MYO Face Make-Up

Create your own eerie looking scabs

  • Two paintbrushes
  • Small saucepan or use 1 c. Glass Measuring cup in Micro
  • Cornmeal
  • Corn syrup
  • Red or brown water colors or make-up blush
  • One envelope unflavored Knox gelatin

Dissolve gelatin in 1/4c. cold water in a small saucepan, let set 1 minute, then continually stir over low heat until gelatin/water mix is clear. Allow to cool.

In the meantime, using a paintbrush, paint the shape of your scabs on your “victim” with corn syrup. Carefully cover the entire “scab” cornmeal. Let it set up for 2 full minutes, then lightly blow off the excess.
Carefully shade the scab with the make-up colors you have chosen. By now your gelatin mix should be cool, very carefully paint the “scab” with the mix, avoiding pressure so you don’t ruin the cornmeal texturing. The gelatin will help seal your “scab” and prevent it from wearing off.
