Remember how fun silly putty was as a kid? Or, if you're like us, still is? Well, thanks to a post by Instructables, we have a new, big-kid-way to play with the squishy sensation.
- Silly Putty
- Ferric Iron Oxide Powder (available at any arts and crafts store)
- Neodymium Magnet
- Face Mask
Here we go!
Put on your gloves and face mask. Remove the putty from the case and kneed it in your hands for a while to warm it up. Finally, roll it out flat like a sheet and lay it on your work surface.
Tap a small pile of iron oxide onto the center of the putty.
Fold the putty over itself several times until the powder is worked into it. Eventually the putty will turn completely black. Keep working it for a few more minutes.
Grab your magnet and enjoy!
