Step 1: Make the Skin Putty

The skin putty is made out of Vaseline and flour
The steps to make it are
1.grab a plastic spoon you gathered earlier scoop up some flour, it should be overflowing
2. Scoop some Vaseline with the other spoon make sure it fills the spoon but no More and no less.
THIS IS WHERE IT GETS CONFUSING
3.with the back of the spoon you used to get the flour, scoop the Vaseline out of the Vaseline spoon into the flour in the Dixie cup
4. Fold the Vaseline into the flour ( you must fold it in you can't just mix it)
5. Once it looks like a solid mass, this should take a while. pour it into your hand and roll it around until it is mailable and not flaky.
If you want to change the skin tone of the putty ad some coco powder

Step 2: Make the Blood

The blood is made of glycerine ( I think it's a laxative but I'm not sure) and red food coloring. Glycerine is used because it does not dry out and it dissolves the red food coloring.
•To make the blood put 5 drops of red food coloring or until it looks right, into the glycerine.
• if you want the blood to be chunkier put some coco powder into it The amt. is up to you

Step 3: Application of the Wound

To apply the wound, first press any amount of skin putty onto the area you want the wound to be. Then using the spoon you used to scoop the Vaseline spread the putty, you must use the back of the spoon while using long strokes. Then spread a small amount of Vaseline around the edge of your putty. Make a cut with whatever u want, a knife spoon or teeth work well. Put blood in the cut. To make it look better take a paper towel and smear some blood around the cut. Also if you want to make it look infected smear a small amt. of coco powder in and around the cut. Just a warning in my pictures I did not have the right materials for blood, I had to make do with just red food coloring which dries out very quickly so yours will run and look more coagulated.

    Add a drip or two of blue to your blood & it will look more realistic.

    Excuse me, I think you’ll find there are two different types of blood vessels, one which is one hundred percent red which carries oxygen to the mitochondria which is within your cells, and another vessel is blue because it contains carbon dioxide to your lungs so it can be exhaled. I may be a student but I dissected lungs today so I know what I’m talking about. Many thanks, ells

    That’s why the veins in your wrist are blue, they are carrying co2 to your lungs and if you see any red veins that are carrying oxygen to your cells,
    Red blood cells are oxygenated blood cells and blue blood cells are deoxygenated blood cells.

    I made this last night and I was wondering if it is supposed to dry up a bit and firm up. I left it out on the counter all night and it was still too moist to use. Does it firm and dry up at all? Otherwise, it'll wipe right off on clothing or anything else. Thanks! ;)

    Wauw, this looks like a great way to save money on expensive special effects make-up wax :D You could add a little bit of brown face paint/eye shadow in the wound to make look deeper.

    if you colour the wound with your skin tone or with natural wound colouration it will make it more realistic
