How do you apply costume makeup to look like burned skin?

Fabricating Burned Skin - Costume Makeup Application

To apply costume makeup using our costume make-up kits, use a sponge tp apply a thin layer of liquid latex to the desired area. Allow the latex to dry thoroughly. If you want the lok of thicker skin in the burned area, add more latex. All the latex to dry thoroughly. Notice the deep wrinkles achieved with several layers of latex applied. Roll back parts of the latex to simulate the peeling, roughed-up look of burned skin. Paint with foundation and cream liners. Stipple maroon, blue and black cream liner around the burn. For an even more realistic and gory look, add stage blood.
