Blood Effects Gel



Blood Effects Gel is a special effects grade gelatin with deep red pigmentation that allows artists to create 3D blood effects that solidify and hold their shape. The Blood Effects Gel can be formed directly on the skin, or on a metal palette prior to application. 

Create dripping blood effects that stay in place, or unique dimensional scrapes and dried blood effects. After solidifying, the gelatin-based material holds its form, allowing for makeup to remain intact for long productions and lengthy days on film sets. The versatile uses for the Blood Effect Gel make it a must have tool for SFX, film & television, and editorial makeup artists.

Expect 3-50 applications per ounce.


Place the Blood Effects Gel bottle in hot water and increase temperature until the gel turns into a liquid. After gels have been warmed to a liquid state, they can be formed into pre-made prosthetic appliances on a metal palette or applied directly to the skin and formed into shape with a metal sculpting tool. As the Blood Gel cools, it will solidify to a smear-proof and transfer-proof finish.

To adhere Blood Effects Gel appliances that have been prepared prior to application, use a fresh layer of heated gel, or Spirit Gum to ensure a solid bond between skin and gelatin appliance. 

To remove, start by soaking the area with a hot towel, and follow up with our Bond-Off adhesive remover and Quick Cleanse.
