Band Saw Laceration – Final Assessment

For our final assessment for semester one we had to create an injury that would have been occurred within a workshop in college. For my assessment I decide to try and recreate a wound created by a band saw. Overall I am happy with my final effect although I did go over the top with the blood splatter with i now know for next time. This kind of effect could be used in film or television. Below are a few pictures of my final assessment.

Yorkshire Scare Grounds

Back in October, i had my first work experience at the Yorkshire Scare Grounds ( here are the links to their Website, Twitter and Facebook). My class mates and I got an opportunity to go down to the scare ground in Wakefield and help out with doing the make up for the zombies that would be taking part in the scare grounds scenario of a Zombie Apocalypse. To create the zombies we used Kryolan Grease Paints, Glynn McKays bruise gels, Glynn McKays Wound Filler,Glynn McKays Congealed Blood, Fake Blood and Latex. Below are a few pictures of  the zombies me and my lovely friend Bex created .

Laceration on the Hand

After practicing lacerations and mangled thumbs  in class, i decided to have a practice myself at home and created my own laceration on the hand. I created the laceration using Grimas Derma Wax, Glynn Mckay Bruise Gels (dark red) and Fake blood. Below are some pictures of the laceration i created as well as the method to recreate it.

Mangled Thumb

As part getting to know our special effects kit and learning basic techniques we were shown how to create a mangled thumb.  To create a mangled thumb there has to be a range of a few lacerations and cuts to multiple deep lacerations to give it  a realistic look. To create the mangled thumb we used Grimas Derma Wax, Glynn McKay bruise gel (dark red) and fake blood mine was home made or you can buy pre- made fake blood. Below are some pictures of my mangled thumb and the method on how to recreate it.

Method

  • Build up the Derma Wax around the thumb (works well on bony areas of the skin use a wet wipe to help smooth the wax and also helps making it easier to work with)
  • After building up enough wax use a toothpick to carve into the wax to create wounds 
  • Paint onto the wound by using GM dark red bruise gel.
  • To add to the effect you can also add a small amount of fake blood.

Bruises using Glynn McKay Bruise Gels

After learning to create bruises using a bruise wheel we moved on to creating them using Glynn McKay bruise gels. When using the bruise gels i found that they created a realistic new bruise but i struggled to create an old bruise using them. When creating new bruise you need to use red, purple and blue bruise gels. To create old bruises you need to use yellow, brown and green bruise gels. Below are some pictures of new bruises using the bruise gels. Below are some pictures of new and old bruises using bruise gels.

Method

New Bruise

  • Start by applying light red (not too much) to the skin and push the product around.
  • Add a small amount of blue on to the red and blend out.
  • Add a small amount of purple to the red and blue and blend out.
  • Lift of any colour by using a wet wipe

Old Bruise

  • Start by applying yellow to the skin and push the product around.
  • Add a small amount of brown to the yellow and blend out.
  • Add a small amount of green to give the bruise definition.
  • Add a small amount of blue (very small amount) and blend out
  • Lift of any colour by using a wet wipe.
