if you wait for it to cool compleatly you can reboil the sodium acetate crystals and they will turn back to a clear watter like substance. then if you want you can make the reaction and hardning happen over and over again. if you get really board seal some of the liquid in a baggy with a peice of dull tin and you can make your self hand warmers that you can use over and over agian, just boil to recharge :)

is it just me, or does the tallest figure in the sculpture look like Marge Simpson with shorter hair?

author
fwjs28 (author)Rock Soldier2009-06-01

no, they all look like people especially the tallest...

hey! i just realized that this is the stuff we learned about in science class the other day! now i know what u mean by "its in hand warmers". i was thinking of the wrong kind of hand warmers.

author
bigfootduck (author)2009-03-05

what if instead of just touching it, u put your finger all the way inside the try and kept it there. would it get stuck? and inside of lots of handwarmers is that black powder. is that it?

author
wax54 (author)bigfootduck2009-03-31

do you really think black powder would be in the topsy turby life of a hand warmer XP

author
bigfootduck (author)wax542009-04-01

lol thats not what i meant. theres powder that is the color black. not black powder XD

author
wax54 (author)2009-01-04

hey dose anyone know why i can only find 20$ for 500 grams not 8$ :,(

Xtopher420 (author)wax542009-03-30

I bought a pound of Sodium Acetate on Ebay for only $5.00

does anyone know the measurements for hot ice cant seem to find it ..thanks

Jacktop (author)2009-02-09

im totaly doing this for my science fair progect!!!

vince086 (author)2008-04-27

with one is better Sodium Acetate ANHYDROUS or Sodium Acetate trihydrate ???? thank you this is so cool

author
marine12320 (author)vince0862008-12-30

I would guess Sodium Acetate Trihydrate.

author
vince086 (author)marine123202008-12-30

thanks, will get some asap

cornboy3 (author)2008-08-09

Can you eat this stuff? :D that would be so awesome!!!

author
marine12320 (author)cornboy32008-12-30

Well, sodium acetate is used as a flavoring in salt and vinegar chips, but i still wouldn't recommend eating it, even if it is 99.9% pure.

author
shloveko (author)cornboy32008-09-25

Apparently no

author
cornboy3 (author)shloveko2008-09-25

Aww :(

sethie (author)2008-06-17

No body listen to this guy I spent 7 hours trying to do this and nothing happened but my house smelling like vinegar. Seth Blackburn, out

author
shloveko (author)sethie2008-09-25

did you use refined sodium acetate or a crude quality? you want something around 99% for dense crystals like in the vid...

author
agdollison (author)2008-06-18

also i saw this in popular science

author
neonsk8er (author)2008-02-18

is sodium acetate the same as ghost crystals?

author
helldaddy1 (author)2008-01-24

thats sweet

I recognize the burner! It's from "shootingeggs" on Metacafe. 100% sure.

author
keng (author)Bran2008-01-05

well yeah you can tell from the burner and the giant slide at the end that says "shooting eggs".

author
eLeet (author)Bran2008-01-01

Yeah- it's the exact same video... they didn't even bother changing the music :-/

author
oneandonlykenny (author)2008-01-02

yeah it is, its a good vid so i posted it on here. it wasnt on here so i thought it should be

author
Kiteman (author)oneandonlykenny2008-01-02

Since this isn't your own video, it would have been more appropriate to add it to the Forums

author
lieuwe (author)2008-01-02

yeah its from metacafe!, at the end when he is sculpting look just above the youtube logo, NOT cool

author
eLeet (author)2008-01-01

This is somebody else's video... I'm sure you're not the original author because you'd be embedding the video from Metacafe, as opposed to ripping it, and rehosting ontoy our own youtube account... not cool o.o

author
dbarak (author)eLeet2008-01-01

"accitate" Can't spell, either.

author
eLeet (author)dbarak2008-01-01

Heh :)

author
Weissensteinburg (author)eLeet2008-01-01

Have you seen this on Metacafe as well?

author
Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)2008-01-01

Iv'e seen this video before...

author

Were you the one that made it?

author
GorillazMiko (author)2008-01-01

Thank you, I really wanted to figure out how to make it! Thanks! (added to favorites)
