Oil and Water

The last of the wine glass shots. I wanted to layer different colors in the glass. I did some research, and found that honey, dish soap and cooking oil all have different densities than water. I didn't have much success with the dish soap =P But, I did color some water, and then poured vegetable oil in the glass. I tried to pour it slowly, but it still disturbed the water greatly. The result was these fantastic bubbles, though!

The dark blobs are green food coloring globs, that did not separate in the oil. I might have to try this again and not use the food coloring.
