Other than the obvious ways, breaking into a local blood bank and making a withdrawal or storing it up yourself from your victims (we jest), here's a tried and true way for making your own fake blood. But making blood can be tricky, if you want it to look good.

Easy Blood Recipe

      1 pint of clear corn syrup
      1/4 cup of water
      1/4 cup corn starch
      100 drops red food coloring
      8 drops blue food coloring

What You Need Adding Red Food Color A Bottle Of Blood

First remove about a 1/4 cup of the corn syrup from its bottle and replace with an equal amount of water. Add the red and blue food coloring and mix by gently shaking. Now add the corn starch and mix again.

You can experiment with the amount of materials to get the best blood-like consistency. This formula may temporarily stain skin and may permanently stain clothes because of the food coloring used. Because of the natural sugar content of the corn syrup, this blood does not have a very long shelf live. You can extend the life somewhat by storing the blood in the refrigerator until needed. It sure tastes good!

There are also many types of pre-made blood that can be purchased at this time of year. Our favorite is by Bloody Mary. It's thick, looks like real blood and believe it or not, doesn't stain. It washes off easily and is not sticky. This can be found at www.dearbloodymary.com
