How to Make Fake Blood this Halloween
How do we use fake blood in Halloween? Let us count the ways. Fake blood can be used in a Halloween-decorated yard, with a hand holding a bloody eyeball. Fake blood can be used to show “cut off” hands and feet lying on the grass. Fake blood can be draped along Halloween Costumes, or emerge in globs from filled jeans with no body on top. Edible fake blood is used in theatre plays, movies and now – kids Halloween Costumes . Here are some recipes for making fake blood.
Non-edible Fake blood: This is easily made with laundry detergent or liquid soap. Just add as much red food coloring as needed to get the color you want. If it doesn’t work out, add drips of coffee or blue food coloring.
Edible Gravy Blood: Boil your gravy granules according to the package instructions, then add food coloring for added thickness.
Cost Friendly Blood: All this calls for is clear corn syrup poured into a bowl, and then mixed with red food coloring. It works very bloody well. If you want to make it thicker, you can add milk, but that’s optional.
Coagulated Blood: This is true blood, the sort that emerges from a deep wound in dollops of glob. You need red and green food coloring, Oriental ‘Cherry’ dipping sauce, and some water. Measure 2/3 of a cup of the Oriental Cherry sauce and add it to 1/3 cup tap water. Thoroughly mix the two until they are fully diluted. Next, add the red food coloring and a few drops of green food coloring. Stir, then leave it to cool. It’s slime time.
Strawberry Jelly Blood: You will need glycerin (four bottles), strawberry jelly (1 cube), gelatin (1 packet) and red food coloring. To begin, heat the four bottles of glycerin, then add a single cube of strawberry jelly and mix it up. When it is fully mixed, add 1/5 of your packet of gelatin. If you don’t have the color you’re looking for, add red coloring as you see fit and stir it all together.
Flour Power Blood: You will need flour, water and red food coloring. Fill a bowl with one cup of water and add 1-3 tablespoons of flower. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, then heat it. Let it simmer for 25 minutes, or until you get the texture that you want. Leave it to cool. Add the red food coloring last.
