Teen Creates Some Gruesome And Gory Homemade Horror FX That Are Disturbingly Realistic

If a career in horror FX doesn't happen to this self-taught teen makeup artist then there really is no justice in the world. Amanda Prescott from Ansonia, Connecticut began trying out various grisly special effects when she was just 12 using DIY scar wax.

Now 17-years-old she creates gruesomely realistic concoctions including chopped off hands, gaping arm holes, broken bones, mangled fingers, brutalised feet—all sorts of gory and convincing FX. Which is not only very impressive, considering she taught herself, but no doubt means she's in great demand at halloween.

"The first special-effects piece that I made I did not know what I was doing." Prescott told Barcroft TV. “I found old putty in a Halloween kit and I spread it around my arm and I took a pencil and drew a line in it. I took a picture and I sent it to my friends and they thought it was real. From that point on I was so interested.”

The more involved pieces like surgical wounds can take up to four hours to do, sculpting the bone, muscles, fat, and skin. While the smaller type of cuts can take as little as five or ten minutes.

She posts most of her creations to Instagram to her 23K followers where people comment on how damn good she is. Although she says her school friends aren't always impressed—some of them flinch when she shows them a creation. Which is understandable considering how real they look.

Her talents aren't going to waste either, as she plans on turning the hobby into a career in SFX. “What I’m planning next is to go off and do four years at university to get my bachelors in studio arts while at the same time freelancing." she explains. “After I achieve that I’m going to a special-effects makeup school to be certified as a professional makeup artist.”

Check out some of her creations below. Head to her Instagram for more.
