Christmas craft ideas: crystal snowflake tutorial

Preparing for the New Year! How to grow a crystal snowflake

Decorate the house for the New Year will help you a master class on the cultivation of a beautiful snowflake crystals from a solution of borax in water. Borax can be purchased at the pharmacy, household goods in a shop or supermarket in the department of detergent.

you will need:

– Special brushes to clean the pipes (sold in tobacco shops)
– Food coloring (optional)

If you can not buy brushes to clean the pipes, they can be replaced on wires, wrapped thick woolen thread.

1. First you need to get a saturated solution of borax in water. To do this in hot water gradually, stirring, add borax. Estimated proportion (3 heaping tablespoons per cup of water). Only by achieving complete dissolution of the last portion, add the following. Borax to add as much water to become cloudy, almost opaque. As you add, if you clearly see the undissolved borax crystals in water, adding more is not: undissolved crystals in the mixture will play the role of “distracting” elements, and the crystals begin to grow around these particles, and not around your snowflake. Therefore it is better to filter the solution.

Pour the mixture into a glass beaker, cup, jar or pitcher (depending on the size of the crystal that you want to grow). Glass containers should be wide enough to a throat.

2. Make a brush for tubes of a snowflake. Tie a rope to it or attach a wire. The other end of the rope (wire) wound on a pencil (a stick).

3. Dip into a snowflake solution of borax.

4. Place the container with a suspended structure where all this for a long time will not be disturbed. After about a day snowflake will be ready!

For more tips and warnings:

1. If you want a colored snowflakes, add a dye solution of borax, or use colored brushes to clean the pipes.

2. A solution of borax can be used repeatedly, pre-heated in the microwave. But the process of crystallization takes a little longer.

3. If the drill starts to crystallize, when you pour the mixture from the pan into a glass container, try to pre-heat the container with clean, hot water;

4. Keep borax and borax crystals do not fall into the hands of small children! If you swallow enough borax in large quantities, it becomes toxic to the body. All materials are exposed to contact with the leaf should be thoroughly rinsed. Contaminated materials should not be used brown for cooking and eating.

5. Growing crystal snowflakes from borax is not only exciting but also a useful exercise – an entertaining scientific experiments on crystal growth in the home.
