For one of my first special effects lesson we were shown a demo on how to create a basic new and old bruise . I found it quite easy to use the bruise wheel to create both these bruises . hear are some pictures of what i crated .
new bruise :
old bruise :
Products used :
Kryolan Bruise wheel (New version with 6 colors )
How to do this :
with a bruise wheel apply light purple in a random shape; apply a small amount of red over this .Then small amount of dark purple for definition and depth. If it dose not look right you could always lift a bit of the color off with a wet wipe
Thanks for looking
