I've been wanting to make "magic crystal paint" for awhile now after seeing the recipe in this book.
I tried 1/2 cup hot water, 1/2 cup epsom salt, stirred, and added food coloring.
then we set it on the side to dry. and a few hours later...
pretty, but not what I thought it would be like. I've seen other pictures of paintings using kid's crystal paint and they are totally crystallized with salt.
so I pretty much failed at making magic crystal paint, but the main thing is--em had fun.
HELP! does anyone know how to do this???
