Molten Aluminum Vs 'Spitballs' - SO COOL!! (water balz)

  • Published: 15 December 2015

    I packed a fishtank completely full of water balls (water beads, water balz, orbeez, spitballs...). Im guessing there are over 10,000 in there!
    Anyway, I melted a bunch of old aluminum pipes and poured them into the fishtank hoping to create a cool design. And it worked perfectly! These are really unique, no two pieces are alike.

    Vat 19 was nice enough to supply me with the spitballs to use in this video :)

    They are also posting a version of this on their youtube channel, which I will link to soon when its posted.

    My Facebook:

    Thank you Tito4re for the inspiration!
    I was watching a video by "Tito4re" where he poured molten copper on waterballs, and that inspired me to fill my fishtank with them, so go visit his channel, it would help him out :)

    I use to work in a aluminum refinery years ago a 20 year supervisor in a rush put the air hose in the furnace without draining the condisation it exploded blow out 60% of the aluminum and killed him and 3 more about 50 foot from my furnace sounded like a bomb went off

                                      Better than pouring molten aluminum into ant nests. No dead ants and faster and cleaner.

                                        Calls safety conscious folks "crybabies".
                                        What would you call someone who chooses to not wear eye protection when they state they have no idea what will happen when they pour molten aluminium into water?

                                          That's pretty cool. Casting a fire ant nest is sweet too.

                                                    sounds like if you build some channels or just break off arms and string em up... might make a good wind chime.

                                                        That was really cool looking. It would make for great art pieces as stand alone or bases for lamps, tables, or whatever...
