    I'm going to pick up some Dry Ice in a few minutes for Halloween. Hopefully I should be able to get some nice fog out of my waterfall at my house. I put up some strobe lights to (hopefully) create a creepy feeling too. It doesn't sound like the welding place has much left since it was so last minute, but we'll see what I can get.

    Pictures in a bit.

    I Picked up a 10.6lb block (all they had left on short notice). We lit it up with a blue LED light to make it glow. I tested a green LED from my keyring and that one looked much better than the blue.

    there is actually a fan there. its clipped onto the red jump pack. its 12v dc. if the fan is too close it blows the fog away too quickly.

    I tried one without the flash, however it didn't turn out very well. Hardly anything is visible. This Kodak doesn't take very good night shots. Plus the ice is gone now.

    We used to sell these. Check it out. Mist/Fog and LED lights without dry ice made just for ponds.

    Those little disk foggers work great and you just flip a switch. We put some in a big cast iron pot, like witches brew - really cool effect. Everyone thinks it's dry ice but never need to buy more.
