Is there a way to create bloodstains?

Recommended Posts

How realistic of an effect are you going for? There is a "bloody tentacles" tutorial here in which K_I_N_G uses some brushes and layer blend modes to do what you appear to be looking for.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Blend modes are like the filling in your sandwich. It's the filling that can change your experience of the sandwich. ~Ego Eram Reputo

Try Splatter with your primary color set to 7F0000 (once installed, Splatter resides in the Effects > Artistic submenu)

Repeat some 'splattering' with color of 5B0000.

Now play with a large diameter brush with the Smudge plugin (found in Effects > Tools)

Use this as a base to get you started. It's a wonderful rust effect, which without the metal plate texture, would make an excellent dried bloodstain.
