Introduction: Portable Milk Splatter

Picture of Portable Milk Splatter

Milk, or any liquid, is THE MOST DANGEROUS nemesis to all IT products ( laptop, phones, tv, etc)
so why not give someone a heart attack with a fake milk splatter on their laptop? 

you'll need:
- a piece of glass, or any smooth surface
- white glue, aka elmer's
- soap, or any lubricant (cooking spray, WD40, etc)
- knife

Step 1: Prep Your Surface

Your surface can be any smooth surface, I just had a piece of glass around.

Now take a your choice of lubricant (bar soap for me), and cover the piece of glass. 
This makes the removal easier later.

I also took a piece of brown paper to spread it around more. totally optional.

Step 2: Squirt Your 'milk'

With the surface ready, take a bottle of white glue and 'draw' out your milk splatter.

You want to squirt out a nice thick layer of glue, that way it is easier to peel it off after it dries. 

Step 3: Let It Dry...

Now let it dry for a good 6 to 10 hrs. 
You don't want to leave it close to a warm vent or anything, you'll get wrinkles on your milk!

Step 4: Time to Peel

Once the glue dries, take a knife or anything with a sharp edge, and poke the edges around.
After the thin strips are free, it should be easy to peel off the whole thing off your surface.

Step 5: Sign Up Your Victim for Life Insurance

Now with your milk splatter in hand, you can place it on anything you want without harming anything.
Try distracting your victim to the kitchen, then place the fake milk splatter on his/her laptop, and wait for some reaction!

You can add some colors to your glue for other uses, red for fake blood puddle, green for slime, etc.

Can't wait to try this with my grand kids. I'll let you know how it goes.

popgirl860 made it! (author)2016-03-07

Can I do it on a flat non wooden desk?

To make it even better, hide everything on their desktop and change their background picture to a faulty screen like it is broken

As a crazy person i know this prank works better when you take a glass of milk and poor in nicely on someone else's laptop and let it dry for about a week.

Great second part of the prank is that this person will be looking for his laptop for about a week till the point he finaly finds his laptop with your amasing prank.

During the time it drys you can even decide to autograph your prank but in my opinion it works better to write someone else's initials in there.

good idea on the last bit! i will definitely use it. i did this last year on my teacher

If you want a simple computer prank

Change the colour of the font to white.

The victim will then have white letters on a white screen, so it looks as though

the keyboard does not work.

Cant wait to do this on April fools day

NanaK1 (author)2015-04-01

geris1 (author)2015-03-23

Haha I can't wait till my splatter dries! I'm targeting the roomie first and then my parents! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEIR REACTION!! It'll be better than the one I got when I told everybody that I "Rolled Up the Rim to Win" and won Tobego!!! Some people actually congratulated me on winning=D

You must be from Canada!

This project is SOOOOOOOOOOOO fun to make!

As a crafty person, I know that you could do this with Slick paint too. Try white slick paint on a thick plastic wrap. It should peel right off.

Cute trick.LOL

JackB4 (author)2015-03-31

Hmm. I wonder how long I can milk out this prank...

jsbjsbjsb (author)2015-03-26

Pair this with a screen "short out" pic for a very convincing prank!

Add a mostly empty glass of milk next to it and a few drops of milk on the desk around it. That will help sell the prank

jean.weaver.161 (author)2015-03-23

My students used glue on wax paper to create snowflakes with Q-tips. It peeled off very easily. Just remember to go slowly as you remove it.

vladivastok (author)2014-08-09

I KNOW JUST WHO IM GONNA DO THIS TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK'S [ VLAD ]

owen5702 (author)2014-05-24

You should add brown to it so it looks like coffee

Bobey (author)2014-04-27

Turn off the computer so it looks like it died

RayJN (author)2014-04-03

Haven't tried it yet but seem a thin coat of Vaseline on glass should give an easy release

flerfmod2 (author)2011-05-11

This does not really work.

PhilieBlunt (author)flerfmod22014-04-02

awesome profile pic yo!

PhilieBlunt (author)2014-04-02

you could add a tipped over paper cup on the edge of it with some glue inside also to really sell the effect

herojig (author)2014-04-01

Putting glue on a warm keyboard; what could go wrong? Have you tested closing the lid?

FarmerKJS (author)2014-04-01

even better if you put a bad screen like an error screen

Ron54321 (author)2014-04-01


missloveuk (author)2014-04-01

that is a good idea

instructrobot01 (author)2014-03-31

smallfly10 (author)2011-04-01
