I learned several things.
- This amount of liquid allows you to dye 2 cups of macaroni - not one.
- Do not use wax paper. It gets soggy with the extra liquid and then sticks to your macaroni. Use aluminum foil instead.
- When using blue food coloring, it mixes with the natural yellow of the macaroni for a result of green - not blue.
I now have several trays of colored macaroni drying overnight. I'm not really sure what to do with them though. Any ideas for fun projects with colored macaroni? Anyone know how to overcome the problem with the macaroni being naturally yellow in order to make blue or purple macaroni?
