wava pour-re

Metallic sugar coated small spheres rolling over from right to left, up to bottom on a glass surface brushed clean with a mixture of bottled water and castor oil, the heated copper plate placed on top would oscillate erratically with temperatures from minus twenty degrees to a upper peak where water would evaporate releasing a sweetened smell, this result was the combination of the sugar layers applied into the tiny spheres and the water portion of the spilled blended layer in the bottom surface, a fast process but a inefficient one, this would create an instant where too much friction got produced and the whole weight could cause multiple cracks on the glass, the whole process could be repeated but it couldn't be attempted for more than a limited amount of retries, the separated lost pieces would eventually need replacement.
