Whether you are creating a hospital drama or a gory horror scene, a fake liver could come in handy for a movie or theatrical production. A realistic liver will make scenes more authentic, and with certain materials, you can move it in a lifelike fashion. Keep the fake liver to use as an annual Halloween prop.
Pour five bottles of white glue into a large bowl.
Add 2 cups of liquid starch into the glue. Use your hands or a fork to mix them thoroughly. Wear a smock to protect your clothes.
Add three drops of red food colouring and one drop of black food colouring. Mix to make a dark red.
Pull out the large substance as it hardens. Set it on a piece of waxed paper.
Mold the shape of the liver. A basic liver includes a large rounded section and a small section, forming a rounded triangle.
Set it in the refrigerator overnight. The substance will harden but retain a slightly soft texture.
Keep the fake liver in an airtight container when it is not in use. This prevents it from drying out.
Use pictures of a liver as you mould the shape. The substance will be like putty and can easily mould into different shapes.
