Move this if it is in the incorrect area please Mods?

For my Markus the Maleficent model and some others I want to do more of an 'action' paint job. Anyone have any good techniques they use for painting/modelling blood dripping from an object (claw sword etc.). I have in the past glued a small bit of cotton (pulled from a cotton swab usually) and then painted it red, but wondering what others use.

I've been using A+B Plumbers Epoxy Paste; it's similar to two part epoxy glue, but lacks the adhesive quality.
I apply it to the area I want bloodied up;prior to it curing (about 5 minutes) I tease it out into strands. Once dries just paint the sucker up.
Here's an example...the Bloody Cup:



What a Face

Edit: changed image to a more drippy effect Marine. Suspect

I lost the site in which i found a great idea... mix red ink, alcohol, and...thisthis, a gell glue. Using a toothpick you put that mix in your model and let it rest for a while.

very thing fishing line, super glue dried in droplets, and red ink works pretty good.

The leader line is not something I had thought of! Thanks! I liked the hair idea but it was too fragile for how rough I am with my models...
