Thanks your a great person

  • That was a very cool experiment!! I would think setting this up to have a firmly controlled speed for the 7 turns, both ways, should minimize the striations a lot. Speed changes could cause different amounts of shear, if the ink viscosity is thinner/thicker than the syrup?

  • Hey! i think that when you use your have you create variation in the rotational speed, therefore, when you go back the colors doesn't have the same shape like you started. can you try to use DC motor to rotate the handle? i think that you can have more rotations like that. keep doing videos! i'm following you for few years now and i'm exited with every video you make!
