Mix 2/3 cup of corn syrup with 1/3 cup warm water. Add 5 tbsp. of corn starch.
Add 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder to the mixture, and stir until it dissolves. Squeeze about 4 tsp. of red food dye into the mix.
Darken the mixture using a few drips each of the yellow and green food dye so it takes on a darker, more convincing blood color.
Use the sponge to soak up some of the blood. Squeeze, drip or dab it onto the desired area to create a blood stain.
This stain may not come out of clothing, so beware before applying it to carpeting or clothing that cannot be disposed of.
