How would you go about freezing or trapping a ferrofluid so I had a cool sculpture? Answered

Want to trap the ferrofluids into a sculpture. Dunno if freezing it or what would be the best way of going about this?

instead of making the ferrofluid with vegetable oil and micr toner.try making it with micr toner and light epoxy. i heard this work.I've never tried it.

Use a DavidScanner to read your object, then send it to a fab and have it made in resin. Steve

Can you make these liquids with resin / monomers? L

You might be able to suspend a coffee filter in the bath, create you image and then lift the filt thru it to capture...dry the filter and voila... I don't know if it'd work but it's an easy experiment.

Hmm...sculpture...picture yeah..but what I suggested isn't a sculpture. It'd still be essentially 2D
