So for Halloween this year I am dressing up as a zombie. And zombies have flesh wounds right? So what you need for this is some pva wood glue, paper towel, time (haha) brown and purple dark eye shadows, bright red lipstick, dark red lip tint or lip gloss, fake blood and a pencil. You just want to shave or wax any hair on and around the area where you are putting the wound. Then wait a little while other wise it will sting if you put pva glue on freshly shaved skin. Then when you are ready put one layer of the glue evenly over the area. Wait for that to dry and then repeat. After put another layer of glue and then rip up some paper towel (if it is two ply separate the ply’s and use one ply) similar sizes of the wound area. Apply the ripped paper towel to the glue and put on another layer of glue. Repeat 2 more times. When dry you can start ripping into the glue/paper towel to replicate a wound. When ready, start dressing the wound with the dark eyeshadows to look bruised. Then in the center of the wound apply red lipstick and gloss and dab around outside. Apply large amounts of fake blood to finish and adjust anything. For any questions or requests just leave a comment.

Sometimes it can be difficult to get your fire going in your wood stove. Here is what works for me: first, make sure all the old ashes are cleaned out. Then I start with some scrunched up newspapers in the bottom of the box. Next, I layer some kindling that is good and dry. Wet wood will kill your attempts! Next I layer some larger good dry wood. I find the branches are good for this stage. Finally I put a couple of larger pieces on top. One thing you don’t want to do is smother the fire. Let lots of air circulate. I use a long match to get to the back part. Make sure there is good ‘draw’ and air circulation getting to the fire. Close the glass door but not fully shut -I leave it about 1/2″ open. You should see a good fire starting by now. Once it gets going – about 10 mins or so you could add some more wood and shut the door. The wood that I use is mainly poplar and elm. The poplar is great for getting it started and the elm will burn hotter and longer. I hope this helps. I would love to hear your comments and tips on how you get your fire going….
