Step 2: What You'll Need
The first thing you'll need is some milk. I've found that whole milk works best, but you can use any kind.
Food coloring will allow you to see what is actually happening and create beautiful swirls and patterns. Any kind, color or amount will work. Have fun experimenting!
To hold the milk, use a shallow bowl or a plate with raised edges.
Regular old dish soap is the way to go.
Finally some Q-tips to apply the soap with.
Step 3: Add the Milk
You won't need much at all. Just a thin layer of milk will do. Because so little milk is needed I poured mine into a plate with raised edges instead of a much deeper bowl.
Step 4: Prepare some soap
Pour some dish soap into a mug, glass or cup. As with the milk, you won't be needing much.
Step 5: Add Some Color
Now you can get down to the fun stuff! I started by adding four or five drops of purple, red, green and blue in the center of the plate. But as I stated in a previous step: you can use any colors you'd like. Have fun placing different numbers of drops in different areas of the plate to see what will happen.
