Subject:        Stage Blood

Can anyone point me to a source of information on stage blood in the
Elizabethan era.  I've questioned my local colleagues and searched some
of the more obvious tomes with no luck.  I vaguely remember reading
about bladders filled with animal blood, but I can't recall if the
reference was in regard to the Elizabethan stage or if it was
trustworthy.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
