Ferrofluid Sculpture

How much fun is Ferrofluid? A question that has plagued me for many many years. Only now can I finally offer an answer. Ferrofluid is alot of fun, or at least watching it on youtube is........

Ferrofluid is a liquid that becomes magnetised when in close proximity to a magnetic field. The science from here on in becomes very compicated so I won't even try to explain.

The fluid does, however, have a variety of uses including art scupltures, medicine, mechanical engineering and various electronic devices
