A new tutorial for the zipper face look, This time with a voiceover explaining how I did everything. Enjoy!
You will need:
A metal zipper
liquid latex or spirit gum
red and black cream or grease paints
purple and yellow cream or grease paints and/or eyeshadow
blood gel or fake blood
clear or red lipgloss to add shine
Click this link if you want to the older look I did for this last year, it's a speed-torial, and in this one I left the fabric on, rather then cutting it off.

Visually the best tutorial I have seen n this subject.

The audio however I found the lack of sound editing annoying.

The constant burst of sound when the music started was startling.

This is only the second time I have ever said something negative on this site.

If you ever get to the point of making the sound work better [I suggest audacity], then you should have great videos that everyone will enjoy :)

Great video never the less. Just couldn't listen to it sadly.

very realistic and scary....nixely done..persinally i didnt like coz you spoiled such beautiful face...hihi

This is really creepy.. Nice work! :)

how much is liquid lattex.

It depends, it's about $4 for a little bottle, which is really all you need for this, about $14 for a 16oz bottle. I personally think it's a bit pricey, you can always use spirit gum to attach the zipper to your face as well, it's less expensive, but you need to be very very careful using it near your eyes, since the skin around your eyes is so sensitive. And before you use the liquid latex make sure you test a swatch on either the inside of your elbow, or your wrist or something first to make sure you don't have a reaction to it, since so many people do have a latex allergy. If you aren't allergic to it however, it's harmless.

One of the classiest (?) zipper fx I've seen. Nice :)

Very nice, thanks!
