  1. To create fake blood, mix flour, water and red food colouring.
  2. With a spoon or a brush, apply the fake blood mixture onto the skin.
  3. To create an effect as though  your skin is peeling off, apply glue on your skin and put shredded cotton on it.
  4. Put on more ‘blood’ on the cotton. To make it more realistic, spread the blood to make it look as though it is ‘dripping’.
