Product Details

Create atmospheric conditions that produce rain, fog and clouds. By introducing smoke from a burning match and a little water vapor to the cloud-forming apparatus, you can create a dense cloud over and over again simply by squeezing and releasing the large rubber bulb. Under high pressure, air can hold a greater amount of water vapor than it can under less pressure. When the pressure is lowered suddenly, the excess vapor condenses and forms tiny droplets around each smoke particle.
