Make your own thermal polish? Thermochromic pigments from a place called solarcolourdust

Post  HanSpan on Tue Dec 31, 2013 10:29 pm

Oh heck. I should never have found this place!

Its not cheap at $20 for 10g but having had a bunch of 10g packets from MicaMoma I reckon that could easily be shared between two or three of us if anyone else wants to try?

I've bought some blue to white/clear from ebay. Its arrived already!
I'm so childishly amused that if I hold the packet it turns white.

Here's the listing:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thermochromic-Temperature-colour-changing-at-22c-powder-Ultra-pigment-5g-/150919929054?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:GB:3160

They seem to only have red in that one now, but there are other listings for ones that chagne at other temps. I haven't a clue which is the best I just picked randomely!

Such a shame no-one lives near me. I'd be happy to have company making childish messes with a glass of wine or two.
I suspect I'd have to send OH away and hire a cleaner for the day after;)

From what little I know about thermo pigments they have a limited 'shelf life' once they are mixed, and should be kept in cool, dry, dark conditions. Hope this helps when your mixing.

I'm afraid I'm in Herts not Surrey - Tring to be exact - and we really don't have any room for sleepers except middle of the living room floor with the cats:(
