Mix equal parts A & B of the silicone jars (DO NOT CROSS CONTAMINATE! This will activate the whole jar and make it useless)

Place palette knife on skin at a 20 degree angle and slowly drag across skin. Be gentle, you can cut the skin making a far more realistic slash.

Do this twice, flipping the knife 180 degrees, This will make a valley for the makeup to sit in.

Add more ridges and valleys to make more slashes on the skin.

Step 5: Tear open the face

Grab a corner of the latex mold and slowly pull away. Be careful to not tear it off.
If any patches appear add latex and toilet paper to fix.

First get your FX palette and add Black, Maroon, Purple, and Red to the metal palette.
(mixing colors is all experimenting)

Here is the basic idea though:

Red in the middle.
Maroon around the Red.
Black as the border.
