I'm John P. Funk, with the Cosmic Funk Studio, and I'm going to talk to you, about how to make fake body parts, so in the production of my short horror film, we had many different props and things that needed to be made, on almost no money, so use industrious means to make your fake body parts. PVC Pipe, you can get at the hardware store. It's very cheap, inexpensive, easy to use. Packing foam, that I recycle, you can get them various places. You can get it at a Goodwill. You can find an old cushion, and cannibalize the foam out of it, and also, an old discarded shirt helps, so here I have demonstrated the sleeve of the shirt, for making the fake arm, which has the packing foam inside of it, and then the PVC pipe, which will allow it to bend, if you need it to do that, so, and duct tape obviously, to help keep it closed, or you can just use a safety pin to do the same thing, so we're going to actually demonstrate the effect, in the clip shown here, and that's how you make a fake body part, out of easy to obtain, recycled materials.
