Hi there, Although I'm on here as a photographer, my 'day job' is in the Royal Air Force. I'm an instructor, and as part of the course I teach we take the trainees on an exercise. One of the things they have to deal with is an injured person. I'm looking for advice on how to 'make' a realistic looking wound from household items, eg food colouring, vaseline, corn flour etc. Can anyone help???
The reason, we use household items, and that we don't hire a MUA is that, as instructors we feel that a realistic injury adds to the training, however, there is no budget for this! The 'injury' has to be produced at little or no cost (I suppose we could break a trainees leg - oops we're not allowed to say that!). I'll have a look for some gelatine and red food dye and have a play with that. If anyone has anymore tips please let me know.
