Introduction: Rainbow Power

Often friends come home and you don't know what to do, maybe you don't know how to entertain children or you just want to take an original photo, here I leave a simple recipe of colored powders, with only three ingredients. It comes out easily from the clothes and it is not toxic, it is convenient to do it 1 day before the visits but it's really worth doing it.

Step 1: Ingredients


- cornstarch

- water

- 7 colorants: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet (optionally)

Step 2: Dry the Water

Put one or two teaspoonful of water into a glass and add the colorant.

Step 3: Add the Cornstarch

Add two or three spoonful of cornstarch (depending on how much water you put) and mix.

Step 4: Do It Again With the Rest of the Colors

Repeat the same process with all the colors

Step 5: Let Them Dry

Let them dry for one or two hours (approximately) in the glass.

Step 6: For Perfect Drying

Put two or three napkins on a flat surface and pour the mixture. The napkins will absorb water. Let them dry, preferably in the sun or in a warm place. I waited three days for it to be completely dry, but with one night or it would be enough if the proportions of water were not abundant.

Step 7: Move to Different Glasses

Once dried, pass them to 7 different glasses so that the colors do not mix.

Step 8: Crush the Grains

Use a rolling pin or a grinder to crush the grains until they become a power.

Step 9: Photo!

Put a spoonful of powder of the color you want in your hand and blow it for a photo.
