Color Jewels

We had a day off of school last Friday, and I decided it would be a good day to finish my obsession with the corn syrup / food coloring dye mixture.

I put some corn syrup drops on paper and then used the tip of the coloring caps to introduce a dot of coloring into the syrup. Below are the results.

What I find interesting about the experiment is how the liquids don't tend to mix, but more like the food coloring floats inside the syrup. (Of course that's a little scary when you think about how much stuff we eat that contains corn syrup.)
