How to make realistic wounds with cheese wax

One of the most spectacular Halloween makeups are certainly those that involve fake blood and wounds. Making them isn’t that difficult, especially since you don’t need to spend money on specific products for special effects to get a very realistic effect. In fact, you just need to recycle the wax that covers certain types of cheeses.

Remove the wax from the cheese and work it with your hands to make it soft, but not too soft. Perfectly clean the skin, even with a tonic, and do not apply creams or greasy products. At this point take a small amount of wax, give it the shape of the wound you want to make, helping you with some photos to give it a more realistic look. Apply it on the skin and begin to flatten the edges, so that it remains well adherent to your face. You can help yourself with your fingers or a spatula, so as not to leave any thickness.

If you think you are sweating or want the wax to stick securely, you can use some false eyelash glue or cosmetic putty which will ensure even more hold. With a toothpick, then, create the real groove of the wound, then opening it slightly with your fingers. At this point you just have to color it and give it three-dimensionality with pencils and eye shadows and apply fake blood.

Another method of creating wounds: with toilet paper

Not just with wax, quick and easy Halloween makeup wounds can also be created easily with toilet paper. Separate the plies of toilet paper and cut into small pieces or strips by tearing it with your fingers, so that they are not too regular. You will then need some vinyl glue (non-toxic and suitable for children) and a cheap brush, which you can eventually throw away.

Put the vinyl glue in a container, dip the brush, then place the strip of toilet paper where you want to make the wound and sprinkle it with glue. Help yourself with a hair dryer to make the layers dry faster and continue to overlap toilet paper to give greater thickness. Try to flatten the edges of the toilet paper well, applying only a veil, where you want the wound to end, so that there is no step with the skin and the final effect is more realistic.

Let the wound dry well and with nail scissors or a toothpick pierce the wound with toilet paper and cut it to create the groove in which you will subsequently apply black, red, purple or the colors you will need to create your wound. You can then proceed with some fake blood to make it even more realistic.

A super simple recipe for making liquid fake blood

Making fake blood is really very easy and fast, you need very few easily available ingredients, which you may already have in the kitchen. There are many really easy recipes, all united by the fact that you will need red food coloring to give the typical color of blood.

A first recipe involves the use of honey or liquid caramel mixed with soluble coffee or cocoa powder. In a container apply a few teaspoons of coffee or cocoa, depending on how much blood you want to make and some water. Don’t overdo it, you can always add more later. Stir to remove the lumps then apply a few drops of food coloring, protecting your hands with gloves so as not to stain.

Now mix and adjust the fake blood density and color by testing it on a piece of paper. If the blood turns out to be too light, add some coffee or cocoa, if it is too dark you can lighten it with corn starch. If the blood is too thick, add a little more water, on the contrary, if it seems too liquid, add cocoa, coffee and corn starch so as not to lose the desired color.

Instead of starch you can also use flour, being careful not to leave lumps and sifting it inside the container. Be careful because the flour is thicker, perfect so if you want a thicker blood, to create an effect of old wounds with coagulated blood. In this case, also adjust the color, because the blood will be very dark. All of these methods are also safe to use on or near the mouth because they contain only edible ingredients, even if the flavor won’t be the best.
