I have an old Dracula tombstone I made and decided it would be much cooler if it bled. LOL. I have this old working tabletop fountain pump and thought I could rig up some aquarium tubing to some holes in the tombstone, that would allow the "blood" to drip/ooze down the front and be collected in like a hidden trough where the pump was hidden. Then it just circulates over and over. I know it'll work, just might take some tinkering. What I want to know is ..... does anyone have some suggestions for blood? Food coloring in water is too fluid and washed out... the "blood" has to be something that won't clog the pump or tubing.

Mineral oil / Caster / Baby oil may be worth a try.

I think any type of glycerin / glycol will be too thick unless you can water it down, which may be a possibility.

It all depends if you can get the dye to mix without it separating.

Both of them are cheap enough to experiment with anyway to give it a try.
