1. On stomach area, apply liquid latex glue. Allow to completely dry. 2. Place impaled object onto skin and tape all edges down with clear thin medical tape. 3. Intestines used are actually colored oatmeal in a double-wrapped condom. Add latex glue to one side of oatmeal-filled condom. Let dry. 4. Take this and insert over the impaled object, making sure the glue side of oatmeal will touch the stomach once it is placed over the impaled object. 5. Spread this in manner of the effect desired.
Thick dark blood
We have a new one for you to try: Super Tech's multi-duty complex mixed with some red and a touch of blue food coloring makes some really cool thick dark "blood". Mechanics use it all day long!
“Schkin” – simulated skin: In a large bowl, mix together (2) 13 oz. petroleum jelly, (3) 16 oz. solid cornstarch, 2-5 TBS cocoa powder (depending on color). You don’t want it too sticky or too dry. You can start out mixing it with a spatula, but eventually will need to put on rubber gloves and get your hands in it to get it mixed all the way through. It is easier to clean up with paper towels, first, then try and wash your hands with soap and water.
1. Spread a thick mixture of denture powder and water, make thick enough so it doesn't drip. 2. Using tool, make a slit down the center of fake skin buildup for the area showing a cut. 3. Add bruising around the edges and powder on top. 4. Work gash wide. 5. Squeeze in semi-thick liquid blood. . Smear as needed.
Use black power makeup on a brush and touch up under nose, mouth and eyes for inhalation effect from smoke, or explosions etc.

Hanging head skin
1. Much the same as the broken leg. You do not have to tape down the fake piece you use. 2. Can use liquid latex in center of cuts with insert of a small strand of cotton spread through. 3. Add thick blood. 4. Add thin blood.
Use a single serving package of hot cereal or oatmeal. Tastes great and looks bad!
I started using sausage casing for my intestines instead of condoms. Looks more like intestines and you can actually puncture them without them really bursting and making a huge mess. Looks more like they are seeping. Also with sausage casings you can just have a hand full of intestines any length you desire and they look pretty real, especially if you make them a little greenish. Sausage casings can be purchased at any butcher shop that packages and processes their own meat.
Thin blood: Follow directions for "Heavy Starch" under "Easy directions" on box of Argo - Gloss Laundry Starch. (Be ready to store some of this, for the box directions make two plus quarts of liquid - it stores well at room temperature.) For each cup of liquid laundry starch, add 1 oz. (which is usually 1 bottle of red food color) and two drops of blue color. Stir well.
1. Locate area with no skin creases or areas that you bend at. 2. Smear on latex glue in wide area. Note: Do not allow any clothing to rub area of design. 3.

Spread plumbers putty around and away from wound edges. Apply thick. 7. Add thick blood to cotton area
Burn and Blisters
Here are a few suggestions given to me by an emergency room nurse. She said they have used these ideas in training their emergency responders. Use a little thicker mix of instant plain oatmeal to simulate skin sloughing off after a burn. I tried it to see how it looks and it is pretty good. Takes a little bit for it to dry but I aided the drying process by using a blow dryer.
1. Add bruising to the face. 2. Apply tacky thick blood in area with Popsicle stick. 3. Use ashes from fireplaces to add additional effects over blood. Displays a dirty and charred look. 4. Add some petroleum jelly to help with shiny look.
Amputated Fingers and Toes
For "life-like" amputations, use peeled apples or potatos for fingers and toes. Remember to cut apples a little larger than needed because they shrink (and change color) as they dry. Add some blood and you have a finger in search of a hand!
1. Apply fairly thick liquid latex glue to the arm area, thick enough to work with. 2. Let dry. 3. Using a tool, pick up small parts of the latex and roll them back to make it look like it is blistered. 4. Add blush for burn effects. 5. Add petroleum jelly under some fake skin to look blistery. 6. Add ashes sparingly with a Popsicle stick.
