Etsy Wednesday – Coloured flasks

Hmm. You know my feelings about the stereotype of the coloured liquids in flasks, but I have to admit that these coloured flasks are pretty.

Each flask or beaker has a quartz crystal in water with glitter and food colouring. The science perfectionist in me wants nothing to do with this kind of nonsense, but colours! And glitter! And flasks! I’m on the fence about this, but probably only because I can’t see the shimmer of the glitter on this old laptop screen.
