  • Cling wrap
  • Liquid latex
  • Body crèmes
  • Snazaroo Face Paint
  • Hair dryer
  • EDUcraft Wood sticks
  • 2 x small Jasart sponges or paint brushes

Tip: If you can’t get your hands on a sponge, use some paintbrushes instead!

How to do it

  1. With the sponge, roughly put down a base colour of your choice in the middle of your/a friends arm.
  2. Next, put a small layer of liquid latex using an ice cream stick of the same spot on your arm.
  3. Grab the cling wrap and place it on your arm moving it around to get a bumpy, wrinkly effect.
  4. With another ice cream stick add another small layer of liquid latex on top of the cling wrap – this will keep it in place.
  5. To speed up the drying process, use a hair dryer on low speed.
  6. Once the latex is dry, get your second sponge and colour your monsters arm with the colour of your choice.
  7. Use your hairdryer to on low speed to dry the final layer of your monster skin.
