Rock Candy Mountain Dress, take one.
After finding out there are about 20 different techniques for producing rock candy, I'm doing the scientific thing and running an experiment with each 'recipe.' The curious thing is, most of the recipes contridict each other--some say to stir, others to absolutely not stir, some want you to boil the mixture, others say not to.
In any case, tonight felt like chemistry class and sticky.
The Laboratory/Dye Room.
Rock-Candy Samples--or at least, they will be, now they're syrupy liquid and string samples--they're in warm water so they cool slower, it's supposed to help crystal growth.
My first attempts didn't crystalize, they just got extremely stiff.
