Recipe for lots of smoke on the cheap?

So, I’m actually not asking for actual vaping use, but rather for use as a ‘special effect’ of sorts, meaning I wanna make an object produce the smoke on its own. Which, in turn, means I needn’t make it nicely flavored or anything such and thus it’d be quite a shame to use finely-prepped, nicotine-conmtaining liquid whose only use is to be watched dissipating.

So, what kind of ideas would you guys employ for what’s basically an unmanned chimney?

A fog machine

And the juice it uses

Make your own juice:


The catch is, I need it tiny and battery-powered :stuck_out_tongue:

That said, comparing recipes and the fog liquid you linked sheds some light, and the two machines aren’t too different in principle.

Good one!

Still, this is the customization corner, we can do better :stuck_out_tongue:

You got it wrong, this is not the customization corner, this is the DIY corner and a little Google Fu will take you a long way. I did my part and posted battery operated devices for you which i found in 3 seconds by the way by googling…


Need to chuck some sick clouds bro?


Sorry, sorry, this came off wrong. I didn’t mean any disrespect.

Truth is, 30 minutes ago I thought fog machines run on dry ice, so I didn’t think to look that way anyway.

But, I’m big on the DIY bit, on every field. I wouldn’t bother with this if not for that element. And I figured, this was the place for just that, so I was disapointed facing ‘it’s been done and on sale’, cause that’s not what DIY is all about.

Thing is, the devices we use - including Batteries and Mods - are not made for permanent fire.

Using a device that is made for that is the safe way to go…


Fair point.

Usually, with some of your replies, I wonder if you got out of the wrong side of the bed, but this time your reply was unusually restrained. Are you ok?


Yeah not sure what happened there. I’m sure i will be back to my normal self by tomorrow :wink:

Wrong forum… ??


Wrong everything…


What is your angle here? You seem a bit lost.

We can send you in the right direction if needed. Free of charge.


Is that a hammer in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?


He is always happy to see you and do that secret shake you know…


@Curious_Cappybara you could modify a vape device but it would autoshutoff after max 10 seconds. It would also be about $50 minimum. For liquid you could use pure VG …notice the FOG juice is Glycerin …probably not best for vaping. We use a purer source. Using a bottom airflow atomizer you could blow in instead of inhaling and generate fog …for 10 seconds. Maybe just some plastic tubing and duct tape. Sounds a little risky to make a battery sourced generator but it could happen …no pics? …it didn’t happen :wink:


That’s what I thought too, thanks!

It would get fried for longer, huh? Perhaps dripping it on a hot surface would work for puffs?
