How to Make Fake Blood for Halloween

  • Crimson Blood - This clean, runny blood perfect is for dripping, splattering, and was the easiest to make of all we tested.

  • Combine 1 cup corn syrup with 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup.

  • Stir in red food coloring until you get a deep red color (we used about 8 drops).

  • Oxygen Depleted Blood - This darker, viscous blood is made for smearing (á la the shower curtain in Psycho). It also can look really drippy without actually dripping all over the place.

  • Combine 2/3 cup chocolate syrup, 1/3 cup Tide laundry detergent, with 4 to 6 teaspoons red food coloring.

  • NOTE: This blood includes detergent and IS NOT edible and you should avoid putting it on your skin (do as we say, not as we did).

  • Scabs - This was our favorite and the most realistic looking blood mixture. It will darken slightly as it dries and the texture gets better as it sits.

  • Combine 2 tablespoons corn starch, 4 teaspoon water, 1 teaspoon corn syrup, 1 tablespoon onion flakes, and 4 drops red food coloring.

  • Clump it onto your skin and let dry.

  • Guts - To manipulate the texture of guts, you can use anything from chunky peanut butter to oatmeal.

  • Prepare either the Crimson or Oxygen Depleted blood (above).

  • Tear thin strips of toilet paper and stir into the blood until you\'ve reached your desired texture.
