Steam effect


Recommended Posts

I need a steam effect like a pipe bursting spray a 4 jets of steam through a rope wall. Obviously thre are inherent dangers using real steam. Has anybody any ideas about what looks good and what is easy. Bearing in mind when this happens 9 performers are in directly downstage of the effect.

Hope someone can help

How long does this particular effect have to last for? The duration of the jest will determine the best technology to create them.


Incidentally, low persistence fog fluid is often just the same recipe as high persistence fluid, but with more water!


I did a lot of experimentation with glycerol based fluids a while back and found that while water alone created invisible steam from a fog machine, even just a few percent of glycerol would make a visible jet. At the lower concentrations it dissipated almost immediately.
