Conventional bloods will wear or flake away after your actor has
left the chair, but with a stand alone application of BLOOD
TONE plus a topical application of KY Jelly, your blood work
will look good all day without rubbing off or staining the actors
costume. When working with the BLOOD TONE,
a thin application of KY provides a nice sheen, while a large dollop
gives the appearance of dripping blood. The durability of the BLOOD
TONE color allows you the freedom to place your blood in
the morning, allow it to dry, and then instantly freshen it to camera-ready
quality whenever your actor is actually called to set even

will still be there. Either way youre covered!
certain colors will not create similar tones, already present in
the palette. Mixing the YELLOW and
the BLUE will produce a different green
than the GREEN that is in the palette.
Use the BURNT ORANGE to provide a rust
tone. The AGED BLOOD is a mid-ground
aged blood which is not too blue or purple. By taking the AGED
BLOOD and adding it to any other color in the palette, you
will get a whole new range of color.
