Ferrofluid Sculpture – test 1

Test 1 was not a failure. A Failure would have involved getting ferrofluid all over my clothes and/or workspace. However, I was not able to get enough ferrofluid to “stick” to the magnetic mount to get the weight up to the 74g needed for proper hovering action. Gravity pulled the ferrofluid down to the bottom of the screws and it started to drip off much too soon. It looks like I will have to augment the upper magnet with magnets on the lower parts to get the ferrofluid to surround the hovering part of the sculpture.
