The art of creating convincing wound makeup is certainly a veritable skill for Halloween and SFX, but what about pranks? Courtney Mault and Max Sparber's Halloween makeup tutorial reveals an interesting concept:
"Liquid latex rubber is great for wound makeup, large and small. Courtney likes to use it to create small flaps of skin for a skinned knuckle, which are convincing enough that when she occasionally wears her makeup to work as a prank, employers have insisted she seek first aid write a medical report, even after she has explained that her injury is just makeup."
Very clever. No need for fake blood and gore to be Halloween-exclusive… go ahead, embrace it all year round!
