I am preparing for my costume for Halloween but I don't want to spend to much money on it. I need to make fake bloody wounds and tears. Instead of buying expensive prosthetic, I made some out of materials that I can find inside my house. Using tissue papers and other household stuffs, I did a fake stitched skin.
1. Cut a 1" by 3" construction paper. (It may vary depending on the size of the wound you want to do.) This will serve as the base of your fake wound.
2. Design your wound by drawing the basic shape on a piece of construction paper to use as a guide. Using a craft knife, cut out the trace of the opening of the wound.
3. Apply a layer of glue and put teared tissue paper on it and form it into the basic design you did on your wound, then thin out the edges of so it forms a near paper thin edging that will blend into your skin. Let it dry for about 10 minutes.
4. Apply paints around the edges of the wound using flesh tone as base and then yellow above it in very light coats. Apply red in the inner area to serve as fresh flesh.
5. Using a needle and thread/ string, stitch the wound as you would. In what I did, I used a piece of wire.
6. Now, remove the unnecessary edges of construction paper so that it will blend on your skin. You now have a fake stitched wound. Time to apply on your skin.
7. Apply it anywhere you want it to put using a glue or a liquid latex if you have. Apply make up or body paint around edges with a skin tone color. Paint red inside the wound. Add petroleum jelly to the inside of the wound to make it look moist.
