Blood Gel can be a cheap and powerful way to make your FX wounds stand out. When necessary, I like to keep everything on a low budget specially easy do it yourself make-up FX.
-Red Food Dye
-Blue Food Dye
Yes, thats it. Now take a glob of Vaseline out and put it in a zip lock back or some sort of container you have lying around the house. Next, mix the Red Dye into the vaseline, and mix it up.
You have a good looking mix so far, but we want the blood to be darker. This part you have to be careful with, so put a drop of Blue Dye into the Vaseline. To much blue and you will get more purple the dark red, so really be careful mixing. You may need another drop, so add the Blue Dye until you reach your desired color.
That’s it. You can now add this mix you made into you wounds to help pullnof that realistic look your going for.
Hope you enjoyed, and have fun..

– fake blood
I purchased Ben Nyes wound kit whitch came with skin gel, scar gel, and blood gel. I used the skin gel instead of elmers glue, but for cheap you can use elmers glue.
First, determine where you want your wound, and prepare your toliet paper. I have double layer toliet paper so I split the paper into two different layers. I chose my face for where I wanted to apply the wound. Take your glue or skin gel and squirt some on your finger then rub on skin then apply toliet paper over glue. Next, rub more glue over that layer.
Now you will want to keep repeating this process till you can get your desired look, and by this I mean how deep you want your wound to be.
Get a tooth pick or something to cut out an area where you want your wound. I do a scratching motion to cut a slit out until I reach the skin.
Now that you have your cut out, grab your black make up and apply it to the skin inside your wound. This will help give depth to your wound.
Now take your fake blood, and dab small globs inside your wound. Also, take some toliet paper and use it to dab your fake blood around your wound to give it a more infected look.
Later I will post a how to on making fake blood, and blood gel that will work great for your wounds.
You may need to apply more make up to create more depth.
Cover up.. use cover up to get rid of the shiny service and to blend the wound in with your skin tone.
That’s it for now. Hope this helps. If you got any ideas please comment.
