INSTRUCTIONS:
Measure out your ingredients into a metal container or a microwave safe container. Melt them together either on the stove, still in the bowl, in a pan of water or in the microwave. When they are completely melted, add your pigments and stir well. Quickly decant into your containers before the liquid starts to cool.
