Does any one know how to make liquid oil chamber cell that can be used in kaleidoscopes. I know how to make the kaleidoscope. However, I can not find the directions for making the liquid oil chamber. I have heard that mineral oil and silicone is used for making the liquid, but what are the measurements ?
Also what is the chamber made of ? Where can I find these supplies ? I appreciate any help that anyone can give me. This is a really great site !
Thanks. Glory

I would expect normal clear mineral oil would work fine.
You can mix oils of different viscosities to get the thickness you like.
You can seal the plastic tubes by heat-welding them while they are immersed
in the oil, so you don't get bubbles.
