I need help with a bloody nurse costume for my daughter.  We bought white scrubs.  What is the best way to bloody them up?  Red paint or does someone else have a better method?

Thanks! :O

The way I have done it in the past is to mix three parts cornsyrup with one part water. Then when that is thoroughly mixed start adding drops of red food coloring until the desired color is achieved. When the perfect color is achieved, add flour to the mixture to thicken it. Stir completely until all lumps are gone and the "blood" is sufficiently thick. After the "blood" is created, add it to your clothes and let it dry for atleast 10 minutes, although it will be sticky at that time, once it is completely dry it won't be sticky.

Or I'm sure you could find more professional stuff at a halloween store Smiley

I agree with the corn syrup, though I've heard of adding cocoa powder to it, to help get the right dark red color.  The fake blood stuff tends to be way too bright when it dries.  Especially if it's on white clothing, it can dry almost pinkish.
