"I just got my hands on Triton X-100, before I used SLES. So far no success, used 5 drops of Triton (small drops) in a Mathmos Jet bottle with wax from a new bottle. Still just one big round blob going up and down. I'll try to use more Triton…"

"You should just use printer ink to re-color it - or some water soluble color (not food color in my experience, you get sediments in the top). Ink can make it a little hazy tho, but not much."

Looking for a source of glitter

Hello, I am looking for a source of glitter, preferably 10*10 mm silver squares. It needs to be resistant to a calcium nitrate solution or maybe even also perchloroethylene.Holographic would also be nice, even though I think I have some 5mm tinsel curtain that actually works. My 10*10 mylar confetti seems to look worse after getting into my nitrate solution, but not eaten away yet (it's been a few weeks). It's also maybe a little too transparent.I'm based in Denmark, EU.See More
