Bloody Explosion Effect

What fun would an action or horror movie be if there wasn’t a scene where someone gets shot or blown up, with blood squirting everywhere.  It would probably be pretty boring, right?  Well you can spice up that low budget gore fest and add some exciting blood filled explosions to your next production.

The video explains a simple method using an air compressor, some tubing and red marking chalk to make a nice spraying red puff of bloody goodness.  A nice way to add a little extra zing to your effects is to couple this with a regular squib effect to get a nice shot of blood with the puff of red smoke from the chalk.
