Faux Blood - For Jewelry & More

I'm a certified "Halloween-aholic".   I just love creepy, ghoulish projects celebrating my favorite season of the year.   This is one of my all time favorite techniques and I've used it for jewelry, on glass, and in paper crafting for cards and scrapbook pages.  There are two versions - the original "blood" and then the truly GHOULISH version.....   Want to be a mad scientist?
