I was having problems finding the correct color liquid for the potion in the image. While I was doing online research and racking my brain I saw my son had a gallon of Hawaiian Punch. He paid less than $2.00 for the gallon. That is less expensive than Gatorade. That got me thinking. Maybe there were other liquids besides Gatorade and auto anti-freeze that will match the green color. (I didn't, and still don't, think anti-freeze was/is a good idea to pour into a pond filled with fish, tadpoles and frogs. I have heard that two tablespoons of anti-freeze is enough to kill child. A drink might be a better idea.) He bought the Hawaiian Punch at WalMart. I got into my car and headed that way.
While in the drink aisle at WalMart, I found a green Hawaiian Punch and thought I hit the jackpot. Holding the bottle up to the fluorescent lights, I saw it was not transparent. I need a green transparent liquid. I continued to scour the shelves for my green liquid. Then, down on the lowest shelf, I spied packets of Kool-Aid. Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid in unsweetened packets @ $0.20/packet. Each packet makes one half gallon. I figured I need one gallon just to fill the bowl. So, I purchased four packets. A good price for my green liquid. I also purchased a box of food coloring with the colors, red, blue, yellow and green. If the color of the Kool-
Aid isn't quite right I can adjust it with the food coloring. I was feeling pretty good when I left WalMart.
At this point in time, except for actually making the drape/chiton with Stitch Witchery and mixing up a batch of Kool-Aid to get the color correct, I believe I have my props. It shouldn't take too much time but, I need to get busy.
