DIY Prosthetic gelatin Hey Guys! I have probably mentioned it 100 times, but my absolute favorite SFX Makeup tool is a quick and easy to make prosthetic gel that is made from 3 ingredients easily found at your local grocery store. With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to make a quick video so you can get started on your next look!

3 Ingredient Special Effects Prosthetic Gel

You will need:

  • 1 Package of Knox Gelatine (in the baking aisle)
  • 1 TBS water
  • 1 TBS Glycerin (in the first aid section)

Seriously, I cannot express the temperature warning enough. You must let this cool down or YOU WILL BURN YOURSELF AND 1ST OR 2ND DEGREE BURNS ARE NOT FUN. You want to make the hand in the video using your special effects skills, not do it for real because you didn’t wait.

I kid a little… you probably wouldn’t burn your hand that badly, but always, always test it on your skin first, especially if you are applying it to someone else! This can be a great way to pull of fun looks, and it is far more easy on sensitive skin than using latex (which some people have allergies to) or spirit gum and pros aide, since they can be pretty harsh and require special removers.

Be safe, and let the world of sfx open for you!

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Braaaaiiiinnnsssss! Take 2 using flocking powder and fake Halloween blood to dye the prosthetic. The mind is such a beautiful thing!

  • Work in progress. Outlook doesn't look too good for my styrofoam buddy... #zombie #zombiemakeup #brains #workinprogress #halloween
  • #TBT to my first full scale #Halloween DIY for Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. And to think, I made this without a sewing machine! Lots of lessons learned, such as that I needed a thimble (OUCH) and that I really needed to get an actual sewing machine. http://madlikealyce.com/2015/10/09/costume-tutorial-sally-from-nightmare-before-christmas/
  • Road rash makeup! Again, using my favorite prosthetic gel to get those great brush strokes, Ben Nye bruise wheel for color and coffee grounds for the gravel! Good thing I always have plenty on hand.
  • Another black eye! Tried to make a more obvious "impact" on this one. Used my BenNye bruise wheel to pull this together pretty quickly.
  • Practicing bruise makeup! I'm thinking of pulling together an sfx wound tutorial series, what do you think?
  • It's been a long and exhausting month of 55+ hour workweeks and not taking care of myself. It's almost difficult to re-align myself after holding the pedal down for so long. So here is to a lazy Sunday with my best chill buddy. This face isn't new relaxation goal 😂. #lazysundayafternoon #selfcare #timetorelax
  • A few days late, but still inspired by the eclipse! Audrey II hails from one of my favorite musicals, "Little Shop of Horrors" and was a fun one to recreate. Just a little reminder not to buy plants during a solar eclipse. Who else saw the total eclipse?
