DIY your own FAKE BLOOD!

Fake blood is a necessity in Special Effects Makeup. While there is a wide variety of fake blood available for purchase, why not try making your own.

Most recipes call for a mixture of water, corn syrup, liquid food coloring, and corn starch for your basic "fresh" blood look. For darker, murkier aged blood, you can include coffee grounds, chocolate syrup, and even barbeque sauce! The results are dangerously realistic ... and delicious too!

Ive included a popular YouTube video below to get you started on your own recipe!
