Default I need help with my table

I got a cool idea for my table, its going to be a swamp/dead river and where a water fall is smoke will come out and fill the valley.

One problem, whats the best way to make smoke?

I would say cotten wool that has been drybrushed in black/grey/white ink would be good idea.

This has been posted in the wrong area. I'll move it for ha.

but that would look lame, I want real smoke/fog.

It would be so cool to be able to have real fog drift across the board, I'll also turn off the lights execpt my lamp with the green lightbulb.

It will have drifting fog plus a green moonlight.

cotton is not an option.

Well you can get fog machines, portable ones but I think their expensive and I think the liquid for it is expensive too. but if you want to do it that way, then fair play to you!

I was looking it up and I can make a fog machine and use mineral oil.

If I get that I would need a small air compressor and a Ice cream bucket.

The only problem is that to oil deposites on the on the end of the tube and might get all over the borad.

Maybe if I put a gloss varnish on the water effects I could just wip it off. Most of it is going to be flowing over and off the table and I dont have to always use it, it shouldnt be to bad.

I think that there are 100% water based "steam" smoke machines out there somewhere.

I would recomend you get your own mini compressor and start making dry ice by the block.

there are some really cool ways to set up your water so that the fog hangs over the river (using directional vents, tubes and mini fans)
if you just want waterfall mist you won't need anything big. if you want a 72" long 6" wide river to be emitting smoke the you'll need a bit more but still not much.

be careful with the size of equipment that you get, if you get something that is an industrial grade smoke system then you should be prepared to have the whole room flooded in less than 15 minutes. a small blower with multiple vents set on its lowest setting should give you effect.

always place anything with dry ice in the lowest room possible and be aware of what is below it, and use adequate ventilation!
