Health Potion

My family loves playing board games and tabletop roleplaying games today, some creative people have created health potions by putting red resin in the bottom of a cool looking jar and then adding the required D4 dice to it to hand out to players when the buy or find health potions.  I really wanted to make some but I don't use resin due to the health risks so I decided to try creating it with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive instead.

It was really simple to do though has a really long dry time.
I just poured my Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive in, added a drop of red paint, stirred with a toothpick, popped as many bubbles as I could and left it sit to dry.
I checked on it after a day and it wasn't solid, I check on it after a week and it wasn't solid, at 2 weeks the dice were still sinking slightly so I just packed it away in a box as we now knew we were moving and forgot about it.  I honestly don't know how long to get solid but when I unpacked it it was solid and a awesome little prop so now I need to make more since my first experiment worked.

Do you know someone who loves playing Dungeons and Dragons or any other tabletop roleplaying game that utilises potions in the game play?  Why not make them some cool props with your Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive it is much safer than resin and the results are worth the time it takes to solidify when you are putting such a think amount in.
