Default Re: Paint in water

I am guessing that they used water based paints and then poured them into a very small fish tank filled with water (the flat sides give less of a problem for lighting and focusing); I have seen similar photos taken using ink. If you use paint then you have to mix it till you get the thickness you want, lots of trial and error. You can use other liquids other than water to drop the paint into also the temperature of the liquid will change how the paint acts and if the liquid is still or moving will give you different patterns.
