Hey guys,
Just as a quick update... I came home from Chicago to some really good news. I found out on Monday that I was assigned lead make-up for NKU's production of "The Aaronsville Woman", taking place during our annual YES Festival!

I am really excited... They have told me the following:

-Lead actress needs burn scars on her hands
-Must be able to wear gloves that will be RIPPED off during performance
-Scars must 3D or have "texture"
-Must NOT be flammable due too scene where actress burns a letter.

So yeah, this will be really fun! I will try to take pictures of the process and post them to share!

Happy Haunting. -Tyler

Just some suggestions as im a make up nut!!

On your glass peice, stipple a few layers of liquid latex around the appliance this will hide the edges and makes it look like the skin tore back when the glass hit the subject. Use a few different types of blood, Blood Gel is a darker color and thicker consistancy, put a fine line of that along the glass edge and use a lighter colored blood such as FX to blend it outward.

As far as the 3-d burn i would go with the usual latex, cotton burn it is pretty tough when complete (hence the glove ripping schene) but another really cool effect that would look great is Mehrons 3-d gel over the top of it for that melted skin look and when dry it is very durable!

Just some thoughts, let me know if i can answer any more questions for you. And congrads Tyler, sounds like some doors are opening for you and from what weve seen from you here probably many more will open down the road!

Kevin, you beat me to it! Mehron's 3d gel is great for many uses including burns.

03-03-2007, 09:41 AM
Thanks man for the suggestions... It really, REALLY helps! Where on the web can I find the 3D gel? How expensive is it?

Thanks guys for all the comments and suggestions, this is really helping me out! -Tyler

I think you can order it from Mehron on there website. We have it available locally at Costume Specialists and I know they will ship or you can pick it up when you come to MHC :)

Thanks Barry... I'm for sure ordering some! -Tyler

Yes to add to Barry's reply all our Halloween stores sell it, when they didn't carry it i had them order it for me.

I use it on quite a few applications and the crowd OOGLES to death about it, they love the look of it.

Real easy to use, just heat and pour on and let stand for a few minutes.

If your doing a large open wound i like to go around the indention with it and then tack it with a finger and web it back and forth over the wound, this looks awesome!
I have a picture i will post, i used it to fill in a missing eye i did on myself last summer but the coloring was terrible(don't laugh!) it was 90 degree's outside and the make up was falling off as i was doing it so i did not color it, i got it applied and called it quits we had a hour car ride to get to a hearse owners meet.


Like i said i didn't color it so yes i know it dosen't match!
