    1. The glass will last for days since it’s basically just sugar but it can start melting if the humidity is high so it’s best in the fridge until you use it. The fake blood needs to be stored tight and it can start congealing if left out. But it does not need to be cold. Just closed up.

    2. I do not have a ton of experience with either one. I’ve only made them a few times and used them right away. I’m just going on my own experience and based on the type of ingredients they have.
