Introduction: Bedroom Fx Ep. 2 Safe Smokebomb

This very simple smoke bomb needs not even the slightest spark. It only needs to be flung at a high velocity at something solid (like a wall.) so make sure your actor has one behind him/her.

Step 1:

you will need: easter egg, flour, and a spoon, (optional and not shown) slingshot.

Step 2:

put a couple of spoonfulls into the egg.

Step 3:

close it up, and chuck it.

Step 4:

P.S. be sure to use an old easter egg as it may crack.

One thing to be cautious of, is that this is not done near a open flame or spark!

Airasoled Flour is very flammable!

I have absolutely no idea what your talking about. I just used the flour that was in the cabinet.

Just making the caution to be careful around flour dust(AKA your "SMOKE") and any flame.

Flour can burn, and when mixed in the air, it can explode! like gasoline!
here is a link to a youtube video of someone tossing a small packet of loose flour into a bonfire. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve0798jC0RE

I read something about that in Popular Science or mabye it was Popular Mechanics... but anyway there wouldnt be a spark unless the egg was made of metal and so was the wall and you shot it out of a gun.(or the wall could be flint and the egg, steel.) :P

Or threw it into a wall near a candle, or a pilot light.

Grain silos explode with some regularity due to flower dust and static. just saying to be careful. and absolutely don't put a burning fuse or something liek that into the "safe smokebomb"

One thing you could replace the white flour with spelt flour. It is much less flamable.

Or baking soda, (not flammable, and actually works as a fire suppression agent.

as I told you before I have absolutely no idea what the heck your talking about!!!!!

Really? Flour is really Flammable. Baking soda is if you let it harden.

author
killbox (author)Draconian12011-10-19

No, baking soda, NaHCO3 (AKA) Sodium bicarbonate, is not flammable, if you heat it, it releases CO2 which is pretty much a fire extinguisher, and why baking soda is a good thing to grab if you have a grease fire in a kitchen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_bicarbonate

Probably the gunk in it then. I tried burning it and it almost blew my head off. At least i think it was baking soda...

I am sick and tired of this conversation. The reason I wrote "Needs not even the slightest spark" is because you don't set it on fire. Seriously this is getting old.

I agree it has gone a little long, but i don't think its a bad idea to warn people to be careful with potentially explosive flamable dust issue, especially if they are planing to use them for Special FX possibly around fire or candles or pilot lights.

I agree. now this conversation is OVER. RIGHT NOW.


p.s. I am sick of this.
