The Halloween Edition
Today is Halloween and you know what they say…Halloween is best celebrated with blood — lots of blood. I already teasered the intro image yesterday on my twitter account saying that last night was a bloody mess. Well, of course there aren’t only driving scenes in my film, there’s also action and moody gore. Therefore I was looking for fake blood which can be used on clothes/environment/skin and should also be washable. I stumbled over BLUAT, a little company from Ingolstadt and ordered a small can of blood. The price was alright and I thought it’s worth giving a shot. BEST. DESICION. EVER.
The consistence of the liquid was suprisingly sticky, which was indeed a good thing. It made it very easy to model bloodstains on the mask and the shirt even though the plastic mask took a little bit longer to get dry. After about an hour the plastic mask was also dry and still had that wet look you see in the intro image. I think its possible to speed up the drying process but for me there was no reason to hurry.
As far as washable goes it worked as promised. Cold water and a bit of rubbing and my test stains on the floor, shirt and my skin were gone.
I highly recommend it.
