I was reading about two chemicals that when put together form blood. I don't have a name but I believe it may be some kind of movie prop. Does anyone have a source, or may have used this in the past and can give a heads up on it? Thanks.

The item you seek is called "Two Part Magic Blood". It is marketed by Kryolan.

It should also be in stock with some makeup suppliers.

I found it here:

http://www.broadwaycostumes.com/sales/kryolan.htm

and here:

I've never used the "blood", but here is what I've been told. The two chemicals are both liquid, clear, and one must be wet for the reaction to occur. The other can be allowed to dry. The result is a red color, but it turns more of an orange-rust color in a few minutes.

As a side note, be careful using this stuff. I was told that one of the ingredients that is responsible for the "blood" is potassium thiocyanate ... this stuff contains cyanide.

Hope this helps.

Magickally,

Dave, thank you for the websites. Does anyone else know anything about the cyanide in it? I already have loads of ways to hurt myself, without using fake blood. I would like to think that this would be safe, or they would not market it. Then I think of some of the stuff in my food, and worry. Smile

You can get an item here called "Blood Evidence". I have it & it works quite well. It is a two part chemical & it makes a beautiful, very real looking fake blood.

I would definitely recommend it. I would also (depending on exactly what effect your looking for) recommend looking into a sprizzer from http://www.hottrix.com. I use it to do a crying or bleeding stone, and it works great. Good luck!

For information on the individual chemicals... see my post on safety. It was on the 19th, about the MSDS for the chemicals you choose to use!
You will gain a lot of knowledge!

I used to "cut" my hand, using a little mortician's wax. It was made up with base make-up, and stippling. The "blood" was injected under the wax. When the wax was cut, the bleeding was very effective.

Thanks, Ichazod. Blood evidence seems perfect. I'll get it next pay day. A few questions on the other post. On the sprizzer, I watched the video. Is it true to life? Can I squirt things I drink out my nose, or do the smoke out the ear close to people? Also: Sanscan, I have no idea what stippling is. I'm guessing some kind of make up, or wax. Can you set me straight on this? I really like your idea. Thanks.

Thank you! I used to be a theater make-up artist among my many sins. Smile The surface of Mortician's wax is very soft after it's covered with make up. (I used tan #2 BTW). You can find a color to match your own skin closely. A stippler is just an open weave plastic sponge, used to simulate rough skin. Find a place that sells theatrical make up, such as Max Factor's. They will have what you need.

you can also use a stipple brush to make convincing stubble or broken capilary arteries in the face.

Another great product to create the blood from palms effect is Kryolans blood powder. Rub it into your palm (it will become invisible) then as your hand sweats it creates blood from the palms. You can bring on the sweating by holding your hand close to a flame. Or you could have a little water sprinkled in the other hand and bring them together. Do a search on google for Kryolans powdered blood to find a supplier
