Stage 1

When starting a moulage, first use an alcohol wipe to clean person or manikin.

Materials Needed:

Stage 2

Place ostomy in desired location so you get an idea how big the wound area will be. Remove the wound. Using the foam wedge and clotted red grease paint makeup, place makeup around and slightly under the edges where the wound will be placed. If desired, for 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.

Materials Needed:
• Clotted red makeup
• Foam wedge
• Paintbrush
• Spirit gum (if needed)
