Creating Effect Blood for the Stage and Special Effects
Effect Blood is any blood worn by the actor or carried in a stage property such as a weapon. The same considerations of color and viscosity when considering an Edible Blood also apply when choosing an Effect Blood.
The transport should be some sort of waterproof container that can release its contents as needed. Gunshot, puncture and stab wounds can be created through the use of breakable blood bags. Sandwich bags, latex gloves and condoms all burst reliably due to their uniform thickness. Balloons are not a uniform thickness and therefore tend to make poor containers for effect blood.
