The Perpetual Floating Card
Held aloft in a delicate balance...
Dont touch it and it could last for years!
The Perpetual Floating Card is a magical display object that sits on a desk, table, or shelf - a card hovers above the pack...and just keeps on hovering!
Is the method invisible? It depends on the surface, the background, and the lighting. With it set up on a dark surface it is very difficult to see the mechanism, even from a couple of feet away, under normal lighting. By choosing the lighting conditions, and the background, it is possible to make it more invisible. However, the method is not 100% invisible.
Hard to Build! Some of the steps require good eyesight, fine motor coordination, and patience. Only recommended for the highly crafty. Also, some special materials are involved...
*Aside from standard arts and crafts materials some special materials must be purchased online*(Around $20)
Although it is very fragile, if it is handled minimally, and left in a safe spot, there is no reason why it shouldn't continue to float for a very long time - perhaps years!
