    Well, I figured I'd try it before I actually do the haunt. I wasn't so worried about the colors, I just threw them on pretty haphazzardly. I know I can still do the makeup, I was worried more about getting the gelatin correct, so I really just threw some makeup from my "bruise stack" on it. Let me know what you think!

    Good job it looks great! Another suggestion I forgot to mention is that you could do multiple layers of gelatin with different colors. For example, on this one you could do the neon red tint on the base gelatin, and a couple splotches of glow in dark tinted over top (what looks oozy on yours) and would look nice in a 3D attraction. (works better if you have some black between the color to define them too). One of the attractions I have worked for has multiple attractions at one location, and I usually roam through them all, so my makeup needs to be versatile for each of them, and in experimenting came up with some neat results. I've learned so much just from playing with the materials.

    Alrighty Jak thanks for the advice. Now you recommend mixing the UV makeup into the water then adding that to the gelatin correct?

    Yes, I suggest mixing with the warm water so that it disperses easiest in the gelatin.

    I've never tried the gelatin burns, but I needed to make a Freddie Krueger mask. I researched prosthetics and spoke with a costume store owner who told me about Platinum Silicone. This is the same type of stuff they use to make high quality, professional pro's.

    Here's how it turned out:



    Keep in mind, this was my first attempt at using the silicone. It's very easy to work with, but a little expensive. But it does last a long, long time - easily a few seasons! I'd suggest getting the colored silicone, just to make applying makeup over it easier. I used clear that was in reality, more like a translucent whiteish color. Each night, I'd just apply it to my face with spirit gum.
