Mixing Color Bottle
Submitted by Tina
About Four days before needed or as a group, chop small portions of candle wax coloring put them in bable oil (it takes about 4 days to melt into the baby oil). Once the mixture is melted, color water using food coloring. Next add colored baby oil to the bottom 1/2 of the bottle and the colored water the the top 1/2. Seal the bottles and shake. The colors will mix and then separate again and again. Blue and Yelow Works really well
Alternate Method:
Color vegetable oil with powdered tempra and add to a water bottle. Color water with food coloring and pour into the bottle. Colors will mix to form secondary color when shaken, then separate again when undisturbed. Tip: Super glue the top onto bottle to prevent opening.
