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)
