How to use liquid latex for wounds

The steps are as follows:

Step 1: Supplies

You’ll need the following materials for this project:

Foundation such as the Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation, a basic palette for at least four colors such as the Woosh Beauty The Fold Out Face Full Face Palette #2 Medium Light, setting powder such as the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder, liquid latex with an applicator, fake blood such as the Evo Dyne Real Fake Blood, and Brawny Tear-A-Square Paper Towels, 8 Double Rolls.

Step 2: Constructing and prosthetic

Begin washing the region where you want to apply the product. Apply the first thin coat of liquid latex after the area is dry and clean. Employ the liquid latex using a brush, a wood applicator, or even your fingers if they are clean. Professionals say that using the fingers gives you the best outcomes. Allow the liquid latex to dry until it comes to a sticky state. (Quick Tip: To speed up the drying process, use a blow dryer in the setting of cold). Let the latex dry fully before applying another layer if you want to deepen the foundation.

Discard a square of toilet paper when the latex base dries. The great two-ply side kind is smooth. Ply and twist on either side. Rise the skin surrounding the wound. Apply one to the latex base.

Apply latex with your fingers to the paper in your application area. Blend the wound structure generously with your skin. The interior should be hasty.

Step 3: Setting and drying

Let the latex fully dry. Then take a 15-minute rest to allow the latex to fix even more. After the latex has dried, use the setting powder to remove the tackiness and prevent the makeup from gelatinizing the application. After that, you can remove the powder.

The powder dulls the colors and leaves its residue. Dabbing it with a moist paper towel fixes the issue. The area is now dry, set, and ready for the next phase. Makeup!

Step 4: Makeup

Applying makeup is an art that may be stressful. The following is a general guideline that should help each case. The artist starts with the liquid foundation to give the application a base color. Use a flat brush to apply the foundation evenly. Use a blending sponge to blend the foundation into the skin. After blending, use a pad to apply a darker foundation to enhance the depth.

The darker foundation will bring attention to the wound away from the blending errors. It will seem bruised as actual wounds do.

Now it is time to accentuate the wound with lighter makeup. Use a thin flat brush to apply the highlights solely to the top. Then texture using a texture sponge. After blending the wounds from the top:

  • Work on the interior of the wounds.
  • Start by adding darker makeup to the wound.
  • Set the makeup with setting powder.
  • Blotting with wet toilet paper restores color and removes powder.

Step 5: Touchup and enhancement

The most fun part is the fake blood. Apply fake blood with a tiny tip brush. Any common DIY fake blood can also work. Use a paper towel to dab and spread the blood onto the wound. Then re-apply the blood. You may stop here. To make the wound more unhealthy, I wanted flesh and snot in it. I soaked a q-tip in stage blood and then plucked cotton threads off with a push pin. Great results.
