now is the time to also go shopping for holloween masks, you can find all sorts of scars, burns, and such also bald head wigs... I cut up these, and use as is, or decorate as needed... (if you do not have spare iv arm material available)... you can get very creative, even melt with a tourch (BE CAREFUL IF DOING THIS RUBBER MASKS CAN BE VERY FLAMMABLE..so do outside, with a tub of water nearby) ...attach peices with velcro
a couple of other moulage tips:
- red electrical tape for blood... a little in an ear canal, or take a hard set of teeth and put a peice of red tape 1/2 over the gums, 1/2 over the teeth... then trim out the parts over teeth, leaving little strips to fill in between teeth with red "blood"... or use where ever you need some blood on simman.
- plumbers putty.. (the stuff used to seal your faucet to the sink)... shape it to desired "wound" (a lump on head)... press onto simman's skin, then you can slice a "laceration" into the putty... put in it a peice of red tape, be sure to trim edges so it appears jagged... insert into the laceration in the putty... fold over edges of cut to seal in blood, but not cover it completely... apply a wee bit of skin colored make up to the putty and you are done... fast and easy, I have not tried to make burns yet with the putty, but I would have to guess it would work well for that too.... cleans up pretty fast too..
good luck, have fun, be safe ut there,
