Burn using jelly, the wobbly kind! ;)

Hi everybody,
I hope i'm posting in the correct category, this is my first ever post on the Stan Winston School website.
I was away at a farm in Ireland at the weekend where they do a massive scare attraction, so I tried a full arm burn using blackberry jelly (smelled lovely), grease paints and fresh scab.  If any of you have any critiques or another technique I can use too as i'm going back over again for Halloween,  I also get to dress up and scare people which is why I love Halloween!!

        I'm not sure if methylcellulose would do any better, but it depends if any insects were attracted to the sugar in the jelly.


         Did you paint your eyelid? If so how'd you keep the red from smearing? 

  • Hey Kore, I've never heard of methylcellulose so therefore haven't used it, does it do the same job?  The insects were fine but i'm not sure as it was quite cold outside but the arm was used for 6-7 hours and was still intact at the end of the night.  I think it's because the sweet smell of the jelly is covered with grease paint then fresh scab and then runny blood.

    Methylcellulose = k-y jelly
  • Ahh Right ok, i'm not sure it would work as it would set and allow to be painted!
    Thanks Christopher Vaughan! :D
