  • Fake blood recipes

    I've got a halloween party on wednesday and I'm going as a bloody/zombie nurse. After searching everywhere in town today I couldn't find any decent fake blood so decided to make my own. Anyone know any good easy recipes for making fake blood? The more realistic the better! Thanks.

    Red food colouring, water and a bit of cornflour?

      I'm clever, I just don't have the qualifications to prove it!
      I can, I will, I must succeed!

      "I guess it's fairly simple to pull women in a club. You stand at the door of a club (on the inside), wait until a woman is passing by outside, grab her arm or sleeve or whatever and just pull.

      Whether that would turn out well in the end, of course, is another matter."

        Yeah, just experiment. Look it up on google. In particular, look for film-making websites, because they usually know how to do it properly.

        Add a bit of chocolate sauce to the mixture above. One of the main mistakes people make is making the blood look too bright, which makes it look fake. Real blood has a slight brown tone and is darker than red food colouring will be.

        Here's a few different recipes.

        ETA: snap!

          Halloween Blood and Food Colours

          Hi guys, I know it's an old thread but you never know how useful this might be to someone. A friend of mine runs an ebay shop called kitchen-chemistry and each year he puts up a special pack of halloween food colours in powdered form. You can find it here,

          have a good halloween anyway...
