Introduction: Super Duper Shmooper Bouncy Ball!

About: I'm a fourteen year old memester who loves to sew and doo arduino related things.

Yeah, bouncy balls are cool, but have you ever tried making your own? Didn't think so. So, I have crossed the raging seas, braved the tallest mountains, and slain a bunch of dragons to bring you this instructable on how to make your own! No need to thank me, just doing my job. Carry on, fine soldier!

Step 1: Materials

You will need: 91% alcohol, sodium silicate(easily found in magic rocks kit, $9.99), measuring spoons, food Dye(optional), rubber gloves, mixing stick, small Tupperware container, tiny Tupperware container, brain(not easily found), ball for comparison

Step 2: Lets Get to WORK

Pour sodium silicate into tiny Tupperware container until reaches the 4 teaspoon mark, then drop in optional food Dye. Pour in small Tupperware container, then pour one teaspoon of 91% alcohol in. Stir like your life depends on it.

Step 3: Put on Dem GLOVES

Put on the rubber gloves, pick what looks like a dog doo on your hands, and start rolling! After it's kinda in a sphere shape, I suggest putting it in one off the spoons that best fits it. Wait a few mineutes and then... A ball! Bounce it bounce it bounce it...

    I don't know, but maybe you should buy another one and test it out, if it doesn't work, you still have one more mold. If it does, you can make two ice cubes art once!

    Neat!

    Just wondering, do you think this concoction would react to silicone in any way? I have a small silicone mold for making ice cubes shaped like the death star and would love to try and make a bouncy ball mold using this recipe. I just don't want the silicone mold itself to be harmed.
