My name is Jesse Lechok and we’re here again at the Tom Savini's School of Special-Effects. Rudy, my assistant is getting trauma wounds. And what we’re going to do next is we’re know a wax built up and it's just going to be a slash or simple slice wound. We’re using Ben Nye products mainly, Nose & Scar Wax. This stuff is great. You can mold and sculpt with it, but first you want to lay down a layer of either prozed or latex. Most of you probably don't have access to prozed, but you can get latex at most Halloween stores or at costumes shops stuff like that and you're just going to put up a layer and this the base on which you're going to apply the wax. You want to work this stuff with your fingers. That's very malleable. But the warmer it gets, the easier it gets to blend in. You can use a little spatula or a tool. I am just going to use my fingers. I am just going to sculpt it in his skin, and then blend down as low you can. Now you’re going to go over this again with latex, so you will have simple opportunities to hide these edges. You’re just kind of build up a little warmth and you’re just going to try to pull those edges down, blend them into the skin as smoothly as possible. Now we’re stipple over top of that with some more latex, at least around the edges. We’re going to leave center area open, so I can cut into that later. Now let's take my plastic fork and I am just going to cut, push into the wax sort of cut a line very carefully right up through the center at the highest point. If you want to make it look like a serrated cut, you can really make these edges jagged. But if want a nice fine slice, you've got to clean up this edge and it looks really nice. The great thing about this is you can do it really quickly and it always looks great. Of course, you can just in stipple it at the top all over again. You got to seal it up. The wax does has a tendency to move and peal up. It glues it down and it seals it. I want to about put about two or three layers on this, but you do have to let it dry in between. You want to wait about two to three minutes in between coats from the texture top dry. So now we’re going to do the same thing that we did on this one where we need to go in with our color match skin tone and we’re going to try to hide all these edges and make that go away. After that we will create the illusion of depths. Now we get back in with gel blood. Fill a little bit of this. Once again you’re just creating illusion and the trick with this stuff is layered. You want to keep going over it, keep going over with the flesh tones, keep going over with the different colors until it totally blends together and it looks real and it's. The main thing it's to just aim to realism. As a finishing touch you may what add some liquid blood, which you can buy or you can make, this stuff is just Karo syrup, Photo-Flo, and food powder. Red food power and red and green, red and blue mixed together. Anyhow, you just go in, and one thing you don't want to do is overdo it. Too much blood. Anyhow, it goes away. It's just basically like you wasted your time on the makeup. You just want to make it look a little wet and maybe a little bit running right about from the edges. Something like this, the blood might be dried, the longer it sits, the more that will happen, but yeah it's very easy to over do it. Just like that, more if you want it, but that concludes our demo on trauma wounds.
