In a discussion thread on the Yog-Sothoth forum, Jeff Moeller asked for some help in producing a prop/handout for a scenario he is working on.

I wondered whether it might be easier to get the proper blood effect in a way that retained readability of the note (important) if the handout were actually a photograph of the entire crime-scene tableau.

The handout is actually a cropped section of a slightly bigger version of the tableau that I began with:
Not sure where this handout/prop is going, or where Jeff plans to publish his scenario.
