A couple of weeks ago, the folks over at Lionsgate held a crimson-drenched event wherein punters could be made up professionally to resemble the scarred victims of the Saw franchise’s villain.
Now, with both Halloween and the release of Saw 3D fast approaching, we’ve got some costume tips from one of the make-up artists involved!
A very simple recipe for blood:
• Red eye shadow (such as MAC red pigment)
• Instant coffee
1. Simply dissolve the coffee in some hot water.
2. Pour the glycerin into a bowl (depending on how much blood you want)
3. Add eyeshadow and coffee solution until you get a realistic looking mixture.
4. To make it thicker add corn flour.
Don’t use in the mouth, though!
To make a blood that’s safe in the mouth I would recommend using corn syrup, food coloring and coffee or chocolate syrup and red food coloring.
You can add bread, Ready Brek, and even cooled jelly to make gruesome congealed blood and flesh.
Scars, scabs, burns and skins diseases can be made with rice crispies, cornflakes, porridge oats and tissues, or anything else you have in the cupboard. Just glue them on with spirit gum eyelash glue or children’s PVA glue.
They can be coloured up with greasepaint (or lipstick! Just remember to mix red with brown, to get a more realistic colour.
A creamy Cup-a-Soup makes good ‘sick’, as does a mashed up banana and milk … Just add carrots!
