I know there are glass haters and rainbow haters here but I hope the lovers will cancel out their low votes. :)

Everything is Jello except for the purple, that's coloured water. Sorry to dissapoint anyone who thought I had layered liquids of different density.

A few more notes:

It took me 2 days to make the layers (waiting for each layer of jello to set). The jug was placed in a bowl on an angle to get the layers look as if I were pouring them out.

I waited until the last day before taking the pictures. I wasn't happy with how the jello looked in the jug. It's a fat jug and the only one I own. I think it would look better with a skinny jug then you'd see the layers and colours better. But it was too late then to buy another jug and set the jello.

I almost didn't enter this, I wasn't happy with the jug or the hand or the darker area on the top. But I went through so much trouble to make the jello that I decided to enter it anyway. Glad I did, it's scoring really well.

Very nicely done. Glass looks a tiny boot OOF in places but the overall effect is cool.

Wow! Simply stunning. Sure, it may be straightforward to get color separation in a still object, but to have that in your pitcher as well is amazingly cool.

I dont like the colours in the lower part of the jug, i would like to see a little more light in that part... thats all ive got from a negative angle.
On a positive note everything else i love. Clearly this will be up there with the best.
