Whatever Floats Your Boat – Smoke Machine Fun!

What Ever Floats Your Boat!

I’ve been playing around with models over the last few months.  Car models, model railroad sized building, boat models….

But recently I added a new element – smoke.  The smoke comes from a Halloween smoke machine I had in the garage for a number of years.  I don’t think I even opened the box from when we moved from Mount Desert Island Maine to the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont some seven years ago.  Luckily the thing still worked and I had some fog juice left for it.

I’ve seen photographers use dry ice to create foggy effects.  Nice thing about dry ice is the “smoke” or water vapor is cold so it says low to the ground.  The smoke produced from a cheap smoke machine tends to float and dissipate.   Professional models use a chiller that cools the smoke so it stays lower and creates that spooky graveyard effect.  I just had to work fast and try a few different tricks to try to get the smoke where I wanted it.
