I also want it to be permanent. I saw a machete on ebay with it on the blade and I'm still trying to figure it out lol. Please help a brain dead person out?  Cheesy

Ahh, I was just thinking about this today.

One way I thought of, which wont look super-realistic, but should stay on really well is to get a glue gun and some coloured glue sticks in red. Put the glue directly onto the your weapon of choice and hold it at an angle to make the "blood" run a little. All the coloured glue sticks I've seen are opaque, though, so it might not look so great in practice. Or, you could use clear glue stick to get the raised effect and then paint it afterwards. I think this technique would probably work on fabric too, but the glue might soak in to a porous surface.

I think I'm going to experiment doing the same type of thing using ordinary PVA glue with food colouring mixed into it. This might affect how fast the glue dries, the consistency, etc, and PVA isn't exactly the most permanent of glues, so it's not ideal, but probably easier overall.

If I think of any more ideas, I'll post them. Hope this helps. Smiley

I mix gelatin with purple powder eyeshadow and fake blood, soak cotton balls in this gel, then pull the cotton balls apart and use liquid latex to attach the clumps to my skin. I'm sure you could do something very similar with mod podge instead of the latex for props. It would seal it all, too.

Heres an example.

WOW! darkdaughter, that looks Awsome!

Does it dry up after a while when you are wearing it , or does it stay soft and/or "tacky"?

It drys up. It keeps the wet look, though.

I find fake blood, or red ink, works pretty well. I do like to gore myself up sometimes. If it's for a blade, I'd suggest red and black acrylic paint with scrunched up little bits of paper to look like clotted blood.

On the tote I made for the zombie bag, I simply mixed shiny red puff paint with matte black acrylic.  It came out the perfect dark red color and kept the shine when gooped on and dry.
