Fake blood for Halloween is easy to make with stuff you have around the house. One of the widely used recipes for fake blood comes from a concoction made for a 1979 movie, “The Evil Dead.” The stuff is still used today, according to The Guardian on Oct. 30.
Here are some variations of this recipe to create just the right color and texture of blood you need for your Halloween costume:
Fake blood bright red:
Mix ¼ cup of corn syrup with a few red drops of food coloring at a time until you get the color you want. This gooey sticky blood will stay put, but it will still give you a few drips before hardening.
Fake blood darker red:
Use the recipe above, but add a few drops of chocolate syrup.
• To thicken the two recipes above add a little bit of peanut butter to the mix. You can also add gelatin.
Fake lumpy and hardening blood: Mix a flour and water to the consistency of pudding and then drop red food coloring into the mixture until it is the desired color. Drip this blood all over and give it a few minutes to harden.
Fake Wounds with fake blood:
For lumps needed to resemble open wounds, make a paste you can mold using more flour in the water. Then mold the bright red bloody-looking substance into a wound.
Fake Wound more detailed: To make it even more realistic, separate your mixture into two bowls. Leave one bright red, but add some chocolate syrup or more red food coloring to the other to make it a darker red. When making the wound have the dark red in the center and the light red around the outside of the wound.
