The idea for this project came from crafting color-changing potion bottles with my kids during the summer. It was a hit, and there are many tutorials on YouTube that will walk you through it. I recommend checking out "Cooking and Craft Chick" on YouTube, who will walk you through crafting a wide variety of color-changing potions. We’re going to use the same no-tech magical technique to make our color-changing crystal ball.
I’m incorporating this piece into a display of my family’s collection of colour-changing potions for the Halloween season, but I’ll be putting this on my office desk year-round. When I need a little brain break I can give it a shake and gaze at the swirls. Make one yourself! It’s a great kick-ass, cheap-ass project!
If you’d like a more detailed tutorial, please check out the build video of this project over on my YouTube channel!
