Stage 2

Place wound in desired location so you get an idea of how big the wound area will be. Remove the wound. Using the foam wedge, add clotted red grease-paint makeup, and injury wheel maroon makeup around and slightly under the edges of the wound. If desired, for greater adhesion, spirit gum can be added to the wound location and the back of the wound. Let spirit gum dry until it feels sticky before final placement of wound.

Materials Needed:
• Infected Nasco laceration
• Clotted red makeup
• Injury wheel maroon makeup
• Foam wedges
• Spirit gum (if needed)
