- 8 ounces of baking soda
- 4 ounces of citrus acid
- 4 ounces of corn Starch
- 4 ounces of Bath salts
- 0.75 of tbsp water
- 2 tsp of essential or fragrance oil
- 2.5 tbsp of oil
- 1 or 2 drops of food colouring
Blend all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, and mix well.
Blend all the wet ingredients together, we used a jar to do this but putting them all in and shaking the jar.
Slowly add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry constantly whisking, trying to avoid causing a volcano. You have to mix them together slowly as they may start reacting together if mixed together to fast. If this starts to happen mix the reacting part into a part that isn't.
The mixture should be damp enough to stick together but not too wet that it is gooey.
Using what you have at hand, a cupcake tin, baubles or proper molds, mold quickly into the items making sure you use as much as you can to give it a tight molding.
I let ours dry overnight in the tin but if there is no detail then you can take out pretty much straight away. Leave them to dry before using and store in an airtight container.
Ours were pretty good. The fizzing lasted about a minute and the smell was amazing (rose and yang yang). I must admit the colour wasn't the best so add as much as you think .
These are pretty cool to make and once you get the hang you could make these for your friends as gifts or experiment in different ways.
