4. Add citric acid. Work into mixture so there is a full coating.
5. Separate into three equal parts, color one part red, one part blue, leave one part.
6. Pack colors into two shells however you choose. Don’t pack too tightly, but be sure to slightly overfill each side.
7. Squeeze both parts together, and wipe the sides to remove any excess.

8. Let harden for about 24 – 48 hours, enjoy!
