This young special effects artist has mastered the effect of the open wound, revealing the steps in this video.

Isobelle Carmichael, 21, showcased her SFX skills in her home studio based in Calgary, Canada, with a gory scratch mark on her neck.

Isobelle shows the makeup and method on how to apply the effect with the he application tool.

She outlines the areas where the wound will be, blending it with her skin using Vaseline, before using the colour and viscous red makeup that simulates the bleeding.

She finishes with dabbing the area with blood spatters to complete the spooky look.

Isobelle said: “People have been both impressed and disgusted by this.”
