There is a science to making the most realistic-looking blood. Put on your scientist safety glasses and get ready for a little experimentation.
Most of the recipes below require only a few ingredients, but don’t get caught up in the exact measurements. It’s all about adding a little of this and a little of that until you get the right color and consistency.
This fake blood will also be safe to dribble a little out of your mouth, because they are completely edible. But many will stain, so be prepared to look a little funny on November 1st and don’t rub it on clothing you don’t want permanently bloodied. You can wash everything with OxiClean® – it does a great job to remove stains.
Use a white towel, napkin or your skin to test the blood. It will look differently in the blender than it does on your skin. We think blood is red, but it is really reddish-brown. It also isn’t see-through or watery.
