fake blood - 9 photos

Lucie is in a bloody mood! (plus a few other fake blood photo)

For the halloween shoot with Lucie, I concocted the fake blood myself with the following recipe:

- one cup of clear corn syrup or sugar syrup

- one table spoon of red food coloring

- one drop of blue food coloring

- a couple of table-spoon of corn starch

- put in a pot and bring it slowly to a boil, to thicken the mix.

The fake blood is edible and can be easily washed, but when kept a long time on the skin, it can leave faint red marking that will last a couple of days.

My fake blood was realistic enough that a police car stopped during the photo shoot, to check that everyone was ok :)
