How To Make a Bullet Hole Makeup Tutorial


Watch special effects makeup artist Josh Turi apply a gunshot entry and exit wounds using a silicone gel encapsulated appliance, Skin Tite silicone, and Smooth-On's Ultimate Blood Kit. Ultimate Blood has unique color, thickening, and thinning additives so it can be used for both deep and superficial wounds. We also give our model a bloody nose, cheek scratches, and a broken nose using just makeup and Ultimate Blood. Using Ultimate Thinner, we even use Ultimate Blood for the blood spray to complete the effect on camera.
