Step 1: Supplies

You will need:
-Elmers glue
-paint brush
-cheap foundation
-red and black acrylic paint
-fake blood

Step 2: Wounding Yourself

Squirt some glue onto the area where your " wound " will be, and then spread it around with the paint brush. Once you have evenly spread the glue take your tissue and put it on the glue. Wait about 15 minutes and then rip off the extra tissue paper. Apply more glue on the tissue and then cut it down the middle with a dull knife or your finger nail. Pull the edge of the cut back to widen the wound and then pull up the edges to create a pealing look to it.

Step 3: Drying and Painting

To dry the wound just use a hair dryer on 'cool' setting. Once you have mostly dried the glue apply some foundation to it to make it look like your skin color. After you let the foundation set you need to paint the inside of the wound with a mix of red and black paints. Its ok if you make the mix dark because you will be adding blood to it in the next step. Smear a small amount of the mixture around the outside of the cut too. Just look at the pictures below to see what I mean.

Step 4: Blood

The easiest step of all... adding blood. This part is up to you.
