Nothing is cooler than going to a friends bon fire and surprising everyone by tossing in a fire log only to have the fire turn completely blue or green.
I will teaching you in this update how to color your fire different from just the boring old orange.
First things first
Get a few fire logs or large pieces of wood and dry them out.
Next from the list bellow select a coloring agent and dilute it into a bucket of water until you cannot dissolve any more. (Get a bucket with a lid on the top so that you can seal it afterwards and use it to color dozens of future firewood!)
Next take your firewood and soak it in the liquid for a good hour.
Next just leave the wood out in the sun to dry and store. *** Important. Use rubber gloves when handling the wet logs. Some of the chemicals may burn your skin when wet ***
List of coloring chemicals
Color = Chemical
Carmine = Lithium Chloride
Red = Strontium Chloride
Orange = Calcium Chloride (a bleaching powder)
Yellow = Sodium Chloride (table salt) or Sodium Carbonate
Yellowish Green = Borax
Green = Copper Sulfate ( from a hardware store ) or Boric Acid (poison)
Blue = Copper Chloride
Violet **Will smoke a ton** = 3 parts Potassium Sulfate 1 part Potassium Nitrate (saltpeter)
Purple = Potassium Chloride
White = Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom salts)
Edit: Dont cook anything over these fires unless they are the salt ones :P You may get sick!!
