  1. When droplets hit super hydrophobic powder, the powder fully encapsulates the droplet and “freezes” them into shapes that differ based on the fluid type and velocity.

    Top row:

    1. 25% glycerol droplet “freezing” into an ice-cream cone
    2. 25% glycerol droplet “freezing” into a tenpin shape

    Bottom row: 

    1. a normal water droplet striking regular powder and rebounding partially covered
    2. a coated water droplet ejecting a satellite drop before “freezing” into place
    3. a “frozen” 25% glycerol droplet.
