Achieving a blood design on white wall

Although I could see many blood splatter tutorials. I couldn't see any tutorials on
this specific topic.

I have this white clothed wall:

I want a different blood splatter effect to stick on the wall in subsequent fashion
after each character has entered.

I have the fake blood and want to do the designs myself on other white walls then
paste them in, like an overlay.
The more actors that come in, the more blood designs are on the wall.

How do I achieve the blood on the walls from filming seperate blood designs? (or is
there a better way?)
How do I deal with actors walking infront of the wall where I want the design to be?


As you can see from the picture i've had a real, on set, physical trial already, but
unfortunately with the actors coming in at different times the effect doesn't stay as
saturated for very long.

There's several issues there, most of which would be better addressed in more targeted forums:

Doing it 'live' with the actors is going to be very hit and miss. Do the splashes and layer together later. That way you also have more control over saturation etc without having to rotoscope out your talent.

You're doing this on a cloth. Don't you want it to trickle at all? Wouldn't white paper be better..? Use runny 'blood' and set your table at an angle. That way you can adjust the level of gravity. And my experience on film is that blood comes out darker than you'd expect - but you're on video...?
