WATCH  | Bob Long is a butcher who uses leftover animal blood as paint.

Bob has been a butcher for decades

Long lives in LaGrange, Indiana, and has been butchering at his shop, Butcher Bob's, for decades. 

Bob was curious what would happen if he put blood on canvas

When looking for a hobby three years ago, he decided to turn to painting and realized he had gallons of paint at his disposal. 

Bob said there was plenty of blood to use

He said he was motivated to not waste any part of the animal, leading him to use the leftover blood from butchered animals as paint.
