How to Make skin using a Gelatine Based prosthetic?

This is test footage and a blood scene for an upcoming Horror short film I am producing called 'The Noise'. I was wondering if any of the makeup artists in this group could help me. We are trying to produce, latex free skin. I was wondering if anyone had a homemade gelatin skin recipe we could use to help us create some skin props for our actors. We have moved away from the commercial skin recipes for cost but also because many of them have latex in them which is toxic for one of our performers.

Nicholas, and sian, thanks for the feedback. We got the gelatin to work and it looks great.... we seem to have a lot more control over our ability to produce the prosthetics with the formula we have come up with and less likely to kill one of our actresses with latex... great feedback'
