                Ok some of you may have seen my other post on the pinatas. I'm still trying to work on most of the stuff. The origami isn't going the way I want so I'm still trying. For those of you that wanted to know how to make the bath salt, its sooo simple!
                Okay you need epsom salt and sea salt or baking soda. Go to a craft store and get some fragrance and coloring (it will be in the section for making your own soap and stuff) I've heard you can also use food coloring to dye it, but they do make a special dye for stuff like this which is what I used.
                3 cups epsom salt
                1 cup sea salt oe baking soda
                Be careful when adding the fragrance and dye because to much moisture will dissolve the salt.
                Mix as you add the fragrance
                If you are doing multiple colors then divid up the salt in different containers and add your color. Again mix as you add the dye, I was instructed to only use about 2 or 3 drops but it wasn't as bright as I wanted so I added more. I would say to do 3 drops at a time until its a color you like.
                Let it set out until everything is dry then put it in your containers.
                I think the whole process takes around 20 mins or so, other than the dry time. I'll post more pics as I get them completed.
