Here is a quick and easy guide to applying, painting and removing one of my gelatin bite wounds.
The kits are on sale now on Etsy and eBay ->
Each kit comes complete with 3 different bites, 20ml latex, 15ml gelatin blender & 30ml gel blood. I also include 3 baby buds & 2 small packets of make-up (more than enough to colour the bites). For this application you will need a sponge (house hold is fine but a make-up sponge works better) and a small paint brush.
Step 1: Step 1/ Preparing the Appliances
If you are applying them on yourself and you want a neck or face bite I've found it's a lot easier if you colour the bite first before you stick it on your skin (just skip ahead to Step 7/ Painting the appliance then come back when your done)...
Step 2: Step 2/ Latex
Start by sponging latex over the area you want the appliance to be and on the back of the appliance too...
Step 3: Step 3/ Stick It On
Step 4: Step 4/ Smooth Down the Edges
Try to resist the urge to use a hair dryer, you might melt the gelatin.
Step 5: Step 5/ Blender
You may find the edges go white at this point. Just leave it to dry for a few minutes until they go clear again.
Step 6: Step 6/ Seal
If you are intending to wear them for a long time I would sponge over a couple of layers to ensure it is completely sealed.
Step 7: Step 7/ Painting the Appliance
After it's dry if you want to get rid of the shine dust over it with a little baby powder.
Step 8: Step 8/ Gel Blood
Step 9: Step 9/ Don't Lick It!
...when you've finished your zombie fun wash everything off with soap and water. A wash cloth or face wipe will help to get the appliances off.
