From beyond the grave the the screens No.1 SHOCK expert William Castle’s (with the help of his daughter Terry) proudly present his own personal formula for stage blood…
William Castle’s Movie Blood
Karo Corn Syrup
Red food coloring
Blue food coloring
• Combine 1 part water with 3 parts Karo Syrup (Maple or Corn Syrup can be used as well)
• Add drops of red food coloring; mix gently by stirring. Continue adding drops until the shade resembles that of real blood. (Always err on the side of adding less. It’s a lot easier to add more red food coloring than start all over again.)
• Add a teeny, tiny amount of blue food coloring. This helps the blood achieve a much more realistic hue.
• If the blood is too thin (“Dad always thought it was”), add chocolate syrup until you get the desired consistency. The brown color also helps add to the realism of the fake blood. And it tastes good, too.
• Wait 15 minutes; this gives the blood time to thicken.
