Realistic BloodStains?

I'm in the process of creating my Mion/Shion Sonozaki cosplays and I need to know the most effective and realistic way to produce bloodstains/splatter on my clothes? What has worked for you with out washing out? What looks more realistic? Thanks for your time

Zombie Bloodstains

For my Dead Dale zombie outfit I used a mixture of watered down red and black acrylic paint (depending on how "fresh" you want the blood to look you would use more or less black). It splattered nicely and stays on the fabric once it's dried. Then on top of parts of the wounded area I added some more homemade blood (corn syrup, chocolate syrup, water, flour, and lots of red food dye) that has a shinier look but does wash out.

Here's us as a Little Zombie Girl and Dead Dale from AMC's "The Walking Dead"

Hope that's what you're looking for!

I don't know of any materials, but I've noticed getting an old toothbrush, dipping it in paint, and running your thumb along the bristles to flick the paint out gives a really nice effect. You can wipe off some of the paint to varying degrees to get different amounts of splatter. You could try getting the paint/fake blood on your thumb and rubbing it along the fabric or whatever you're painting gives it a cool smeared effect as well.

Seconding acrylic paint. Though I use red/black/brown for clothes, since I figure it dries matte, which gives a feeling of dried blood.

Depending on how fresh I want the blood to look, I usually use a mix of red, black, brown, orange and even sometimes green (well ugly greens xD).

There are a lot of good brands, I use Liquitex basics.

If you check out my Mion cosplay, there's a small "recipe" for the blood I used in the descriptions (: it's very sticky thought <.<

Jah. Also: If you mix a bit of acrylic and water, put it in a spray bottle, it sprays really well. You can also play with the nozzle to do big pools of the stuff, a spray, or a fine line spatter/trail.
