Thomas, Lyn. 2009. 100% Pure Fake: Gross Out Your Friends and Family
With 25 Great Special Effects. Kids Can Press. Available in August 2009.

book--in a way--is the literary equivalent to a noisy, obnoxious toy.
The kind of toy that kids love to play with--at least until they get
tired of it--but is prone to driving parents crazy. This book has boy
written all over it. (Not that it would be impossible for girls to want
to make fake poop, but more likely this one will appeal to boys over
girls.) Included in this craft book (yes, it's a craft book) are
instructions for making 'fake' vomit, blood, poop, scars, snot, moles,
road kill, etc. It's illustrated with photographs and cartoon-like

Your basic blood:
This basic blood
is thin and drippy, like blood from a finger cut or scratch. Pour a
small amount on your hand or arm and watch it dribble down. Moan a bit
and ask for a Band-Aid.

Stuff you'll need
125 mL (1/2 c.) corn syrup
5 mL (1 tsp) red food coloring
3 to 4 drops of blue food coloring.

Pour the corn syrup into a bowl. Add the food coloring. Mix well. Ta-da! Fake blood.
