It's always an amazing thing to stumble on entirely new (yet evidently ancient) artistic techniques. Top Men had never heard of Marbling except as it applies to a nice juicy ribeye. We're assuming that the majority of the teeming masses haven't either, so we're bringing you up to speed with this collection of movies.

These movies demonstrate the primary marbling technique of floating inks or paints on water. The resulting images can be "printed" by laying a sheet of paper on the surface.

Briggs-Rauscher Reaction

You gotta love it when a couple high school science teachers do something in the 70's to get a chemical reation named after them. The two read about some obscure chemical reaction discovered by a Russian in the 1950s and modifed a couple chemicals to produce a striking chemical oscillation. The oscillations normally continue for about ten cycles.

Top Men would like to note that non-biological chemical oscillations were not even thought to exist prior to the 1950s, and through the wonder of modern technology you can watch it before your very eyes.

Ring Master

A year a half ago Top Men called your attention to a human underwater bubble blower. But in this video dolphins demonstrate their own particularly amazing techniques and mad underwater bubble ring skills. Wohba!
