True Color Tablets
Non-toxic and safe – Comes in three primary colors!
For a long time, food coloring was the only way to color liquids, but food coloring stains very easily. Steve Spangler set out to find an alternative to food coloring and found Color Fizzers. These True Color Tablets, sometimes called Tub Tints, are the size of a small candy, but can color up to 1 liter of water. Fizzers, when dropped into water and other liquids, dissolve and add vivid colors to the liquids without staining your hands.
How does it work?
Color Fizzers are a combination of pigment, citric acid (as in citrus), sodium bicarbonate (plain baking soda), and a binder. All of these are water soluble with the added bonus that citric acid and sodium bicarbonate react in water to release carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. That’s what you see in the fizzing bubbles. They serve to mix the pigment more effectively.
These tablets are perfect for color mixing. They won’t stain hands or surfaces and come in the three primary colors, which can be mixed to create a rainbow of new colors.
