How to Make Skittles- Not the Candy but the Craft (Hot Trend)
Directions come from a dear Message board friend named AnnaE. I tried her "recipe" and it all turned out.
With the skittles if you have a hard time finding a certain color you can color the clear ones yourself with alcohol inks. It's pretty simple:
get a small plastic zip lock bag
put in the amount of skittles you want to color
put 2-3 drops of the ink in the bag
seal and squish around to color
if they are not dark enough add another drop
add one drop at a time until it is the color you want
pour out on wax paper
let dry, about 5 minutes
put in a new plastic bag, label
I put the name of the color on the old plastic bag and reuse, I like to recycle.
