Here’s What Happens When You Mix Soap, Oil & Ink Together
ALEX WAIN AUGUST 7, 2013 2
Whilst you use ink in your stationary, oil for your bike and soap to wash yourself everyday, its rare that all three liquids come into contact with one another.
What would happen if they did? Would blending ink, soap and oil produce something similar? Or would they just cancel each other out into a soapy sludge? That’s precisely what Russian visual artist Ruslan Khasanov was compelled to find out and so he decided to embark on a series of fun experiments to test his theory.
His inspirations came whilst cooking one night, when he noticed the mixture of soy sauce and oil separating out into small black beads in his dish. Taking the same logic, he mixed different quantities of soap, oil and ink together and filmed the results. Amazingly, his unique concoction produced a vivid blend of yellows, magenta, whites and blues – all completely experimental and all mesmerising to look at.

I Took A Long, Memorable Walk Through Hong Kong — Here’s What I Saw
Last Saturday morning in Hong Kong, I went to brunch with friends at a restaurant called The Square.
The Square serves dim sum, a type of breakfast food oriented around pastries with meats in them and sweet rice confections.
Then I walked back to my hotel, the Courtyard Marriott in the Western district.
It was a long, meandering walk.
During my walk, I saw a bright green Lamborghini, stood on an escalator that took me across the city, and walked past a flattened pig face hanging from a storefront.
There were also million-dollar antiques and some squid.
I’ll never forget any of it.
Implications - These would definitely make wonderfully delicious and cozy gifts for chic chefs or classy cooks. They are very comedic and cozy, and will definitely set you apart from the crowd. “Slice” up your life with these “loafed” up loafers!
