Nurney -The zombie flesh accessories
So you have your zombie look ready for Halloween or your favorite Zombie walk/Ball but you feel like something's missing. Ever wanted to add a little pizzaz to your zombie routine? Try making a few nurnies.
What's A Nurny?
HELLRAISER's makeup effects creator, Gary J. Tunnicliffe describes them best, "Nurnies are a name in the industry for little rubber gnarly kind of things. Very, very useful in zombie movies to put between wounds for biting apart. You can dress them on creatures; you can dress them in as gore. Very, very handy thing to have."
Use your nurnies anywhere there is a wound
You can use nurnies anywhere there are gashes, cuts and gore. Try hanging the nurny from the edge of a wound, dripping with blood and see if it doesn't put a little zip in your zombie step! A few nurnies and some extra blood are great accessories for any zombie ensemble
It's easy and you can find a free tutorial at the Stan Winston School of Character Arts online.
