How do you hide from the undead during a zombie apocalypse?
The answer is simple, learn how to blend in, with zombie make up.

You will need the following:

Make Gelatin:

  • Gather:

  • To Make:
    • Mix 1 part Gelatin Mix, 2 parts Sorbitol, 2 parts Glycerine in a microwave safe dish.
    • Cover and microwave 2 – 2.5mins.  Stir well and microwave again for 2mins.
    • Continue to heat and stir until all granules are dissolved.  Aprox 10 – 12 mins total.
    • CAUTION: be very careful not to overheat mixture!  DO NOT microwave more than 2.5 mins at a time!
    • Once dissolved, carefully pour mixture into ice cube trays and allow it to cool and harden.
  • To Use:

    • Place a few cubes in a microwave safe bowl.
    • Microwave 10 seconds at a time to soften gelatin.
    • CAUTION: be very careful not to overheat mixture!  DO NOT microwave more than 10 seconds at a time!
    • Mix using a Wood Craft Stick and add food coloring as needed.
    • Check temperature prior to application to ensure you will not burn your zombie.
    • Use the Wood Craft Stick and apply gelatin to your zombie’s skin.  You can create scars, gashes, torn skin, or bone effects.  Tear apart a Cotton Ball to add depth and a torn flesh effect.  You can use Liquid Latex to help hold everything in place.
