How to Make a Real-Life Rorschach Mask [Video]

Everyone’s favorite seemingly insane antihero Rorschach, from the comic and (more recently) movie Watchmen, sported a neat mask that autonomously changed patterns, which YouTube user guinness0507 was actually able to recreate in real life. The patterns change based on temperature changes, which is taken care of by simply breathing into the mask.

The idea actually isn’t too complicated. With the application of Thermochromic paint, paint that changes color based on temperature, the mask’s patterns respond to the heat of human breath, a clever workaround to achieve an effect very similar to Rorschach’s fictional mask.
