This is our #1 frequently asked question!
Smoke fluid that produces a coloured smoke from a smoke machine does not exist, and it is unlikely it ever will. We have investigated it extensively, but because such a huge amount of coloured dye is required, it blocks the machines' heat exchanger almost immediately. Everything the smoke touches turns the colour of the dye. This is not practical or safe.
So the only way to make coloured smoke is using coloured lighting or our pyrotechnic coloured smoke pellets or electronically detonated cartridges available from Pea Soup.
But...some smoke fluid is coloured!
This is purely an indicator additive so that users who are using a range of different smoke fluid types with different dispersion rates (eg persistent, quick dispersing, etc) do not get them mixed up and can quickly identify which type of fluid is in the machine's tank.
HOWEVER, as a smoke fluid manufacturer ourselves, we do NOT add any coloured or scent additives to our own smoke fluids as research suggests this is not beneficial to health or the machine.
So the only way to make coloured smoke is:
- use coloured lighting
- use coloured pyrotechnic smokes
The only way to find out when the new Pope is elected is
by watching the Sistine Chapel chimney for coloured smoke - either white or black.
