Earlier today I was thinking that I hadn’t felt real creative or inspired lately. . .
So I decided to go dunk a bunch of crayons in a glass full of carbonated liquid and take a few photos:
I don’t know if this totally snatched me from my funk; but it sure didn’t hurt!
And at the very least, I can say I learned a little bit about the effect of an object’s density on floating and sinking, as well as buoyancy. (Even remotely science minded I am not.) When first tossed into the liquid the crayons floated back to the surface rather quickly. After several dunks, though, it took longer and longer for the paper cover wax to return to the top of the glass. Art can be so educational sometimes.
