Makeup Monday: An Extremely Convincing Severed Finger Tip

This is an incredibly convincing effect and surprisingly easy as well. Its amazing what a little bit of wax and some intelligently applied makeup can pull off. If you needed a quick shot for a finger severing scene this would fool me into thinking it was something much more complicated.

from the description:

What you’ll need to create this look is:

  • Nose and scar wax
  • Spirit gum or prosaide
  • Petroleum jelly
  • Sculpting tools
  • Mix of brushes and sponges
  • Skin illustrator palettes or cream makeups
  • Blood (preferably an aged or dark colour)
  • Sponge
