Paint flowing into wine glass

I am always searching for new things to photograph. I recently saw a video tutorial on how to photograph paint flowing into water. The photographs were so unique that I simply had to try doing this myself!

I went out and bought a small 8 gallon aquarium and some acrylic paint. It took several attempts to get the paint flow into focus. By then, the water was clouded with paint and the aquarium needed a water change. Over the next few weeks of photographing paint in the aquarium, I felt like I was wasting so much water and I knew that I had to find an easier way of doing this.  The solution? Using a wine glass. Don't you just love it?
