1. Dissolve Copper Acetate(WSDTY) monohydrate in water. These pellets can be found at a chemical supply store or ordered online. Drop them into warm water. Stir the water with a glass stirring rod until the crystals are completely dissolved. The solution should be a blue color.

If you have made your own copper acetate solution from household chemicals, this step is not necessary.

2. Facilitate the precipitation. Copper acetate will precipitate spontaneously. Leave the solution in a cool, dry place. As the water evaporates, copper acetate will be forced out of solution. You will see blue crystals form across the surface of your dish.

You can also drop a crystal in the solution to jump-start the precipitation. Put the solution out of reach of small children and pets. If left unattended, pets and small children may ingest the solution. This can lead to acute copper poisoning that can be dangerous or even fatal.

3. Dry the crystals. Once you have obtained crystals, pour off any remaining solution. Transfer the crystals to a paper towel. Let them sit for a day or 2 to dry out.
