It’s back to gore and blood this week at So let’s just jump right in to the bloody mess that is the, Sliced Wrist Tutorial.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  2. Graftobian Molding Wax
  3. Mehron Setting Powder

  5. Kryolan 6 color Burn and Injury Wheel
  6. Stipple Sponge
  7. Vaseline
  8. Q-tip

The Application:

Start out by brushing the Spirit Gum on the spot where you will add the cut. Before grabbing your wax, be sure to get your fingers covered in Vaseline. This will keep them from sticking to the wax. Apply the wax onto the spirit gum area and begin smoothing it out.

You will want all of the edges to be smooth and the middle area of the wax should be higher than the edges.

At this point, we will be making our slice through the wax. You can use just about anything to create the slicing effect, such as a toothpick, butter knife (not serrated) etc… You will slice from top to bottom. Powder the wax completely with your Setting Powder to prepare it for adding color and blood effects.

Next, grab your Burn and Injury Wheel, and using a q-tip, add black to the center of the slice.

Continue using a q-tip and begin adding the light pink and red from your Burn and Injury Wheel. These colors will be added to the edges of the slice.

Add Blood Gel to the center of the slice and grab your stipple sponge and tap all around the sliced area to create a random bloody pattern around the slice.

These types of special FX are great for Halloween. They are easy to learn and execute. I have personally offered special effects such as this one at Comic Cons and they were a big hit.
