I got some of those really cute glass jar pendants from Hobby Lobby and have been trying different things with them. Recently, my sister-in-law (who is 17) has been having a really tough time with life (ontop of being a teenager) and I want to send her something to cheer her up. She's a huge HP fan like I am, so I'm going to send her a "letter from Hogwarts" that isn't exactly an acceptance letter, but a letter explaining that they're taking more interest in muggles after the fall of Voldemort (because, of course, they want to live peacefully with them) and they hope that she will soon be happy and peaceful, something along those lines, but I want to send her a polyjuice potion necklace so that she can "become someone else for a time". Not something edible, just for show. WHAT do I put in this to mimic polyjuice potion?! I want it to kind of be like the polyjuice potion from Chamber of Secrets, the thick, mud-like substance. Ugh.

Any ideas? Here's a picture of my jars just to show you how they look.


Thanks for any input!

What about adding corn starch to water a little at a time until it's the consistency you want. You can add food coloring to it too and maybe little tiny pebbles for some texture. Just a thought Smiley

What Kat1982 said  Smiley Or, you know that horrible gunky stuff that kids get in party bags, I think it's called silly putty or something like that? You could get it in a grey/brown colour and put some of that in there. It's not too liquidy (I always imagine polyjuice potion as being almost too thick and gloopy to pour) and if she takes the lid off by accident it smells suitable rank  Smiley

@Kat1982 - I never even thought about corn starch! I used to do the corn starch + water = goup thing in grade school, too. Why didn't I think of that?! I could get that to an almost perfect consistency! Thanks!

@ MerryGlas - I'm not sure what it's called, either, but I should know. For some reason, parents think that it's perfectly acceptable to put that stuff in the hands of a 3 year old. >.< Needless to say, that stuff is NOT easy to get out of carpets after my kids get ahold of it, lol. That's a great idea, too! Now, to track down where my hidden/stolen stash of that stuff is...hmm... Grin

Thanks sooo much for your input!

I don't have any suggestions for what to put in the jar, but I here are some really cool potion labels I bought off of etsy for swap.  She has several other styles too!

I am not into HP but thought about a couple of things that might apply to this...
what about those little tiny eyes that are on stuffed animals and such....what about putting some of those in one of the jars....or the tiny eye balls for dolls.

What about a clipping of hair...just a little clipping.  Just a few short pieces...

Rocks, sand with something else mixed in...maybe some colored sugar....

A few tiny twigs or tiny sticks
Dried raisins...

hope they aren't to corny of ideas....
