Special FX tutorial – Stepped on a plug arghhh!!

Don’t you just hate it when this happens?!!!

What you will need

  • liner pencil – you can use any but I used my Kryolan white pencil.
  • Collodion, I used Kryolans.
  • Grease or water paints – I used my Kryolan Supracolour Palette.
  • Blood – I used Grimmas blood. 
  • Blood paste – I used Grimmas blood paste.
  • Translucent setting powder.
  • Sponges
  • Brushes – I used my screenface makeup brushes but you can use small art brushes to. 

    First make sure your working on a clean, dry area. I would also make sure your floor is protected as this can be messy. 

    Using your liner pencil outline on the bottom of your foot where the plug pin wounds are going to be. I used a white liner as it’s easy to blend.

    Next I used Collodion, Collodion is a great scaring material. It wrinkles the skin once it’s dry. I used this to give the illusion that there is more depth to the wounds. However this is not an essential step.

    I then outlined the boundary of the would with black (071) from my supracolour palette. Then I filled the wound in with a red (079) from my supracolour palette.

    To set greasepaints you will need to use a translucent setting powder.

    Next you will need to blend the colours Well, try not to blend the black into the middle to much. It’s easier using a window wiper motion with a blending brush around the boundary of the wound to help control the colour blending. 

    The picture above shows how the collodion really can help give the illusion of a more realistic would or scar.

    Now you will need to get your blood paste (maybe get some wipes to as this can get messy!) On each wound put some blood paste but not so much that it overlaps the wound. Then spread the paste in the wound. 

    The wound now has texture.

    Finally you can now finish off with some blood on each wound. I blotted around each wound with a sponge, this was so I didn’t go over the top with the blood. Then find a plug and put some blood on the pins (make sure it’s cleaned well after)

    I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and if you try it yourself, I would love to see the finished result! 

    See you soon guys
