No picture so I don't know what it looks like, but you could use colored piping gel or royal icing.

I used red gel in a tube and darkened red candy melts. icon_biggrin.gif

If you want a real blood look I'd use something like piping gel or maybe even corn syrup colored red. It will be translucent.

I agree the red dyed corn syrup works really well, it has the consistency of blood. icon_biggrin.gif
