Scars to go!

Post by TheSparklingLady on Mon Oct 04, 2010 1:30 am

I got a cool tip:
Paper towel scars can be pre-made! Is that cool??
I figure if you can make them just before the client shows up, you can make a whole BUNCH for the night we need them!!
We can adjust the tone when we have our clients before us.
Make a couple and try them on someone and see if you think this is a good idea. Take pictures and let us all know how it works. I will try it too.

My school glue is a dried up goop. I'll get some tomorrow and try this:

Here what you need:
Wax paper
-paper towel one or two sheets
- make-up in one or two zombieish shades
-Elmer's style school glue

1. lay out the wax paper
2.Take paper towel and *shred a sheet into approx scar lengths (*remove any straight edges off the towel before cutting)
3. Lay the scars out on Wax Paper
4. Paint the scars with make-up
5. Let dry
6. Paint the scars with glue
7. Let dry REALLY WELL
8. Roll the scars up in the wax paper!! (the glue helps keep them from falling around).
9. Tote to the Zombie Station location!
10. Incorporate the scars into faces and adjust make-up color to match

Hope this works I think it is possible and there is no latex involved. Smile

I've even done with cotton wool and latex.
Let them dry and store them in my case.
If I need them then I paste it with mastic and add the color.
Works well!

I use a silicone mat or the practice skin.
Add liquid latex on the mat.
Roll a tuft of cotton wool and place it on the latex on the mat.
Soak it with a new layer of latex.
Let them dry and pul it of the mat.
Store them in a flat box or something like that.
I'll try to make an SBS.

Scabs are super easy... Soak some bran flakes or corn flakes in red food colouring, then lay them on a plate to dry ALMOST completely. Apply with liquid latex or adhesive.... instant scab!

I like to leave them a little pliable so I can flatten them to the skin without breaking.

The burn is done with tissue, liquid latex and face paint. With a little vaseline for ooze.

SHANNON!! Oh that rocks. I am going to have fun trying all this out soon ... my brother's memorial is this weekend. Family coming from all over; this stuff we have been doing together has REALLY gotten my mind off that event. THANK you Shannon and all for being a most therapeutic team. Smile

SINCERELY.

For storage you stick them (they remain a bit sticky) on a sheet of plastic film and wrap them in.
This keeps the edges nicely and flat.
And they do not stick together.

There is a gross Silly Farm video called "Halloween Horror" in 3 parts at

www.youtube.com/watch?v=hv7LKpCxwaU
www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0r0YjMg7qg&feature=related
www.youtube.com/user/sillyheatherb#p/u/31/rVtkY_mS9pQ

It has step by step instructions for a slashed throat, bloody nose and black eye. Not sure how much help it would be for zombies, but maybe you can adapt some of it.
