Discover a new way of making gory effects. Guide to Gore is a step-by-step guide to making realistic horror effects with papier-mache. Guide to Gore is an introduction to the art and technique of this amazing process and shows how to a make your favorite horror effects for cinema. Papier-mache has been around for a long time, but it has never been used to make horror effects.  This process is a perfect solution for filmmakers and special effect artists working on an effects-ridden production.

Photos, illustrations and step-by-step instructions

Guide to Gore is the only book of its kind. There are four featured effects, and most are appliances that attach to your body, to look like a part of your body. Not only is this process and the effects explained step-by-step, but there are over 75 illustrations that show you exactly how to make each effect. Author, Chris Kessmann explains the process, shows how to make each effect, introduces a simple mold-making process and explains how to paint the finished effect. The best thing about this process is that the effects are very easy and inexpensive to make—they look realistic too. The effects in Guide to Gore are just the beginning of what you can achieve with this process. Every time you work this process, you will discover new and better ways to make horror effects. Soon, you will master the process, and your effects will look just as good as traditional foam latex effects. Foam latex was the only way to make gory effects, now there are two great ways.

Are you making the next, big zombie movie?

Guide to Gore is for make-up effect artists, filmmakers and horror fans. These effects are perfect for horror movies, or any film that requires special make-up effects. This new process will inspire and change horror movies as we know them. There's no limit to the gore you can put in your horror films. Remember, this process is not the use of foam latex, like that used in motion pictures. You will not use foam latex, plaster, or any of those materials. This new process uses completely different materials and is an entirely different method.  If you always wanted to make gory effects, I encourage you to take a look at our new process.
