My Bloody Valentine, Make an Anatomically Correct Bleeding Heart

by on Feb 3, 2009

Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a severed bleeding heart. Add a card and
a ring embedded in the left Atrium and you’ve got just about the most
romantic/mind-blowingly-gross Valentine I’ve ever seen.

And you
can make one to traumatise or enrapture your own sweetheart! There are
very detailed instructions and even a video over at I Make Projects
you’ll need:

  • One heart-shaped mold (find one here.) You could use a use a Valentine heart-shaped cake pan for a less restraining order inducing response.
  • 1 large package Strawberry flavor gelatin (6oz, or 170g)
  • 1/2 can evaporated skim milk
  • Food coloring – pastes are preferred
  • Clean paintbrush to apply food colors with.
  • A clean produce bag for the blood.
  • Corn syrup and Grenadine.
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Head on over for the skinny.
In the valentine spirit I have to admit to having an enormous Blog-Crush on I make projects. Anybody who can hack a Wii controller into an AK AND throw a cannibal themed dinner party has me at hello.
