Hello, my name is Keegan Hitchcock from Body Art by Keegan and we're here in Fort Lauderdale at 1 Model Place Studios. In this clip I'm going to show you how to make some wounds. We've all ready her bruised up on this side here. But we're going to do something a little nastier on the other side. Turn towards me. So we are going to start with our red. Going to make her skin look a bit irritated. Anytime there's a wound or an injury. The skin surrounding it is probably going to be irritated. So we're going to make a that a little pinkish a little sore. Just to start out and blend that around there. We're going to make it even darker in the center. Still using our red. Mixing a little tiny bit of the maroon color here. Just to be more intense more like a blood color. Turn a little bit more. So we are going to use that to make a cut. You don't need to have your cut perfect. If you were to be cut it's not going to be a straight line. It's going to be thicker in some places. Usually thinner around the edges. So you can see we've got it thick right here in the middle. Kind of thin out there on the edge. Going to give a little bit of the bruised look as well. So we're going to take a little bit of that blue and purple and just dab it on there. With our stipple here and blend it a little bit. Just to try and break it up. You eye almost doesn't even know what it's looking for. But if you add those in there it gives it a little more realistic look. Chances are whatever hit you to cause that injury probably going to bruise the skin a little bit as well. So then we're going to take our black to make it look deeper. Remember lighter colors bring things forward. Darker colors set them back. So we're going to use the black on here. Make it look deeper. Go right in the center there with the black. We're not to go all the way out to the edges because we just want the center to be the deep part. We're going to go back with our red. Blend the black and the red together. All right then we are going to take a little bit of our stage blood and dab it on. We're not using the drippy kind. This is a blood paste. It's going to go on there it's going to stay wet looking it's not going to drip. So we're going to dab that right there on the middle. Make it look shinny, bleeding. Drip a little bit of it down and there you are. This is Keegan Hitchcock. Thank you for watching.
