100 k wint-o-green

Here's a trick that works for resistors: Stack four wint-o-green life savers, held together by icing. Paint the rings with the appropriate color code. Here, brown-black-yellow-gold.


The great things about this technique are (1) it leaves a hole to put your wire through and (2) the white candy surface takes most colorations very well.
