Ferrofluid mixed with watercolours.

The shapes you see in these image are about the size of a thumbnail. They are created by mixing ferrofluid with watercolour and putting it into a magnetic field. Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity similar to motor oil. When put under a magnetic field, the iron particles in the solution start to rearrange, forming the black channels and separating the watercolours from the ferrofluid. The result is these peculiar looking structures.

Find out more about the project here.

Watch a video of the process here.
