How To Apply a Realistic Bloody Wound or Scar Makeup

Learn how to create an ultra-realistic looking wound using inexpensive silicone and paint! Hey Will, there’s something on your forehead…

  1. This is a very cool video tutorial. Great job with the questions and layout, Norm. I would definitely like to see more of these!

    SPOILER FOR FACEOFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not read if you are behind on watching Faceoff!!!!!!

    Frank should not have been kicked off that early, especially for his deadly sin. Eddy really should have gone home; I mean, how does that portray envy? An this week Miranda dodged a bullet from a gun pressed against her head because Laney dropped out.

  2. How on gods name did you fail to mention full metal jacket in the Kubrick episode. Keep up the awesome work but damn you guys passed over an excellent title!

  3. I know, I really liked Frank on Face Off. I thought he would have gone to the finals. I knew Eddie wasn’t going to make it, not that he is bad, just young. Frank really had some great ideas and work on the show.

  4. I can’t believe how much Frank sounds like Dave Snider.

    Holy shit, you’re right. The voice sounded so familiar.

  5. Yeesh. Good job, I was actually a bit worried that Will got smacked by machinery yesterday after seeing the teaser pic.

  6. That is so awesome! I really love all those makeup effects. If it’s not too much of a trade secret it would be really cool to have a few more of them on the show as some sort of mini tutorials. Special effects makeup is such a fascinating craft. 🙂

    about 3.5 years ago a friend of mine went to a costume party as the joker (everybody was the Joker back then ;). Of course he bought some of the ready made scars makeup.

    I guess if I had seen this video I would have tried to scuplt the scars on him manually and not with those things that came in the Joker-Kit. It’s awesome watching you work. Please do it more often, if possible 🙂
