Holograms on chocolate

DIY process to copy commercial holograms onto chocolate! Completely edible -- no dyes or inks used. Tech Ingredients' video: Samy Kamkar's diffractive chocolate: Hologram stickers: Silver mirror process: Add a pinch of sodium lauryl sulfate to the stannous chloride primer solution to help the solution get into contact with the plastic surface. Morphotonix: Caswell nickel electroplating kit: (Price was already pretty high years ago, and has gone up a lot since; and the kit has fewer components than it used to. But it does work well.) Holography Marketplace book -- lots of very practical information for making your own holograms, and good source of suppliers (though many are out-of-business now): Very good source for mold making supplies: Countermeasures against hologram copying. Holograms are often used as a security seal, so making copies as shown in the video could be a problem without countermeasures: I was planning to talk more about different types of holograms in technical detail, but I think I will save it for a future, dedicated video on making original holograms.
