MYO Flesh Wound

Create your own Gruesome looking Flesh Wound with this simple recipe

  • petroleum jelly
  • red food coloring
  • baking cocoa powder
  • disposable tissue
  • bowl
  • toothpicks

Use a toothpick to mix 3-4 drops of red food coloring into a dollop of petroleum jelly (e.g., Vaseline).
Stir in enough cocoa (a pinch or so) to darken the red color to a deeper, blood-like tint.

Separate the tissue and tear out a small rectangle (3×2 inches) from a single layer of the paper.

Place the tissue at the wound site and cover it with the petroleum jelly mixture.

Carefully mold the tissue into a wound shape, with the edges raised higher than the center of the wound.

Add some petroleum jelly mixture to the center of the wound.

Sprinkle cocoa at the edges of the wound to darken it. Add cocoa to the wound center if a scabby (as opposed to fresh) appearance is desired.

Red food coloring will stain, so avoid wound contact with clothing or furniture.

If you have tips to make the wound look even more realistic, please let me know.
