Food colouring was added for it to enhance the textures formed from the crusted film and crystallization. Colour aged by 24 hrs to ensure saturation and allowed it to dry to touch.

    ewww, but cool ~ so glad this isn’t a scratch and sniff ;) xoxox ♥

  • LOL! Noooo scratch & sniff, T-goodness. Though I have to tell you the smell wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be…. it smelled earthy and bland, no rotting smell at all. Now keep in mind the colour is food colouring. I liked this little experiment : )

    I love the pic and I collect crystals, but I think I should give this one a miss for some reason I can’t quite put my finger on. Cheers :)

  • hehehe!! Good choice as I wouldn’t want to put my finger on it either. The smell wasn’t as bad as people thought – actually no smell and it did crystalize while hardening all through. Thanks so much for your visit and for taking the time to comment! Cheers ?
