DIY Eye Sugery by RabidBallerina DIY Eye Sugery by RabidBallerina
Cause what safer way could you do it than with safty pins?


Actually about half-way through this I realized it was probably dangerous having even closed pins near my eye, so DON'T try this at home, kids.

That being said, however, I'm still happy with it. (even though you can't see all the safty pins so well here.)

Done with: Little bit of liquid latex, geletin, corn flakes, food dye, etc

I applaud you. I intend to create a realistic zombie makeup in the future. You have just set a new standard for me. If you don't mind, I'd love some tips from you on how to create open wounds.

Thank you very much for your kind words! Well, for this particular job the key ingrediant is geletin. You buy standard unflavored knox geletin-check your baking or canning aisle-and mix in a small amount of (very!) hot water. It shold begin to gel and clump. It will take some practice to get the right consistency. Color it as you please; I prefer some red food dye, blood, and a dot of blue dye. (Blue is an excellent color to pair with reds for deep blood tones) You can now use this for dripping blood or for a bloody gloss. For the texture seen here, mix crushed corn flakes, (or cherios, or chex...you get it :) ), and slather on.

THe gouged eye effect is a circle cut out of black panty hose, adhered with liquid latex, patched around the outside with toliet paper, (make sure to use 1-ply, or at least non-flowered), covered with greasepaint and geletin. I always smudge a little greasepaint around the edge to blend.

You enticed a shot a laughter when you mentioned flowered toilet paper. I understand what you mean but I got some mental image of a torn wound with flower patterns on the edges. But I really do thank you for the tip. I'm off to check the rest of your works as I'm very curious about what else you did so far.

Funny thing is I just uploaded a tutorial a day or two ago. :) [link]

This one here however also features gelatin. Go grab yourself a box of unflavored knox gelatin at the store. Get some water very hot and add a small increment of it to the gelatin powder to make a lumpy goo. Add red food coloring with a dot of blue. Mix and apply! Here I have added crushed corn flakes for texture. :D

Haha well I wouldn't quite say I'm a master yet, I've only been doing it for over a year. But I'm glad you like. :D

The scratch marks are made with a stipple sponge; your new textural best friend. I really don't remember what I used for the scratched product wise, but it was probably just left over red dyed geletin. I don't typically have monies for nice "products". :D

Pretty gruesomely awesome! The tiny little scratch like marks around the perimeter- what did you use tool-wise and product-wise for them. Sorry I ask so many questions. Just trying to learn from the master! lol

I have used the stipple sponge for my bruises and busted capillaries and blood vessels but never thought to use it for scratches. Whatever, you are a master and a genius! Thanks!

Very well done. That's pretty close to what acute necrotizing fasciitis looks like, except in this case there is a definite lack of creamy translucent yellow exudate. Mind the staph.
