Hello every one. It's been a while since I've been on here. Just wanted to share on how to build your own scary zombie with easy step by step pictures. I'm going to start on how to build the hands first. I gotta find the pictures on the body. In the mean time here's how to build the hands and arms. Keep checking back time to time on the new up dates. I'll post up other pictures asap. Please if you have any type of questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for looking and enjoy building your cool zombies.

JiMi

Materials that you will need.

1 Aluminum foil
2 Any type of 1" tape
3 Card board
4 News paper
5 Paper mache mix
6 Thick gauge wire.
7 construction adhesive
8 1" PVC piping
9 Chicken wire.





roll up the news paper into flatten ball shapes to make the palm muscles under the hand.

roll up aluminum foil into small balls for the knuckles.






Rip some small sheets of foil and roll them up into 4'' sticks. Then tape them to the top of the hands. These will be your bones that connect to your knuckles.

also start raping the fingers with aluminum foil as well.

That's really cool.....and it's pretty simple (which I like...lol), and it's a really cool effect. It really does look like a hand you'd find on a corpse...or a zombie :)

I noticed that I didn't post up pictures of me putting the paper on the hands. Its just naked news paper. I work for a huge printing company and able to get non-printed news paper. I made small strips of paper and dipped it into paper mache glue. Just old fashion hot water mixed with flour...
Thanks for the comments.

I used a lot of duct taped and taped the hand to 1" PVC piping as the arm... I'll post up pics asap.
