In this project I show you how I made an easy colored pull ring smoke bomb. The key to this build was to make the most simple and reliable pull ring ignitor possible, and it doesn’t get much easier than two matches, an elastic band, and an off-cut of striker from the matchbox. It was also very quick and cheap.
How to make a coloured smoke bomb
I found by far the easiest, safest, and fastest way is to buy them already made. I searched the internet, eBay, and Amazon and came up with a couple of good options. In the UK I found Party Packs to be the cheapest. A simple search on their website for ‘smoke bomb’ turned up the results. On Amazon UK I found these under the phrase smoke pellet. In the USA a search on eBay for ‘smoke bomb’ or ‘smoke bomb red’, turns up something similar.
