Liquid marbles (non-stick droplets) containing crude petroleum are reported. Liquid marbles were obtained by use of fluorinated decyl polyhedral oligomeric silsequioxane (FD-POSS) powder. Marbles containing crude petroleum remained stable on a broad diversity of solid and liquid supports. The effective surface tension of marbles filled with petroleum was established. The mechanism of friction of the marbles is discussed. Actuation of liquid marbles containing crude petroleum with an electric field is presented.
