    If you have never worked with liquid latex before, just be sure to read all precautions on the container.  Generally, you should test a small area of skin just to make sure you don’t have an allergy.  Keep it out of your eyes, nose, mouth, and hair!

    Liquid latex can be applied in layers, (usually dries in 15 minutes or so), and the effects can be very dramatic!  Oozing blisters, torn skin, cuts and gashes, bullet holes, gaping wounds…..just a few of the disturbing effects that you can produce with latex.  A little blood, some coloring with your makeup kit and you are good to go!

    You can also add other materials to the latex tocomplete your zombie look.  How about some cereal flakes covered with latex to produce a nice scabby effect?  Perhaps some rice puffs with layers of latex to create some bleeding carbuncles.

    Some toilet paper with a latex coating can be torn to look like rotting flesh flapping in the cool October breeze. Buy Costumes has all the goods for your zombie makeup needs – and at the best prices…..compare and save!
