What can I say? I have a wild imagination when it comes to photography. I wanted to create something unique and different as a photo shoot; a crime scene with police detectives investigating a murder.
Now, in order to pull off this photo shoot, I needed a makeup artist that is also into special effects makeup.
When I told the makeup artist my idea, she told me we’re going to need to create a LOT of fake blood to pull off this shot.
I was like: GREAT! But how do we do that?
The makeup artist said it was easy. So I wanted to share her technique with you guys on creating fake blood!
All you need is the following:
-1 Big Bowl
-1 Big Spoon
-1 Chocolate Syrup Nesquik
-1 Strawberry Syrup Nesquik
In a bowl, start pouring some chocolate syrup. Then slowly start adding some strawberry syrup… a bit at a time and keep mixing.
Then take a bit of the mixture and apply it on your skin to see if its a blood color.
-If its too dark, add more strawberry syrup and mix
-if its too light, add more chocolate syrup and mix
Repeat again by testing on the skin until its bloody perfect!
Here’s the final bloody result. Photoshoot with my model, Naaia.
