Scientific Tuesdays - How to Make Breakaway Glass (Sugar Glass)
Ever wondered how they have such cool effects in movies where glass is shattering? Well, typically these effects are based on household sugar. We make make our own crude homemade version with some common household ingredients.
For this demonstration you will need the following items:
3 1/2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Cup of Corn Syrup
1/4 Tsp. of Cream of Tarter
If we boil the mixture up to about 300 degrees F, we can then pour it into a mold and create an awesome shattering effect just like the movies.
