I'm thinking red piping gel. Has anyone else done this? I'm wondering if it will be thin enough to actually drip down, or if I need to add water or corn syrup to get the right consistency. Any ideas?
use stage blood:
the "classic" recipe
clear corn syrup
water to thin it a bit
red food color
blue food color
make syrup bright red.
tone it with blue to either artery (less blue) or venous (more blue)
thin to runniness needed.
if too "clear"
cornstarch -- makes translucent
flour -- makes opaque
totally edible -- can even flavor it
it STAINS like the dickens
and just for fun, here's a link to a pdf of other stage blood recipes -- the ones w/ detergent developed to keep the costume people from killing the prop people (stage blood is "props")
Doug, that is such a great idea.
Thank you Doug!
