Draw a border with the adhesive around the area to be ripped off. You may have to tilt your head back or have your "victim" tilt his/her head back so the adhesive doesn't drip. Don't spread the adhesive; make sure it is a raised line. Let the adhesive air-dry, or you can blow on it or use a hair dryer on cool to speed up the process. Draw a second line next to the first line (inside the area to be ripped off) and let dry half way. While the adhesive is still tacky, use the cuticle stick or toothpick to gently scrape the adhesive toward the first line, creating a rough edge.
Using a sponge or foundation brush pat the brighter red all over the area. Alternate between the maroon and black to add depth and create layers of "muscle tissue."
Using your finger or a makeup sponge, dab adhesive in random areas and then press the coffee grounds onto the adhesive to create blood clots. The hollows of the face, cheeks, temples, along the side of the nose, and in the groove of the border are good places for this.
Pat the homemade blood over the area and along the border.
