Want your own piece of amber but don't have the money to buy a sample? Here's a way to make your own fake amber
You Will Need
A dead insect (look on window ledges or on spider webs)
Plastic pop bottle cap
clear nail polish
tweezers or needle-nose pliers
What To Do
1. Place the pop bottle cap, empty side up on the newspaper.
2. Use the tweezers to drop the dead insect into the empty cap
3. Place several drops of yellow food colouring into the clear nail polish. Close the polish and shake to mix the colour. If you wish you can also add a drop of red food colouring to the polish to make a more amber colour
4. Drip the polish over the dead bug and put in a safe, out of the way place to dry.
