Emily: Hi, I am Emily at Masters Costumes and today we are creating a scurvy pirate face. We are going to take this to the next level now and we are going to have a gory, zombie pirate when we end up. So, your local theater supply place or Halloween cosmetic suppliers should have a good deal of pre-package wounds. These are generally made out of latex and you can buy these pre-made and apply them.

However, today I am going to show you how to make your own wound. So this gives you a lot of freedom to really do any type of wound. You can do burn wound, bullet holes, puncture wounds, any type of thing like that can be achieved by using liquid latex and we are actually going to use in addition, tissue. This is just normal toilet paper, it does have a texture to it, ideally its nice to have something without texture but the most important thing is that it be a single ply.

So, if you have got two different layers, here you are going to want to pull those apart and what I like to do is I like to feather the edges a bit, depending on how much surface you are going to carry, you are going to cover with it. I usually find that between two and three inches square is generally large enough.

I like to make myself a little pile of these and have them on hand and what you are actually going to be creating is the second layer of skin on the existing skin and that is going to be something that you can obliterate, annihilate, mutilate to anything you want to. Really makes this as effective as possible. So, if you dont see the prosthetic that you had in mind at your theatrical supply store then this is going to be a great instruction on how to build it.

So, once you have a couple layers available, set aside, then what you are actually going to do first is apply a layer of liquid latex. Now, once again this prosthetic is made out of latex, this is the dried version of this. Its basically a rubbery like material and its going to dry clear even though it goes on white. It doesnt have a very pleasant odor but I guarantee that it will dry odorless and colorless. Once its dry you wont even notice it.

The one thing about latex is it does not have a remover so anywhere that you apply needs to be completely free of hair because it will pull your hair out. Also if you have latex allergy, you want to be sure that you dont get anywhere near this kind of stuff.

They are not very common but you probably know already if you have ever used band aid whether or not you have latex allergy. So, we are going to start with a base coat of latex, and you are going to apply this to clean skin and just basically covering the area that is going to have the wound on it.

Now, I am going to show you after this is done, if you make it in several layers, I usually like to do three to four layers, how you can actually use this again so, once again dont get that in the hair.

We are going to do layer of latex and then lay down a couple of our wrapped up sheets of toilet paper, or tissue ideally and you are going to basically saturate these pieces in every single layer with latex. Once you have the dry tissue, you are going to saturate that with latex. You dont have to be ridiculously generous but you do -- once you create a nice solid base because we are really going to be rough with it once we are done.

So, like I said that constitutes just one layer latex, tissue, latex. I like to do between two and four layers. So, we are just going to keep building this up. Always make sure that the edges are sealed, next we are going to show you how when this dries , we can rip this up and make your own gore latex prosthetic.

Thanks for these videos. I decided I wanted to do some prosthetics on myself for a pirates night at my church, and these videos were all I needed to learn everything I needed to do. You can see a photo of what I did here: http://www.new.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1935783&l=9af26&id=1259206441 I'll probably add an outline about how I did it, along with some photos, to my website at http://www.markdarb.com once I've been emailed some better photos of it.
