This year I have a couple of clowns with blood on their costumes. (Both costumes came this way). My display is out the entire month of October. I'm afraid the rain is gonna wash the blood to a nasty pink color. Any ideas how to keep that from happening?????? My first idea was Scotchguard........which did NOT work. Any help is greatly appreciated 馃檪馃檪

UV protectant spray may help, but you'll need to do a test on fabric as it's not generally the right usage (may make the fabric stiff and shiny).
^no idea if this is a great product, but this is similar to what I am thinking about (UV/weather protection and comes in a mat, gloss and semi gloss finish I believe), would also need to check it for yellowing as I'd really be upset if it caused things too look terrible.

It it was me, I would just re-apply blood spatter using a red enamel paint, probably using a bottle with a brush and flicking it at the prop or dripping it for a bit more control. Enamel paints have more staying power and should stay glossy looking (like fresh blood) a bit better than other paints.

But again, anything suggested you may want to test on a piece of scrap fabric and let it sit outside for a month - if it looks okay through June/July, it's likely going to do well in October.


There's nothing that will be a permanent solution tho; sun and rain is brutal. It will destroy everything if left out long enough. So may want to picture things looking ragged and abandoned as an eventual goal - it can work well for a Halloween display! ;)

I've never used it, only know OF it, Permablood. Several sites sell it in various quantities so check around on pricing.


PERMA-BLOOD HAS BEEN REFORMULATED! Our new formulation keeps all of the qualities you loved but removes the parts you didn't! Perma-Blood can be thinned with water and still dries bright red, glossy, and flexible. Perma-Blood is now COMPLETELY WATER PROOF and much more UV resistant! Perma-Blood may look different in the bottle or while drying but the dried color will match. You may need to update your application techniques to get the same look as before. We have tested many variables but we can't test for everything so please email [email protected] with any issues you may have with the new formula. ENJOY!

Perma-Blood is the haunt industries' BEST blood paint, period. Most blood paints dry pink or brown or don't dry at all. Perma-Blood dries bright red and glossy to always appear fresh. It dries completely tack free and is flexible. That makes Perma-Blood great for use on walls, props, and even costumes. Perma-Blood is already in use in haunted attractions all over the United States and all over the world. It has even been featured in Modern Marvels on the History Channel, on many of the costumes for the hit movie Zombieland and AMC's groundbreaking series The Walking Dead. With sizes ranging from 4 ounces to 55 gallons you can get as much or as little as you'd like. Find out why so many attractions are already using this great product to really bring their scenes to life.

Perma-Blood is not intended for use in make-up.
