Stage 3

The wound should stick lightly to the location naturally. For a greater adhesion, brush spirit gum on wound location and back of wound. Let spirit gum dry until it feels sticky before final placement of wound. Brush liquid latex over entire burn area and let dry.

Materials Needed:
• Spirit gum (if needed)
• Liquid latex

NOTE: Latex is a commonly known allergen - use with caution.

Stage 4

When burn is in final position, add clotted red and blood blister makeup slightly around and on top of the burn(s). Also add a bit of light cream makeup on top of arm. Use foam wedges to blend all makeup above. A craft stick is great for applying the blood blister makeup. Blood modeling wax may help with blending burn edges and skin until a seamless appearance is achieved.

Materials Needed:
• Blood blister makeup
• Blood paste
• Clotted red makeup
• Light cream makeup
• Foam wedges
• Craft stick

Materials Needed:
• Brush
• Foam wedges
• Blood blister makeup
• Blood powder
• Clotted red makeup
• Injury wheel makeup - maroon

Add more clotted red, light cream, injury shades makeup (purple and maroon) on top of the liquid latex and around the whole arm.
