Any dye or colorant that you add to the oil will dye the rice.

What you can do is coat the rice grain with a clear resin to seal it. Then when its dried you can add it to the dyed oil and it will remain its natural color.

Hope that helps.

I don't think you understood what I meant.

Take ANY oil + ANY dye = You made colored oil.

PROBLEM: If you add rice to colored oil = rice will change color.

SOLUTION: Cover rice with clear resin. (To seal it).

WHY? Colored oil will NOT dye rice IF rice is sealed with clear resin.

Does that make more sense? :-)

Reread the instructable -

The oil is in the tub to preserve the grain of rice, the name is done in Acrylic paint.

I think s/he wants to tint the oil so it's not just clear...
