Protruding Bone Effect

You’ll Need:
1 T. Clear Gelatin
1 T. Boiling Hot Tea (brewed to match your skin tone)- this is what “colors” your faux skin
1/4 tsp Liquid Glycerin
Gauze
Chicken Bone
Fake Blood

In a small bowl mix the clear gelatin, boiling hot tea and liquid glycerin, stirring well. This mixture will VERY quickly become a translucent fake skin, once it’s cool enough to handle, spread it thinly on your “victim.

You’ll have to work FAST, this cools very quickly and hardens.

While it’s still pliable, use a toothpick or wooden skewer to (gently!) break the surface of the “skin” giving it the appearance of being torn open. Slip one end of the chicken bone underneath, leaving the jagged end partially exposed.

This works best if done on an exposed foot or wrist. Wrap gauze around the wound gently, apply fake blood & continue to cover your “victim” with various cuts, scrapes and bruises.
