Different blood types – Rhys Crane

Blood making – different types

Simple fake blood

You will need:

  • washing up liquid (cheap so no bubbles)
  • Corn starch
  • Red food colouring
  • Corn syrup

 

 

Add a reasonable amount of corn syrup into a bowl. Add a few squirts of washing up liquid to help with the gooey consistency. Add a few drops of red food colouring to get the bloody colour. If the mix is too runny, add corn starch to help thicken it up.

 

Peanut butter blood (edible)

You will need:

  • Peanut butter
  • Corn syrup
  • Red food colouring (optional blue as well)
  • Corn starch

 

 

Add a reasonable amount of peanut butter into a bowl/container.  Then add corn syrup into the bowl slowly whilst mixing to gain the right consistency. Once the consistency is found, add red food colouring to give it the bloodier look. If you, however, feel like the consistency is too thin, add corn starch to thicken it up a little. Obviously the more you add, the thicker it’ll get.

 

Ketchup blood (edible)

You will need:

  • Tomato ketchup
  • Water
  • Red food colouring
  • Corn syrup

 

 

Put 3 or 4 tablespoons of tomato ketchup into a bowl. Then add 200ml of water into the bowl with the ketchup. Add a few drops of food colouring and a tablespoon of corn syrup for consistency. Mix well together to create a realistic blood colour and consistency.

The blood type we used for our opening sequence is the simple fake blood (the first one) because it was the one that was most realistic when making it. Also, it was the one which we created that was most consistent to reproduce as we wasn’t able to keep it preserved to when we next filmed due to the time difference between them.
