A bruise is an injury of the soft tissues of the skin that results in breakage of the local capillaries and leakage of red blood cells. Blood leaks into tissues under the skin and causes the black-and-blue color. As bruises (contusions) heal, usually within 2 to 4 weeks, they often turn colors, including purplish black, reddish blue, or yellowish green.


Cut the wound to the desired size and shape. Apply wound to trainer/manikin or human model as desired. For added tackiness, use spirit gum. Apply other moulage techniques/makeup as desired.


Wounds will become less tacky with use. Clean wounds with warm water and mild soap.

Dry completely with a clean towel and allow to air dry.


To extend the life of the simulated wound, handle them with care and follow the cleaning and storing procedures. Wounds are delicate and easily tear during removal and application. Store clean, dry wounds in original packaging or on clean, clear, unprinted plastic in a resealable bag.


Makeup used with wounds may stain human models, trainer/manikin, and simulated wound. Use makeup with care.

Solvents and corrosive materials will damage the simulated wounds. Never place wounds on newsprint, printed paper or plastic, or ballpoint pen. These materials will transfer indelible stains.
