How to change the color of your campfire

Updated on July 18, 2011

Campfire Colors

This is how to change the color of your campfire! You can make green, red, blue, or white fire. I wrote this article for fun and I hope you can get good use out of it. Please take the time to like my post as it really helps support my writing time and 40% of the revenue generated from this page goes to child aid.

AS A NOTE PLEASE NEVER MIX THE CHEMICALS USED TO CHANGE THE COLORS. I REPEAT NEVER MIX THE CHEMICALS!

Changing the color of your Campfire

Here are the chemicals needed to change the campfire. Here's the list of colo

Copper Chloride- Blue fire- Search for it at skylighter.com

Copper Sulfate- Green fire- Get it at swimming pool supply stores

Epsom Salt- White fire- You can find it anywhere!

Strontium Chloride- Red fire- You can find it at certain chemical supplier stores!

Table salt- orange fire- You can find this anywhere!

Again never mix ANY of these. I don't want to be responsible for any poisonous gas!

Adding the Chemicals

To add the chemicals use a 4" piece of ductape and fold it closing the ends. Add the one chemical of your choice and throw it in the campfire. It should now be lighted up. Congrats!
