YoYo Experiments Episode 3 – Paint by Yo-Yo


Inspired by OkGo, Jackson Pollock, and pizza that was one day too old.
This yo-yo experiment has had me buzzing for the last 2 weeks.
A HUGE thank you to YoYoGuy.com who donated 4 Clear FHZ’s and Mariano Blaco who sent me 2.
6 Clear FHZ’s, Paint, Canvas, and FINALLY a day without wind or rain.

    Got an actual peek at one of the canvases today. The colors are actually much brighter in person. The pictures really don’t do them justice. Awesome.

    That is a really great experiment, and definitely lived up to the hype you talked about last weekend.

    My question: how should I get the paint off of these Protostars that my kids used to recreate the art? Thankfully I caught them before they found the case of metal yos…

    Any chance you’ll put those FHZ’s up for sale? There’s an earthy quality to the “paint jobs” that is awesome! You should sign them, too!

    These Yo-Yo Experiments have officially become my favorite yo-yo things ever. I love ’em.

    Great production and editing on this too.

    It seems that all the paint flings out of the FHZ in the first split second of throwing it, am I right?

    My idea:
    Fill the FHZ with paint, then put on caps, THAT have holes drilled in them along the outer edge. So… the paint doesn’t spill right out, but when it starts spinning, centrifugal force pushes the paint out of the holes. But, you’d end up with holes in the caps. hrm.

    Good stuff Doc! I really dig the shoes!

    This is epic. I wish I had thought of that. In fact, I wish I had thought of everything that you’ve done in your Yo-Yo Experiments so far. Good work!
