I took all of my white coco that I made last night and colored it. Then, in the dehydrator it goes! I'll show you all my finished product after it dries in a while. I put a different color on each tier so it shouldn't get all mixed up (hopefully? :shock: ) Okay, here goes...

Cheers,

Will~~~

Well friends, here are the 5 colors of coco all dried. It was bone dry in less than 2 hours! And, guess what: They didn't get mixed in the machine! For the next few days, I will be making several batches because, like I said before-- lots of coco houses to restore! I'll post the different colors as I make them if you're interested in seeing. :) I got some more white coco "baking" in the dehydrator right now... :mrgreen:

Cheers!

Will~

Any idea on making silver, Will.

That would be a tough color to come up with.

Hmmm, that's a real good question Steve. I might be able to mix some grey and see what will happen, but I don't know if it'll come out shiny like silver though, let's see. I'll take that challenge sir! ;)

Not sure how this would work out but FolkArt paint has a silver and gold metallic.
