How do you use zombie skin in latex?
To get the slightly decomposed look of zombie skin, we use a technique called “stretch and stipple”. Put some of the same latex you used to make a wound on your face with a sponge, and then stretch your skin tight while you dry it with a hairdryer. When it’s dry, the latex will wrinkle and give your skin some texture.

Can I put liquid latex on my lips?
Purse your lips together and then pour some liquid latex into a bowl, and with a disposable sponge dab the latex over and around your mouth. Whilst it is still wet, put a strip of tissue paper over the latex and press it down, smoothing it out to get rid of any wrinkles and bubbles. Wait for this to dry.
