Q & A on Magic Water Babies
Here are some common faqs on our Magic Water Babies!
*Important to read before trying out the water babies!
Question: How do I measure 30g/30ml (of milk calcium)?
Answer: You can use the measuring cup or a weighing scale.
Question: How much milk calcium powder should I put in the water?
Answer: The ratio of milk calcium and water is important. The recommended ratio is 30g:1000ml of water. Anything lesser will result in less than ideal results. If you are using lesser milk calcium powder, you can adjust the ratio by putting in lesser water.
Question: Why can't I squeeze the gel out?
Answer: The tips are sealed to prevent leakage during delivery so do cut the tips! Not too much though so that the gel does not flow out too quickly!
Question: The milk calcium does not dissolve in the water! Help!
Answer: Do prepare very warm water so that it will take a shorter time to dissolve!
Question: Why does it take so long for the water babies to be removed from the mould?
Answer: Remember to dip your mould for 10 mins in the milk calcium water before squeezing the gel in! The first time might take longer but it shouldn't be the case for subsequent tries!
Question: How do I do layering for 3D moulds?
Answer: 3D moulds allow for layering. For the deeper 3D layers, fill it to 70% full (not fully to prevent mixing of colours), then full the top layer fully. Use preferably lighter colours.
Question: My babies are all soft after making them! What should I do?
Answer: The water babies will be soft once it is removed from the mould. It will gradually harden after it has been soaked for a longer time. Leave the water babies in the milk calcium mix for about 20 minutes before transferring them into a pail of plain water.
Question: Why doesn't my water babies puff up like what I see in your pictures?
Answer: Once the water babies are formed, it will be soft to touch. You will need to soak in the water for at least 20 minutes for it to harden and puff up.
Question: The gel hardens after comes into contact with the mould! What is happening?
Answer: Flick the water off all the moulds before playing! The gel reacts fast with the milk calcium water mix so do ensure that water is flicked off the mould before playing!
Question: Will the water babies grow in size?
Answer: No, they will likely shrink but you can prolong its lifespan by soaking them in plain water.
Question: How long can I store the milk calcium water?
