Round 1 begins. Tiffany and Sarah let me borrow their giant magnets, and Garrett let me have some of his steel wool! I still need a few supplies still, but it’s a great starting point! For this round, I used Canola oil since it was in the house.


  • steel wool gets clumpy
  • canola oil looks sort of gross
  • be careful not to slam the magnets together
  • the steel wool bits stack up on each other to look longer than they are
  • most scissors are slightly magnetic
  • canola oil is great at trapping air bubbles
  • you have to shake the oil/steel mixture vigorously to unclump the particles
  • fewer particles might be better

Now for some pictures!
