Going to give it another try..

Getting ready – putting the equipment together

Marking the cup we think will have the greatest reaction/explosion

Fizzing

More fizzing (this was when we gave up on the eyedroppers and poured the vinegar in)

Now onto painting with vinegar

Image

More

I am looking forward to doing this with different colours – I bought some more vinegar today.

Here it is the sludgy mess – or relief map.

Alexander is tipping out the cups of bi-carb from the first experiment into the tray.

Bonus – nice clean pan now.

Another thing I have been wanting to try is now that it gets dark early glow sticks in the bath. Emily wasn’t feeling too well and I knew this meant she wouldn’t want a bath but I thought a nice warm bath would be just the soothing thing so I added glow sticks and it looked and worked great!

It also meant this morning I explained that inside the sticks was a reaction just like the one we created with the vinegar and bicarb and that is why the colours were fading as the reaction wasn’t as strong anymore. They both want to try this again tonight.
