About PMFS Blood
Pigs Might Fly theatrical washable blood was first created by the award-winning motion picture industry veteran, Nick Dudman, who found that in the course of his work he would regularly be asked by Special Effects teams to provide them with realistic fake blood. With numerous make-up effects jobs coming his way, Nick made up his own supplies for his work and it wasn’t long before other make-up artists were asking him to supply them also.
The washability of this “blood” was the key to its success - other bloods on the market were notorious for staining, a costly problem on costumes, wigs and unprotected skin. Not just for make-up artists, Nick’s Pigs Might Fly Blood has long been the choice of Wardrobe, Wigs and Props masters too due to the ease of cleaning away from fabric and furnishings. From crime thrillers to hospital dramas, it gets everywhere.
Pigs Might Fly blood is regularly seen on the stage and screen: from blockbuster movies, to major TV series; from London’s West End to Broadway and beyond; in fact, it is used worldwide by some of the Industry’s biggest names and used on some of the world’s most famous actors.
Now further advanced by Pigs Might Fly South, the range of bloods available has expanded to include pumping/splash blood, wound filler and scratch gel, non-beading 'silicon-friendly' blood, colour variants and an edible ‘mouth-safe’ version, all of which are fully compliant with Cosmetic Regulations.
