Making Coloured Smoke Grenades at Home has Never Been so Easy


Do you like to make your life coloured? Do you love colourful things? Would you like to mark an area with attractive and well noticeable signals? You may be interested in using some coloured smoke grenades.

What are they?
“A smoke grenade is a canister-type grenade used as a signalling device, target or landing zone marking device, or as a screening device for unit movements.
Smoke grenades generally emit a far larger amount of smoke than smoke bombs, which are a type of fireworks typically started with an external fuse rather than a pin and are more complex.”
