I've heard of fakirs that could "cry" glass beads but has anyone ever heard of a performer crying tears of blood? If anyone has some deeper insight into this please feel free to PM me or let's start another post in the Secret Sessions thread.

I have been thinking on this one for a day now trying to come up with a way to not be harmful or toxic, I can think of a cou-ple ways provided you can create the performance where you get a wee bit of cover, like the glass tear, I do believe that the hands/fingers are carefully brought near the eye to manipulate the production... I think it would depend on what the performance script calls for and how fl;exible it is.
While it is not something I have seen done other than in the movies, I think it could be done sans camera work.

Kay,

I don't know what you've come up with yet, but the only thing I can think of is something along the lines of a clear liquid, that can be applied just alongside the bridge of the nose by the ear/tear duct, where it would dry in a colorless, near invisible patch, that when brought in contact with water, or saline (tears), turns a dark red. I don't know of anything like that offhand, but wouldn't be totally surprised if we came up with something.
Unless you prefer goldenrod facial skin and baking soda tears !! hehe Smile

Graftobian (a make-up company)sells a product called Magic Blood--a water activated powder that is (supposedly)invisible on the skin...

Here's their page listing all of their blood products: http://www.graftobian.com/index5.htm

I've played with it, and it works fairly well, although it's messy and not entirely invisible if you are very fair-skinned... Although I don't have the jar in front of me, I would guess you could carefully brush it near your eyes without harm--check the label though!

It might work for this type of thing, if you could cry on command or otherwise simulate tears....

Ahhh are we not all method magi!?! of course we can cry on command! (or put the pin Inside the TT for ease of crying...The powder looks like it might work, the question is will tears set it off, or will the saline change the reaction checking the label is good for the get near the eyes idea, though if placed a littel bit down along the bridge of the nose probably just as effective. I may have to order some and give it a try!

Crying on command can be difficult, especially if people around you are laughing and having fun.

Thanks for all your input gang.....the graftobian site looks promising and I'll probally get some powder and play around. If this post stays alive long enough I'd love to hear how progress goes for anyone who tries this as well. I have a feeling when this is worked out it'll prove to be a quite powerful and moving bizarre piece!

This could make someone rich! Use A&B blood... Paint part A UNDER your eye and let it dry. Then a couple of drops of part B to run down the cheek. Think about this for crucifiction events and other stigmata. I expect to get my hand slapped...

I'd never heard of that, so I looked it up and found some here:

Another nice alternative !

Here's my question though. To make this all worthwhile it can't stain the skin. Do these products do that or no?

The only prop blood that I'm personally familiar with that leaves no stains is a recipe created by Joe Rossi (although I can't for the life of me recall the makeup company that sells it). And the problem with that is that it is neither a powder nor an A&B.

Years ago, I sold A&B Blood... I found it awesome, and I don't remeber any staining problems.A is clear and when dry, it's competely invisible... Be is slightly milky. The reaction is instant and only needs a tiny amount. Nice for the reveal with "Ashes on the Arm. "

Thanks for the A&B idea sanscan. That solution would present a different modus operandi for the achieved effect. I think with the powder as posted from an earlier link is more of a "hands-off" type of approach. It does leave some room for thinking..........

Actually, It's less hands off than all the other methods.

Well, the difference I see between A&B solutions versus the blood powder is.....
With A&B you have to apply A then when ready to make blood add B. With blood powder (it too is invisible) all you do is add water; therefore I think if you are a good "boo-hooer on demand" this will allow the spec to see your natural face and as tears flow you get the H2O contact required and then blood appears as the tears stream. It seems with A&B you would need to somehow add the B to get the blood effect. IMHO I think the powder will yield the most hands-off and visual effect of the two. Just a thought as I've yet to get the powder and begin toying around.

Uh, guys? Did you read the warnings on the bottle? DO NOT PUT THIS STUFF IN YOUR EYES! The chemicals are NOT friendly to optic tissue.

Sorry, but not a good idea. --Always read the warning labels.

I did the glass bead crying thing for Starbucks with a coffe bean when filming a tv special for cable... which led me into thinking...
What if you had some non toxic blood substance and froze a pellet of it, kept that in a small ice pack in your pocket.....

As it slowly melted, bingo... tears of blood.
