Having been on the to do list for ages, a friend and I finally managed to get out and have a go at steel wool spinning. If you haven’t heard of steel wool spinning before, then it’s basically setting light to steel wool stuffed into a whisk attached to a chain and spinning it round while taking a long exposure image of the resultant sparks! It’s certainly a lot of fun and yields some very interesting images.
I do recommend that if you want to try steel wool spinning that you take appropriate precautions, such as appropriate clothing, eye protection and make sure you don’t set fire to anything. There are lots of videos on YouTube explaining how to achieve the best results. We were very happy with our first attempts and look forward to trying this again in future.
