Have you ever seen the Batman movies and been amazed at all the gadgets the dark knight packs into his utility belt? Well I did the research and came up with a way to put you into Gotham's greatest hero's shoes by creating his famous smoke pellets!
This is an impact smoke pellet, which means when it strikes something with enough force it'll go off. How it works is by a chain reaction of different things to ignite the smoke-creating element.
Step 1: Materials
-Snappers (left over fireworks)
-Magnesium Fire Starter
-Potassium Nitrate and Sugar mix (there are some instructions on how to make this online for more info)
-Ping Pong Balls
-Black Spray Paint
Step 2: First Layer: Snappers
To start, cut two equal sized squares of tissue paper. Set one aside for now.
Next take 3 snappers and cut them open. Pour them all into the center of the tissue paper. Set this aside.
Step 3: Grinding the Magnesium
The next step will be to grind this into powder. Take your file and lay it down. Then slowly and gently scrape the flint rod along the file. You can then transfer this dust onto a small sheet of paper.
Keep doing this until you get a decent sized pile (use my image as a reference). Once you have enough just sprinkle it on the layer of snappers you previously laid down.
Step 4: Black Powder and Potassium Nitrate
The final part will be putting a chunk of your potassium nitrate mix on top of it all.
