1  Re: Zombie Makeup Tutorial.....with tasty fake blood recipe (pic heavy and blood in Halloween Costumes by MamaVSoap on: November 01, 2009 03:16:15 AM
I used to do this without the tissue paper. I love this technique!!! I used it last night and scared a few of the little kids. I also heard a few "Are you OK"s from the parents.

Here's the pic. The creepy face is mine. Only the gashes were added:

Honestly, it's not as hard as it looks.

I use my crock pot to bring it to the sticky, taffy phase (liquid soap's version of trace) and then wrap it in a towel and set it in a Coleman cooler for 24 hours. When I'm done, it's a gorgeous paste.

Diluting takes a little while, but I use a slow method. I fill a large stock pot with water with a cake cooling rack in the bottom of the pan, and set mason jars on top of the wire rack so I can dilute my soap in mason jars. I'll try to take pics of that process next time. I heat 8-9 ozs of water in each mason jar first and then shred a pound of the paste into each jar. It takes 3-4 hours of simmering on low to dissolve the paste. Then I cap the jars and nestle them into the cooler. I heat them a 3rd time (after a week or so) to scent and color. But again, it's not necessary to wait. I added steps, but it fits my lifestyle.

Try it!!

These blanks are under the brand  name "Aroma Art" and are available at Kangaroo Blue http://www.kangarooblue.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=97_105 Wick's Wares http://wickscandlesupplies.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=WCS&Category_Code=aroma-art or Wicks, Wax, and Scents http://www.wicks-wax-scents.com/candlesupplies.html

The third link shows someone painting on the fragrance.

Fragrance is any fragrance oil used for soaps, lotions, or candles. I'm using them to use up some sample FOs. Just paint the scent on with a small paintbrush. Each blank takes a couple teaspoons of scent.

It definitely worked better transferring the image and then scenting. Scenting first managed to heat the scent out.  Roll Eyes
