Now we're going to go back into our latex areas on the face. We're going to go back in with some red makeup. What I suggest is here keep it in the latex. This is not a dripping wound. This is not a recently deceased person. Actually, it's somebody who's recently come back to life. You want to kind of put it just in the center. Basically what the latex has done is it has built up a big gauge wound. In this case, actually, the body has been stitched back together. We want to have some red at the center of it. This is not a nice cosmetic job. This is somebody working. Well come on, Frankenstein himself was not necessarily the most sane individual. As you're going through, you don't always have to have a really bright dollop of red paint. I find you start off right and then taper it to more faded red, which is going to mix in more with green and even some of the black. It ends up with more of a realistic flare. You don't want everything to be bright red. Otherwise, it's going to kind of take away from the overall effect. You want some darker areas going throughout the lacerations on the face.
