I decided to make some Elderflower Cordial this year. Haven't made any for quite a while:
It is crystal clear but looks slightly cloudy on the picture as I removed it from the fridge and it decided to mist up on the outside of the bottles. Just one or two tablespoons in water of your choice to make a refreshing drink. One version of the recipe can be found here, but I use 2 lemons rather than 2 oranges.
Having found some baby board books, and purchased some Brusho paint pigments, I tried them. The plastic coating on the pages was lightly sanded down before a coat of white gesso was applied. Once dried I sprinkled on some of the powders and used clear gesso to spread them over the surface. Once that was dried, I coated it with pva glue and sprinkled on a bit extra plus white speckles. It is darker than I wanted but hey ho, such are these trials.
