exploding packets of fake blood used

the old HK method is condoms filled with fake blood. Then you need a little explosive device behind it and then you’re set to go

Here you go ronin. Not really squibs but a special effect similar to squibs without the use of explosives.

I’m trying to figure out how to make Robert Rodriguez’s “Guacamoli (sp?) Gun” which is compressed air, going to a rifle, then he shoots the fake blood, wich is somehow going someplace between the co2, and the gun, at the actor, and it looks really good.

I’m wondering if one could do the co2 going to a thin PVC pipe.

gas-compressed squibs like the ones on exposure are the oly way to go. They are so much more cheaper than explosive ones and one hundred times safer.



But the old hk method requies like batteries and stuff.



i hope i dont get arrested for this, but if u get a copy of the anarchist cookbook. There are some good explosives. The smoke ones are good for smokey scenes without a smoke machine. But i would be careful, cause you dont want to hurt yourself or your crew.

What I do is fill an egg with fake blood and hurl it at the person being “shot.” It splatters on their chest and there is a small explosion of blood. It looks great if edited correctly and is MUCH quicker than that fucking insecticide sprayer.
