    Default Fake blood / fresh blood for corpse

    so I promised someone a tutorial on making realistic blood the can goo up a corpse nicely. this recipe was developed after reading numerous webpages on spfx and theater makeup etc. etc. etc...

    I took several of the most common elements and tweaked them and combined till I came up with this. Hope it helps.

    this is actually a two for one tutorial for anyone who wants to make realistic looking costume blood that is digestible.

    things you will need:

    Corn syrup ( light )
    red food coloring

    Blue food coloring

    Plain gelatin (NOT JELLO!!)


    ok this is real simple

    first we need to make our blood

    take your corn syrup
    add 20 drops of red food coloring and 4 drops of blue
    per 1/2 cup cornsyrup

    stir together with a fork.

    and there you have it .
    ok now this works great for costume and prosthetics but sadly takes forever to dry so I needed something that would set quick and make it look wet still
    so....

    open you gelatin and add to a microwave safe dish
    add water per the instructions ( a little bit less is ok just make sure it is enough to cover the gelatin powder)
    microwave until melted ( my microwave does this in 20 sec. on high)

    add enough of your fake blood to color the gelatin DARK.
    smear where you want it with a paintbrush.
    you need to work quick because as it cools it sets however, you can simply re melt it as needed.
    just remember all of this is water soluable so it is NOT waterproof. seal it after it is dried if this is an outdoor prop.
    this is the same stuff I used for the blood on my zombie heads last year. if you want to see how it looks they are in my folder.

    hope this helps.
    what do you see..... alone in the dark, when the demons come?

    That is fantastic! All Items are edible.. that gives me some ideas... mohahahah (uh thats supposed to be an evil laugh). I acutally use Karo Light syrup in a mixed punch drink. The "blood" dripping in would be a nice touch.
