Personally, I don't think it looks like blood spatter at all. Huh

Hey, thanks for the feedback! I'm in the process of making one with sort of a disturbing "body fluid bleed out" pattern on it  Cheesy (nice theme, huh?) and I'll definitely make one with a blood pool... maybe it can be my set... one is the scene of the crime, one is bystander and the other is just tainted by the aftermath... lovely! I think I'll put some on my etsy in time for valentines day, not sure they would be hot right now. Any other ideas gladly welcomed, I like my crafts creepy, that's for sure!

For the blood I used speedball silkscreen ink and splattered it from a brush... I think I might try to fill blown eggs with red paint and shoot them with a bb gun over/ in front of the pillowcase, just to see what effect I get... whacking a sponge didn't make much of a splatter at all, I feel really stupid just typing that. Heh.

Thanks again for the feedback, I really appreciate you all taking the time!

In theater, we get spatter a couple of different ways.

Dunk a three inch chip brush in your paint and then hold it on one hand and repeatedly whack the handle of the brush against the side of your other hand.  Hard to describe.  Try it out on top of newspaper or a trap or something you can get paint on.

This is a chip brush

You can also thin out your paint (and strain it.  You can use cheesecloth if you have it, or pick up knee high paint hose, and use either of those to line a funnel), and put it into some kind of inexpensive garden sprayer.  This is good for higher pressure, and finer spray.

This is an example of the kind of sprayer we use:

This type works, too:

I love the idea of a set!  like a big pool of blood/fluid on the sheets.   If you try to think of ways blood actually DOES spatter you might get some ideas.   Like for the pool of blood it'll be darker in the middle and lighter on the ends because all it did was spread.

A partial hand print would be good. (an entire hand print may be a little kindergarten-ish).  Some smears like they tried to get up.

Okay Chelsea. your way too into this!  I hope you not speaking from experience.  Just settle down.  Take a deep breath.  Have some chocolate and watch "Sleepless in Seattle" or something.  Everything will be fine.
