No humans were harmed in the making of this workshop! With the guidance of our crew, learn how to mix your own fake blood & create convincing wounds with special effects make-up.

Overview

Our crew have been slipping and sliding on faux blood and loose limbs since the days of Braindead (1992). Learn the art of crafting convincing special effects by mixing blood and sculpting your own scars and scrapes.

No experience or tools necessary. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm!
