Planning to dress up as a zombie, vampire or gory monster this Halloween? Your costume wouldn’t be complete without a ton of fake blood. It adds that realistic touch that’ll make everyone reel with horror.
You can totally buy fake blood in the shops. But is it worth it if you’re gonna use it only once? The DYI route my be cheaper. Here’s how you can make your own fake blood:
1. Flour and red food coloring fake blood recipe
– 1 tablespoon of flour
– A cup of water
– 2 tablespoons of red food coloring
- Pour the water in a pot and add the flour.
- Stir until the mixture becomes smooth.
- Place the mixture on your range at high heat until it boils.
- Once it does, bring the heat down to minimum and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Let it cool.
- Add the red food coloring to the mixture (I use 2 tablespoons but you can add more or less to achieve the color you want).
2. Glycerin and Red Food Dye Fake Blood
– 60 gr of glycerin
– 60 gr of gelatine
– 2 tablespoons of red food dye
– 55 ml of water
- Mix the ingredient together in a bowl or pan.
- Then, place it on your range until everything’s melted.
- Add the red floor dye (as much as you need to get the color you want; I use 2 tablespoons).
- Now, place the mixture in the microwave for a little while, just to make it softer.
