Stove Pipe Steamer:

(Instead of the hot plate, I used the Presto Kitchen Kettle and placed the pipe right inside of that. According to my notes it's model number 06006)

Resist:

(To make black, I will fill the applicator bottle about 3/4 full with resist and 2 full droppers of black dye, or whatever color you are trying to make.)
