I'm in school learning special effects makeup, and just thought I'd post some of the stuff I did for class in my first semester.

One of the first things we did was bruises and black eyes (I used Ben Nye's bruise wheel for these):





We also had some fun using food to do makeup effects - this lovely number was made with ramen noodles, latex, toilet paper, and.. personal lubricant XD:



One of my favorite things in that class was using cabo-bondo (a mixture of Cab-o-sil which is basically silica powder, and Pros-Aid adhesive).  It's a bitch to get off, but it was really fun and easy to use.  These scratches were sculpted on the models with the cabo-bondo, then painted with alcohol activated makeup:

I really should have photographed them dripping blood, but oh well.


False nose made of mortician's wax:


Gelatin bullet wound:


Transfer appliance (made with thickened Pros-Aid poured into a silicone mold):

(I didn't sculpt this appliance, btw; I  cast it, applied it, and did the makeup.)

Infected girl - more ramen noodles and latex:


Infected girl nomming on a poor unfortunate:


Thanks for looking!  Comments and crits always welcome.

That's awesome-sauce.  Looks like it would be a lot of fun.  I thought they were real bruises - I saw the little pic on the front page and thought 'Why is someone posting pictures of a bruise?  Did they have some tragic sewing accident or something?'

Wow, those cuts and bruises look.. real! Do they look just as realistic in person as in the pictures?
The food ones weren't as realistic as the makeup ones though.

I saw this post on the front page, too, and also wondered why someone was posting pictures of a bruise!

Yep, I'm with the ones who was expecting a horrifying sewing accident to explain the bruises. Cheesy Those are dead on.

The lacerations are so great, I'm already prepping a suture kit in my brain to fix them. Cheesy

These are so realistic, it's amazing!  LOL, it would be so funny to wear these scratches out in public and see people's reactions!
