What happens when you pour Coca Cola into a pan of molten lead? Obviously, ART occurs! I actually was hoping the Coke would boil off, and the syrup left behind would auto-ignite. However, a big surprise happened that even an art lover like me didn’t expect! Working with molten lead IS DANGEROUS! Pouring water, Coke, etc. into lead can actually make a big steam explosion, showering you with hot lead. I was able to mitigate that danger because the lead was shallow, and the Coke instantly quenched (solidified) the molten lead. I can only advise you to NOT try this yourself.
