Here are a few ideas I found for you*

Start with a cornstarch base!. Mix 5 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/3 cup of water!. Mix it together well, making sure there are no lumps!. Next, add 2/3 cup of light cornstarch!. Stir in 3 teaspoons of red food coloring and 1 drop of green!. Stir until it is consistent!. This should not be too thick or too thin!. If it is too thin, you need to add a little cornstarch (just add a little at a time)!. If it is too thick, add a little bit of water!. Best of all, this is a non-toxic recipe!. If you want dripping blood coming from your mouth, it won’t harm you!.

FAKE BLOOD (an idea from a viewer from New Zealand)

a tablespoon of tomato sauce and a couple of drops of red food colouring mixed together makes ideal blood as it is edible but leaves a little stain that doesn't cause to much concern!.

I found Another similar to the last 1 gave you that said to mix a small amount of lard , or butter as a base & mix together with sauce Or food color !. then use as you want!.*Www@QuestionHome@Com

Try pancake syrup, it's about the same consistency, just a little darker!. Go for the cheap generic syrup since it tends to be thinner than the good stuff anyway!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
