Couple of surgery shots from our show last weekend in Norfolk.....

Firstly, a nice 'post-spurty' shot, making the first major incision.

Aaaaand a nice close up, retracting hooks in place, just before we role him over to give the audience a better look :twisted:

That looks most impressive though the blood is a little too red maybe a nice mix of red food colouring and Corn syrup or glucose give a nice deep blood colour

Tried various different bloods over the years, shop bought and home made and this one (Grima's 'A') is the best in terms of flow (glucose or corn syrup based ones don't 'spurt' well enough) and overall colour. More realistic, darker ones just don't look 'bloody' enough according to the MOPs. I do sometimes mix some coffee granules in with it though, to thicken and darken slightly.

I'll find out what we use for casualty simulations that stuff looks real as hell (we've confused real paramedics with it)

Frankly that's just unpleasant, and I was eating m' sausage butty at the time.

Well Done!

Cool. Let me know.

One of my MOD collegues used some pics that I took last year to show to his 'crash training' team and one of the new ones was sick :D

Ex girlfriend went on a course for the mountain rescue she does and one picture they showed her was a guy with his jaw blown off. Apparently, he had put a banger in his mouth for a bet. ROFL. Wish I could have seen that.

Wonder if he was related to the guy in Poland who thought he could cure his toothache by putting a gun in his mouth and shooting it out. He won that year's Darwin Award.

I like the way Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is eyeing up his next meal.


Nice shots Matt.

Did the lucky b**ger survive?

Matt, how do you feel about the idea of running a weekend workshop showing people how to recreate wounds like that?

Workshop?

Happy to I guess, if there was enough demand for it. Somewhere like one of David's shows might be the most sensible option. Depends on how people feel about handling raw meat and getting covered in fake blood though :wink:

Sounds like a good idea to me!

Hey, if you can persuade David to allow you to show that at one of his shows, it'll be a huge draw !!

hmmmm splatter times are here again

Hi there,
Like the shots Matt! I'm mostly doing 15th cent surgeon so nice inspiration there! Do you have a pump thing under the patient for the old spurt effect? I've only done dry stuff so far and no blood n guts-eager to learn though!
