About: I create and teach makeup effects and prosthetics for a living. I love The B52's, good sarcasm and boring things like history, science and Radio 4.

This video shows you how I created a realistic 'bleeding blade' to simulate skin cutting for a TV show I did a few weeks back.

There was no time or budget to make a fake chest, and I was not sure where the camera would be so I had to make it work from every angle, make it safe and make it quick. I recreate the process for you here.
