One way to make smoke is to craft a smoke bomb, but you can make a smoke powder, too. Here are some formulations for colored smokes. The parts or percents are by weight. Basically what you do is measure the ingredients, sift them together to mix them, and ignite the powder to produce smoke. Up to 2% sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) may be added to slow the combustion/cool the reaction, if necessary.

White Smoke Recipe

Potassium nitrate - 4 parts
Charcoal - 5 parts
Sulfur - 10 parts
Wood dust - 3 parts

Red Smoke Recipe

 Potassium chlorate - 15%
para-nitroaniline red - 65%
Lactose - 20%


Green Smoke Recipe

Synthetic indigo - 26%
Auramine (yellow) - 15%
Potassium chlorate - 35%
Lactose - 26%
