fake blood

4 ingredient horror.

fake blood is a terrifically fun mess to make. here's a great list of different methods, depending on what look you're going for. this is the second recipe on the list- it will be used as part of a costume, including the face, so it needed to be non-toxic (as non toxic as 1/2 a bottle of food coloring can be), and wash off. it photographed brighter than reality, but ended up very dark and realistic. it's a sticky mess, so i poured it back in the karo syrup bottle and will splatter it on myself once i get to the party. it didn't stain my skin at all- but certainly it will stain everything else.

fake blood:

  • 1 bottle of light karo syrup
  • 115-130 drops of red food coloring
  • 3 heaping Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

  • pour karo syrup into a deep bowl (spout helps). whisk in food coloring until syrup is a bright deep red. add sifted cocoa powder, 1 Tbl at a time, until syrup turns a realistic shade of blood red. sifting is important, because it's hard to whisk out the lumps.
  • sift in the corn starch and whisk until well combined.
