Magnetic Silly Putty ‘Hack’ Creates Magnet-Devouring Blob

Magnetic Silly Putty ‘Hack’ Creates Magnet-Devouring Blob

This automagically morphing blob of Silly Putty is based in science, silly, not witchcraft.

But how does one go about creating a freaky blob of magnet-devouring goodness? Instructables member Michael Saurus lays out a parts list:

Tools:
– disposable gloves (latex or other)
– disposable face mask
– disposable work area (paper plate)

Materials:
– Thinking (Silly) Putty ($2.00 or less) – any colour
– ferric iron oxide powder (artist supply stores)
– neodymium magnet

After that, it’s up to you to follow his simple-yet-amazing/freaky experiment to its conclusion. Check the video – that hellspawned putty ball eats magnets! [Instructables]
