Creating fake blood
I recently cut up a micro short. And after the fact, well into editing, I realized that with all of the effort I put into practical fake blood I completely neglected to apply some to the pillow. It's all said and done now, but for the future I was wondering if there was any way to create a blood stained effect.
Not that cheesy blood spray effect. Just a way to apply it to an object...that grungy, gross bloody look.
I tried tooling around with masks and whatnot, but it still didn't work as the pillow kind of moves around ever so slightly as the dude getting his head bashed in with a hammer moved.
Is there even a way to do this? like make the effect stick to the object? messing with colors or something?
