    Could you give more precise details of teh food color. WE should make a collection of what works and what doesnt. Looks great.

      I used the sample tube to hold 0.5 ml of red food colour and used the dropper to drop another 0.5 ml of boiled water (Preferably distilled water). Then I shook it to mix it up thoroughly. I dropped some on the slide and then placed the onion skin on the drop and dropped some more. Then I absorbed some extra solution with a tissue and sealed it with the cover slip sticker. It doesn’t absorb straight away, so I sealed it and left it on. Yeah, that’s pretty much it.

      I got the idea from this website:
