These were just boiling water that cooled just a bit mixed with Borax. 1cup water to 3tbs Borax. The trick is to not move them once they set.

You could see a bit after 5 or so hours. We let ours sit a full 24 hours.

Awesome crystals Mem!  We're going to have to try that.  We gave it a go with sugar once, but they were pretty scrappy looking.
