Fake blood recipe:

  • Dissolve the coffee in some hot water.
  • Pour the glycerin into a bowl (depending on how much blood you want)
  • Add eyeshadow and coffee solution until you get a realistic looking mixture.
  • To make it thicker add corn flour.

Don’t put your fake blood in your mouth, though!
