How to make a coloured smoke bomb.

Lilac smoke

Some time ago we showed you how to make a smoke bomb normal, but now we are going to learn how to make a coloured smoke bombPay attention to the video:


FERRITEThe dye is the colouring, you can get it at the hardware store, preferably orange or blue.
Potassium nitrate or KNO3It is available at any agricultural veterinary. It is a fertiliser so you can get it in any agrochemical shop.
Sugarin any kitchen, of course.
Sodium bicarbonateis a white powder that you take when you have heartburn.
Insulating Tape, like the sticker but in black.
Paper coneis what is left when the roll of paper runs out.
MechaYou can make one with a pita and a lot of ground match heads.
Cottonso that the wick does not move.



Mix the nitrate with the sugar in a small saucepan, 60g of nitrate and 40g of sugar.
2. Now put it on a low heat until the mixture caramelises and becomes half-brown.
3. When the mixture looks like butter, add a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda (all this mixture over low heat).
4. When the bicarbonate is no longer visible, add 3 large spoonfuls of ANILINE and add enthusiasm.
5. When the mixture looks like orange butter with lumps.
6. Now pour it into a cone, but make sure it has a plug-like thing on one side (that it is firm).
7. Then with a thick pencil put it on the tube and press it until it reaches the bottom and leave it there (this is to leave space for the wick, preferably the pencil has to be thick).
8. From there they take out the pencil and put the wick in the hole left by the pencil.
9. From there you put cotton wool around it so that it is more or less tight.
10. Now wrap everything with insulating tape leaving a considerable space for the wick area.
11. Now to turn on and run.

Very easy to make and fun, the only thing you have to be careful with is not to do it in a place where you can be noticed, because as you can see, it gives off an impressive smoke.

  1. I have already made it and the thing is that it came out great. The only thing you have to be careful with is when you add the baking soda to the mixture as this makes the mixture increase in volume very quickly, otherwise nothing happens, just keep the heat low and that's it.

    1. amigo dond conseguiste el nitrato me puiedes informar ya q donde yo yo vivo no lo hubico.... gracias saludos a todos

  2. it's just a random thing to say... - if you're going to copy paste something at least make sure it's actually useful... otherwise, don't post it.
    as for the dangers... mmm nah nothing to see, i've made a lot of that candy and nothing ever happened. yes it can light you up but it only makes a flame and a lot of smoke (the fire it makes is dangerous, it's like a gas welder xD
    but otherwise it's OK) but you always have to be careful when playing with fire or you'll get burned if you don't respect it.
