"FIRST Aid special effects recipes" Not for the younger ones!!
First Aid special effects (skin and blood) always made it fun to learn first aid.

Mortician's wax to hold on any funky attachments. Mortician's wax can be purchased at any costuming store. It was also useful as the "starting point" for bleeding wounds such as bullet wounds, impaled objects, and lacerations, in addition to open fractures.

Turkey and chicken bones for extruding bones, Plexiglas for flying glass.

Blue eye shadow strategically placed for simulating shock.

Burnt marshmallows exteriors for burnt skin.

Vaseline with white tissues over them simulate blisters.

Ground rouge and then ground charcoal over the top of Vaseline for third degree burns, tissue (either Kleenex or toilet tissue) over the Vaseline and rouge, then possibly torn and lifted up for the blister) for second degree burns; this can also be added for third degree burns, just don't use the charcoal on second degree.

For blood use blue liquid laundry starch with red food coloring added. It sticks well, it gives the coloration of blood, and dries with the consistency of real blood. Or a mixture of cocoa and water with food coloring, placed in squeeze bottles drips marvelously. Very gory.

For a simpler simulation of blood: mix catsup and face cream.

chuckle It works tho

I know it sounds gross, but these are great tips for teens and adults as well, that might want to do their own face make up, or even add any effects to their halloween props, You will save ALOT of money doing it this way. I have personally bought over the years, not recently halloween decorations, skulls etc,,and every year i am looking for something new to add to them, so these recipes can also be applied to some older props to bring them up to date and more gruesome...
