And here is the recipe for the canon effect blood. Please do note that because of the lye this can’t go anywhere near the actor’s face. Seriously, this can blind people if it gets in the eyes. This is for walls or inanimate objects only. Even that… test it first. It’s got some nasty chemicals.
- 3 tablespoons lye
- 1 bottle rubbing alcohol
- 6 tablespoons phenothylene
- 6 tubes blue ink (you could use thymolphthalein but I used this http://www.bonanzle.com/

- Fill with water to the 3500 ml mark.
