How to: Severed Finger
This is how I made this severed finger, having picked up a few tips online and adding a few of my own techniques. 1.  I coated my whole finger in liquid latex using a disposable paintbrush.  Once this was dry, I added another layer and repeated the process until  my finger was entirely covered and thick enough to not tear easily. 2.  Once dry, I then coated the whole thing in talcum powder. This is  usually done with finishing powder, but I found that talc was more  effective. This stops the latex from sticking to itself! 3. I  then carefully peeled the prosthetic off my finger so that the inside  was now the outside - so that the prosthetic picked up all of the  natural lines and fingerprints on my finger.4. I then filled the inside with cotton wool. 5. Taking a makeup sponge, I then gently applied liquid foundation to the prosthetic to give a more realistic skintone.6.  I then sealed the end of the prosthetic with a thin coat of liquid  latex. You can do this before step 5, as it’ll need painting afterwards  anyway!7. I then used different makeup to make the finger look  more realistic. I added black facepaint on a stippling brush and applie  around the nail (the character that I will be using this for is very  dirty most of the time!). I also applied the black around the knuckle to  deepen the lines, and fake blood at the severed end.8. I then made sure that the end was completely covered!9. Finished!

How to: Severed Finger

This is how I made this severed finger, having picked up a few tips online and adding a few of my own techniques.

1. I coated my whole finger in liquid latex using a disposable paintbrush. Once this was dry, I added another layer and repeated the process until my finger was entirely covered and thick enough to not tear easily.

2. Once dry, I then coated the whole thing in talcum powder. This is usually done with finishing powder, but I found that talc was more effective. This stops the latex from sticking to itself!

3. I then carefully peeled the prosthetic off my finger so that the inside was now the outside - so that the prosthetic picked up all of the natural lines and fingerprints on my finger.

4. I then filled the inside with cotton wool.

5. Taking a makeup sponge, I then gently applied liquid foundation to the prosthetic to give a more realistic skintone.

6. I then sealed the end of the prosthetic with a thin coat of liquid latex. You can do this before step 5, as it’ll need painting afterwards anyway!

7. I then used different makeup to make the finger look more realistic. I added black facepaint on a stippling brush and applie around the nail (the character that I will be using this for is very dirty most of the time!). I also applied the black around the knuckle to deepen the lines, and fake blood at the severed end.

8. I then made sure that the end was completely covered!

9. Finished!
