Hello my little hauntlings!
Discovered an absolutely amazing and cheap material for props today and I just had to share!
I found a neat little idea a while back, using grow animals, putting them in small jars and letting them grow and take the shape of the jars.

While playing around with the grow animals, my mom and I discovered that the material is the same that is used in spill kits and... DIAPERS!
We grabbed a diaper and stuck it in a big pan of water and watched it expand, then I decided to cut open the diaper and see what was inside!
This is what we found (with a bit of food coloring added):


Put in a jar:


Then, I added some yellow food coloring, stuffed the mixture in some clear latex gloves and tied off the end. Put them in a jar with some red food coloring and molasses, and here is the brilliant creation:


(Sorry it's a bit blurry)
Just had to share this! This stuff can be used for all kinds of things! Some of you may know that I am working on props for a meat locker, so I am going to stuff a bunch of these latex glove parts in big clear trash bags! >)

Hope some of you guys can find this of use!

Clever! This should work well for anyone with a mad lab, bio hazard, meat locker, etc theme for sure! Cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Yes I am excited to get playing with this stuff! It would probably look awesome with some blacklight reactive paint in test tubes!
