What is it about photographers? It's no secret that a lot of us like to play with fire, fire and more fire. So to help you get more from your pyromaniac proclivities the Backyard Scientist has provided us with this DIY video teaching how to easily make different colored flames out of everyday household items. Lithium from batteries burns red, calcium chloride in Damp-Rid burns orange, sodium in table salt burns yellow, boron in roach killer burns green, methanol burns blue all by itself, and potassium in No-salt burns purple.
Today I am going to show you how to make rainbow colored flames out of household materials. What's your favorite color??? -Backyard Scientist
This was just too cool not to share and I hope some of you end up using (or have already used) these simple mixtures to produce colored flames for more creative images. If so, we would love to see them. Link your works in the comments below.
