(10/14/2004•19:22) Help on making a smoke breathing dragon mask [edit]boofdorf 
Trying to give the illusion of smoke emanating from a dragon mask I've designed for my son. Simplest idea seems to pump a container with air and small bit of water to give mist effect. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

hmmm... i dont know maybe you could some how bring dry ice into the picture.., hell i dont know the water effect you have now sounds pretty good.

I would suggest using baby powder and gliter instead or water. The glitter falls slower and gives a nice effect.

Just brainstorming....

There are these small dishes and ponds for indoors (on tables etc) wich use smal ultrasound devices to generate large amounts of mist from water at room-temprature.

I just know them from here in germany, they use 12V DC.

The problem would be to 'spoilproof' contain the water, but let the mist come out...


much Much MUCH better idea:
The "zero fog blaster" (just google it) it's a handheld toy-gun that uses a small smoke generator to shoot smoke rings (very funny!!!) just dismantle it... et'voila!

Thanks for ideas. Since my son is 6, I wanted it to be safe as well, so I went with fire illusion. I found these tiny, l.e.d. blinking red/yellow lights (at a dollar store) that are tiny and designed to be worn on your ears. They have a tiny magnet on the back to hold on to your earlobe. I was able to build a mask with deep nostril holes and put these lights inside and it looked great, especially in the dark, outside.
