An Easy, Inexpensive Way to Make Crystals

by clawtankfan

The crystals in Lego form look neat and can attach to Lego creations, but what if you didn't want to use those crystals that you payed good money for? What if you wanted to make a background, or glue them to a substance for a picture or as decoration? Look no further. These crystals require little work, and look much more realistic on the ground. There are imperfections, which make it look good. Best of all, you can get a lot for very little money. It requires a little work, but that is only to get the green-yellow tinge.

Here are the ingredients:

Any rock salt will do. It is a type of crystal, and it is perfectly scaled to Lego minifigures so that it plays the role of unrefined crystals.

What gives the crystals their color

How to make them:
Step 1: Put the rock salt in a small, tray like container (Tupperware will do)

Step 2: Put in the food coloring. It is best to have more green than yellow (I cannot specify how much to add, as containers vary in size and height)

Step 3: Wait overnight For special crystals, use other food coloring.

Another great thing about these is that they are absolutely non- toxic. Although pure salt is not exactly good for your heart, it won't knock you out. I have eaten them, and I am perfectly fine. Kind of.
