Dancing Dragon Magic

More fun than I ever thought I could have with smoke!


While I was trolling through the internet, I discovered something called backflow incense. My research shows that it is made with more tar than regular incense, which makes the smoke slightly heavier than air, thus causing it to flow down, rather than up. So, while I don’t think it is a good idea to breath this all the time, I thought it was interesting enough to experiment with. I had been working on a water fountain and the idea of a tiny smoke fountain intrigued me. I started with an ambitious three-tiered dragon fountain, with the smoke flowing out of the dragon’s mouth and over two levels, to the bowl beneath. I then decided that these little incense cones don’t make that much smoke, so I added a second spot to hold an incense cone. Then came two wall fountains and two more small standing fountains. It will be a while before they are all fired, but they were great fun to make, and I can’t wait to see them finished!
