Step 2: Dying Rice
Put rice in a bowl.
When adding the food coloring you want to add a couple teaspoons of water so the color spreads evenly.
Mix it all together until all the rice in the bowl is the same color.
Once you've reached the desired color lay the rice out on a piece of wax paper. Leave the rice out until it is completely dry.
TIPS for getting desired color of rice:
1.add more water to the bowl which will wash some of the dye off the rice and lighten the color.
2. Add more rice to the bowl: one drop of blue dye for one cup of rice will be darker than one drop of blue dye in two cups of rice...makes sense
1. More dye and less water: drain the water from the bowl
