Topic: Coffee Silly Putty (6 msgs / 86 lines)
1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
Wouldn't it be a neat idea for Sweet Maria's to offer white (or coffee
colored) Silly Putty in the same quantities as the coffee? I think that I
would like playing with Silly Putty while drinking coffee and contemplating
exothermal reactions  :-)
Anybody knows how to color the white Silly Putty to get the proper coffee
color (for different roasts)?
There is an interesting article on Silly Putty on the first page of today's
Wall Street Journal. Also, see www.hart.com/putty
Cheers, Lubos

Ah, finally a question I can answer with some authority!  I happen to have
the formula for making silly putty!  I can order the raw materials from GE
and make up a batch, but the problem is the batches are 40 pounds and
require a pizza dough mixer!  On a smaller scale, I have a source for
silicone compatible colorants we could mix by hand.  Next question.  Can we
agree on which color of 'roast' we want it to match!?  :)  Dan

I would try working in a little strong espresso.  You might have to let 
it dry a little afterwards.

Jim, why not start with dried espresso first?   :)   Don't they call this
'instant' coffee?   ;)
