believe it sets the makeup so it doesn't smear.
actually, it keeps the latex from sticking to itself.
Preaty awsome.
It looks like a big blister<br>
that does look positively painful. good job!
&nbsp;I'm doing this for haloween. It's so cool!
on a technical note:<br /> <br /> most zombies are slow movers, you can easily get away from a crowd that large, if you have your local gun store, you can just try to survive for as long as possible (or until the army or ZEMA arrives) and if you blend in, you'll probably get blown up, shot in a random place by another survivor, cry out in pain, and get eaten alive anyway. plus the effect would need at least 2 people, or a mirror, and it would take at least 10 minutes, enough time for brain dead zombies to find you and storm you and eat your bbbbbbbbbrrrrrraaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnzzzzzzzzzzzzz (i doubt you can do that running, just saying)<br /> <br /> and on a second note, blending in will probably get you killed about the same rate as just staying low and getting out of the quarantine zone as fast as possible.<br /> <br /> anyway, good effect, just not that good against zombies<br />
Wow, I really appreciate these tips. We're doing a project in my photography class involving wounds, it'll be interesting to see what people have to say when I whip out some bubblegum and fake blood and turn it into a cut. Thanks, it looks really great. I'll send you the results of the shoot once we're done, alright?
put it on your wrist and watch how many people look at you wierd.
Hello 13 year old... Your secret is safe for me... just put a gash on your wrist...

heres is a little tip, throw some yellow in there to represent fat cells. and darken the blood up some, artery blood is red. venous blood is dark.
The sad thing is that I bought a latex slashed wrist yesterday
