Dont put it in the microwave. Thats step one. Depending on how much you wanna use depends on the ratio. I would start at like four packs to about a 1/4 cup of hot water. Just make sure it is all dissolved. It sets up pretty quick so youve gotta work fast with it. If your going to use it as brain matter, its two drops of Red color to one drop of blue and I found Golden Crisp cereal to give the best look. But dont be afraid to try diff things with diff textures. Just make sure the water is hot, but remember its going on skin so dont boil the water then try to apply it to your actor.
Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.
