The fake blood, that you can buy in shops, is usually unconvincing and leaves a heavy mark that requires such a serious cleaning job that you end up drawing actual blood when attempting to remove it.
Well, this non-toxic blood recipe will save you money and is so realistic that your friends will think you require medical attention.
- Honey syrup
- Red food colouring
- Combine 1 part water with 3 parts honey syrup.
- Add the red food colouring and mix gently by shaking or stirring. Continue adding drops until the shade resembles that of real blood. Add a small amount of blue food colouring to achieve a more realistic shade.
- For the thickener – add sifted flour to your mixture, and gently mix it all again.
- Let the mixture sit for ten minutes in a warm environment. This will give it some time to thicken.
