Welcome To The Bitchery

The other day, I opened up my Wheel of Fortune game, which I apparently last opened over 10 years ago (there is a score sheet that is dated, because I apparently though it would be important to know this later on). In it was also this:

Illustration for article titled Crowdsource this mystery recipe


200 [degrees] - 10 min - styrofoam

1/4 cup of school glue gel,
same [some?] of starch; food coloring

1 cup warm water — 4 pack
unflavored gelatin, food coloring
scent [?], 1 cup cold water.


This looks like some kind of recipe, and considering that it's mostly non-food ingredients, I'm guessing it's a craft thing. It's written on the back of a schedule from a job my wife worked at at least 10 years ago, and it's in her handwriting, but she has no idea what it is. Also, it doesn't make much sense. What in the hell does the first line mean? I'm not sure what exactly would happen if you put styrofoam in a 200-degree oven (by the way, anybody know how to make that little degree thing?), but I'm sure it's not something I want to find out. What kind of "starch" does it call for in line 3, and is it saying "the same amount, i.e. 1/4 cup"? Why is food coloring listed twice, and what does "scent" mean in the last line, if that's even what it says?

I suppose I could Google it, but I think it would be more interesting to see what you guys think.
