TIP: Here’s an easy way to make veins using red cotton or wool. This technique has been around for many years but I’ve never seen anyone use it directly on skin. Pull some red wool apart so you see the individual fibers. Stick them down to your skin with prosaide or latex. Use a needle to adjust the shape while the glue is still wet. I made a quick infected zombie bite using this technique but you could use it anywhere.

Double-Sided Spirit Gum & Spirit Gum Remover with Mess-Free Applicators!

Order on Etsy here.


Traditional applicators are like nail polish brushes and are often messy, giving you too much of the product and wasting it!  This applicator squeezes through a stopper on its way out, only depositing a small amount on the foam tip.  This allows for saving valuable product and precision application.  On the other side is a spirit gum remover.  You can either use the applicator tip, or also hold a cotton ball or Q-tip and deposit some of the liquid onto it (it will flow slowly out of the tube for you).


– Adhering lace-front wigs, lace beards/facial hair
– Adhering special FX makeup
– Great for theatre, cosplay, special FX, everyday wear of wigs.

Experimented with a few different effects last night on Halo: Reach, ranging from in-game special effects to land mines and kill balls. Besides the shot in the middle, these effects are unique to any shot I’ve done before. They give a infrared-esque effect to the shots. I’m going to continue to experiment with other effects to add some variety and uniqueness to the blog. I hope you like them. 😃
