Introduction: School Scars
Have you ever wanted to make fake scars, for lets say getting out of class or for a neat Halloween costume, but don't want to pay the 8-10 bucks a bottle for latex? Well, here is the solution, using only items found in a household or at school I created a fake scar that can pass for a real one from a distance of 5 or 6 feet away.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
For this Instructable, you will need a few toothpicks, a few q tips, some wax paper, colored pencils, a red pen, a red marker, and some rubber cement. You can start by placing a small <> shaped (ovular with pointed edges) don't be too neat because normal scars aren't.
Step 2: Make a Reservoir
Just make a thin and long canyon or reservoir in the center of your glob of rubber cement.
Step 3: Now for the Bruising
Let the rubber cement sit for a bit, but not for too long. Around 5 minutes or until it starts to feel or look more gooey. Then after that, bust out your colored pencils from an art kit, or just colored pencils. Take the pencils and run them through a manual pencil sharpener at an angle, so the shavings coming out of it are only colored pencil, no wood. What this does is create a really low grade makeup. The colors you will need is a deep red, black, a light purple, and a dark purple. To start, use a paintbrush(dry) and dab it into the black makeup and apply it near the center of the scar, then overlay some red onto that. After that, apply the darker purple on the inside, and the lighter purple on the outside of the scar.
Step 4: Apply Blood
Take your red pen and your marker(not shown) and make an uneven, random line in the middle of the scar, don't be too neat, or outlandish, it will look fake if you do. After that, go ahead and cut it out, you don't have to yet, but it helps with bending if you do.
Step 5: Add Scar Tissue
Well, you may think you are done, and can be if you would prefer a less realistic scar, but in most cases scars develop tissue around the laceration, so this part is easy, simply layer on some more rubber cement around the OUTSIDE of the scar, by outside I mean not in the blood area.
Step 6: Application
To apply the scar, find a colored pencil or pastel that best matches your skin, and use it as blush to make it blend in to your skin better. After that, use skin friendly(Elmer's glue) to apply it to you wherever. I recommend putting it on your wrist for best results. Enjoy making people queasy!
