DIY Magnetic Goo!!

DIY Magnetic Goo!!


Probably the closest I’ll get to metal bending. I feel like when I run out of things to put on my chalk wall, I either put up an Avatar thing or some random symbol. Hopefully you guys get this one. What else should I draw on my chalk wall? Earth Empire. Spoiler alert!! It didn’t last too long. Hey guys!! Ray Pajar from Get Crafty Crafty!! and today I’m going to show you how to make magnetic goo!!
Hey guys!! Ray Pajar from Get Crafty Crafty!! and today I’m going to show you how to make magnetic goo!! I’m going to be using the recipe from our goo without borax video, which you can check right up here. And the only difference between that video and this video is that we’re using iron oxide to turn this goo magnetic! Since we are using iron oxide, be very careful when you are using it. Make sure you have the help of an adult when you are using it in it’s raw form and be very careful not to eat or breathe this in. Let go ahead and get started with todays project!! The items that you’ll need for todays projects include: a large mixing bowl, liquid starch, 2 tablespoons of iron oxide, I found this online and I’ll have the links in the description below, 1/3 cup of water, strong earth magnets, and a bottle of 4oz white glue. First take your glue and empty it into your bowl. To ensure you get all the glue out of your glue bottle, add a 1/3 of a cup of water into your bottle, shake it up and then add that to your glue mixture. Make sure your glue and your water are mixed throughly. Once you’ve mixed your glue and your water Carefully add your two spoons of iron oxide. Next add a cup of liquid starch into your mixture. You’ll notice that it will start to get stringy and solids will start to form. At first your goo is going to be string and very wet Keep mixing and eventually kneed it with your hands until it;’s one solid piece. Once your goo has completely formed and has absorbed all the liquid starch, the water and the glue it’s ready to play around with. Like I said earlier, the only difference with this goo and the other goo, is that it has magnetic properties. Use different earth magnets, which are actually a stronger magnet, capture your goo and see how it reacts. Different magnets have different strengths. And what I found is that the refrigerator magnets (haha) the regular refrigerator magnets aren’t as strong compared to the earth magnets. So make sure to check these out, I’ll also leave a link for where you can get these in the description below. See what your magnets can actually do. I’m going to have a little time lapse right here of how long it actually took for this magnet to get engulfed by the goo. If you make this project make sure to share it either on my Facebook, Instagram or Twitter Using the #GetCraftyCrafty hashtag. And make sure you check out our last two projects: the paper popper and the water color mugs!! Hopefully you guys fun making this awesome third goo project and I’ll see you guys next time!! Take care!!
