Gore Make-Up is a unit that I teach every chance I get to my students. Whether this be in drama class as part of the curriculum or when beginning Macbeth in English (with the bleeding soldier intro)...I do this because this is a unit/exercise that will engage EVERY student and keep them hooked! I've used this very simple procedure for fake blood and bruises with my students for years. It is a crowd pleaser and doesn't come at a large cost to the teacher!
For those who wish to do actual gashes and objects protruding from the students' skin...stay tuned for a more in depth lesson on that.
