Severed Thumb

I have been asked kindly by Team Pixie if I would like to post on my blog some make-up how-tos. I found the idea great as it will give my reader and I some inspiration and techniques for this Halloween. Enjoy the "Severed Thumb"


Roll the prosthetics wax into a sausage and then join the ends to make a ring of wax. Press the ring of wax into position; making sure the skin is clean and dry.


Using a tiny bit of moisturiser on your fingertip (enough to stop the wax sticking to your finger and no more) blend the outside edges of the ring of wax, you should not be too precise as sight rough edges look more realistic.


Give the wound a jagged edge, and with the bruise wheel add the bruising effect using a make-up brush.


Don't forget to add bruising to the other fingers and nails on the hand.


Add a bit of cotton wool to the centre of the wound.


Add fake blood to the centre of the wound.

With the wounded finger bent hold a few sheets of tissue paper to cover the rest of the finger.

Um...EWWWWWWWWWW! Actually, even the shot of the cotton in the "wound" is really creepy lol :)
