Start by putting half the rice in one zipper seal bag and the pasta in the other. To the rice bag, add 12-15 drops orange coloring and about 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Shake for 1-2 minutes. To the pasta bag, add 12-15 drops of black coloring and about 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Shake for 1-2 minutes. Repeat this step again if the pasta is not dark enough.

Pour each bag out onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and repeat step 2 using the other half of the rice. Let these dry for a few hours or overnight.
