I decided to have some fun in my studio and create ferrofluid abstract photographs. I constructed these other-worldly scenes in a petrie dish using glycerine, milk, acrylic paints, food coloring, and ferro-magnetic fluid – in various combinations and amounts.

Here is a gallery of photographs showing the results of my experiments:
What is ferrofluid?
Ferrofluid, sometimes called ferro-magnetic fluid, is, in short, a liquid that responds to magnets and magnetic fields. Ferrofluid is made up of extremely fine ferro-magnetic particles (like nano-sized iron filings), coated with a soap-like material called a surfactant, and suspended in a mineral oil liquid base.
