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.

  1. 1

    Pour five bottles of white glue into a large bowl.

  2. 2

    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.

  3. 3

    Add three drops of red food colouring and one drop of black food colouring. Mix to make a dark red.

  4. 4

    Pull out the large substance as it hardens. Set it on a piece of waxed paper.

  5. 5

    Mold the shape of the liver. A basic liver includes a large rounded section and a small section, forming a rounded triangle.

  6. 6

    Set it in the refrigerator overnight. The substance will harden but retain a slightly soft texture.

  7. 7

    Keep the fake liver in an airtight container when it is not in use. This prevents it from drying out.

Tips and warnings

  • Use pictures of a liver as you mould the shape. The substance will be like putty and can easily mould into different shapes.
