The image above should be the final product after you follow the instructions. Please refer to the video in each step.

You will need:

- Hubba Bubba Gum tape

- Sand Paper

- Mirror

- Party Peanuts

- Gouache Paint (only primary colors needed)

- Matte Medium

- Two hard pieces of plastic (like tupperware,plexiglass, whatever you have as long as it's not heavy.)

Step 1: Chew a Lot of Gum

- Chew as much gum as you think you'll need for the size of mouth that you're making.

- Mold the gum into the shape of gums.

- Put the sculpted gum on the Plexi/Tupperware.

Step 2: Making Teeth and Putting Them in Place

- Take some sand paper and sand the peanuts into the desired shape. Use a mirror to look at your own choppers to see what the best size and shape is.

- Place the teeth into the gums taking time to make them as crooked as you like.

- Push little bits of gum around the teeth creating divots giving a realistic effect.

Step 3: Painting

- Get your gouache out and a surface to use as a pallet along with your matte medium.

- Find an image on the internet of some tabasco stained teeth to use for reference.

- Mix some brown and gray and red and dilute the colors as necessary with matte medium.

- You'll want to get the most condensed amount of color near the gums and other crevices between the teeth to achieve a 3 dimensional effect. Making sure to use subtle amounts.

- Paint a light coat of red watered down with matte medium on the gums giving a vain like appearance.

- Once you're done painting let it dry overnight!

YOU'RE DONE!
