Introduction: Make Different Colored Smoke Bombs

Today we will be making different colored smoke bombs.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need:
Potassium Nitrate
Sugar
Baking Soda
Oven
Oil Based Crayons (only these will work)

Step 2:

First add 50% potassium nitrate to a glass jar. Then 40% sugar, and 10% baking soda. Then shake until it is mixed well.

Step 3:

Add oil based crayons on stove and let them melt. Then add 5 tablespoons of the mixture we made. Stir until it is a little clumpy.

Step 4:

Then put the mixture on a piece of paper. Add a fuse and then wrap it up. Put these inside a paper towel roll.

Step 5:

Light the fuse and then voilà your smoke bombs are perfect.

I made this, but despite using red oil based crayons, my smoke was gray. Any suggestions? How many oil based crayons do you use in each smoke bomb?

This is great. I have made potassium nitrate smokies before, but adding the oil based crayons is a cool addition.

You can buy Potassium Nitrate on Amazon and have it shipped to your house in 2 days. I bought 50lbs a few months ago.
