Homemade Blood Recipe / Formula –
I have been researching formula's to make my own blood and found several different websites that have many different recipes. Many of you have already made your own blood and I would like it if you would post what has worked best for you. Today I am going to experiment with the following recipe:
1. Combine 1 part water with 3 parts corn syrup.
2. Add red food coloring and mix gently by stirring. Continue adding drops until the shade resembles that of real blood. Add a small amount of blue food coloring to achieve a more realistic shade.
3. Add a thickener.
Dry thickener - Add sifted flour or corn starch to your mixture, and gently mix it all again. You may get small lumps forming at the top of the mixture. Wait about a minute and they will float to the top where you can remove them.
4. Let the mixture sit for ten minutes in a warm environment. This will give it some time to thicken. And then you can freak people out with it, it is a lot of fun. Note: this recipe yields blood that is very sticky initially, especially in hair.
