A long while ago I found out about water absorbing polymers. They are little cubes that absorb water and grow tremendously in size.

If you put them in colored water they grow up colored.

So that is a photo of eight little cubes of colored polymer being hit by a fast moving lead pellet.

It great working with this stuff.

Unlike gelatin it breaks up into little pieces that dry out and clean up easily.
