How to give your piece that extra bit of gore..

Let's say you are working on a new horror piece and you realize that your piece is lacking that extra gore. How do you make blood look real? Well first off I can tell you that paint even though I've tried doesn't work for me. I have tried mixing, dripping and shading the paint onto my figure but it never looks right. I found this idea mostly by accident and by experimenting. You only need two items to make convincing looking blood.

2 items

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and red food coloring

These two things will last you for quite some time and it will harden to your figure within 3 hours or less. 

As the mixture dries it will go dark in some areas just like real blood. I use a paint brush and apply it to cuts and gashes. You can smear it onto your work as well. This is the piece I most recently used this technique on. Please do be careful cause the mixture can stain clothing and surfaces.

Content, it is what you want

So I am curious as to what content you would like to see here? I want this to be a more interactive community than my Facebook page or Instagram. I want to be able to see what your curious about. Have you thought about trying your own clay art? Are you wanting a more step by step guide on how to make smaller items? Please feel free to share your thoughts on this. I have ideas which I will be putting here soon. 

Welcome to the site

I did it, I finally took the plunge. I now have a website in which to share my work. If you feel like following along here, I will be posting more of the work I do. I will also share more of what it takes to make each piece and please feel free to ask questions. You will also be able to purchase my art. This will be a space for community and a place to grow. I'm excited to share all of this with you.
