Lightbulb Smoke Shapes?

Hey,
I just bought a new hookah and I wanted to learn how to make some cool shapes with smoke (ok maybe not like gandalf and his ships...). Any have any cool tips of making rings? hearts? whatever?

You can make cheerios. make your mouth like you are going to whistle, and then flick your cheek with your finger.

lol ur question made me laugh, I am sorry to say that it is physically impossible to make any other shape then a circle due to physics. Thats why for example when u make soap bubbles, even if u use a square shaped blower the result will always be a sphere because it has the least surface area as compared to any other shape thus, the soap film tends to become circular in shape. Now that being said...the best way to create smoke rings is PRACTICE! and lots of it...

First things first is to relax u will never get anything accomplished when ur trying too hard.

It helps to take a Big Toke off the shisha as more smoke will give you more to work with

With your mouth closed, draw your tongue back in your mouth towards your throat, keeping it pointing down towards the bottom of your mouth so that the smoke moves away from your lips.

Shape your mouth into an "O" shape, but stick your lips out as if you were making an "oo" sound (like in the word 'boot'). The circle should be as big as you can comfortably make it. And make little coughing motion with your throat. Don't stress too much--leave room for movement. You will look rather ridiculous to everyone else, until they realize you're about to blow their minds.

There are alot of tutorials online, maybe a video one will help u more. Check youtube for some.

The best of luck to you!

I have the uncanny ability to blow my smoke in the shape of a cloud.But I'm not gonna tell how I do it! your just gonna have to practice. And don't be dissapointed if you have trouble the first few tries, it may take awhile to get it down. But in the end? mmmmmmm.....clouds!

Lmao heard about that.

I think the "dragon" is when you blowing one smoke ring inside of another (I can do that since I've got skills :P )

The "spider" probabaly is a trick only out of luck. LIke for example, ya blow out some smoke, take a picture, and it sorta ends up looking like a spider. Lmao that's my own explanation

My mate can do hearts ..he put his finger on his lips and somehow does it its so kewl i tried and failed lol you can also flow smoke into bubbles which is quite cool...you can also do double rings by using your ring technique by putting a finger pointing towards your nose but in the middle of your o shaped mouth..takes a few tried but you'l get the hang of it eventually...

i picked up rings pretty quickly, and the double rings with the finger in the "shishing" position wasn't too hard to accomplish either. I just so happened to blow my first heart the other day, but like stated above, it's usually just a distortion of a ring. The heart started out as a ring, and the top took a wicked spin and went toward the center, i wouldn't have seen it without a bystander saying something cause i wasn't paying attention cause i just thought it was any other ring. Point is, if you get anything other than a ring, it's purely luck, sweet as hell luck, but try doing it again

also, for cherios... try tapping your cheek with the middle and index finger rapidly as you let out a constant flow of smoke from a small "whistling" lip position, you'll get about 40 little o's every time, they don't live for wayy too long, but it looks pretty sweet

:: To make smoke rings ::
-> make a wistle mouth
-> and push out (very slight) ticks of smoke with your tongue
-> (or poke ur cheak or move your chin up/down )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYwt-...eature=related

:: To change the ring size ::
-> You can make diffrent sizes of smokerings by changing your wistle-mouth-opening-size

small rings travel faster , big ones move slow

so after being able to do both , you can first blow a big one , and then make a small one go through it ...

:: Nose-rings ::
you can make smokerings come out of your nose , by opening and closing the soft palate above the back of ur tongue ..

(this took me lotz of practise)(result = small funny rings)

:: Dampkap / Drawback ::

Theres the trick in belgium we call "DAMPKAP"
-> you fill up your mouth with smoke
-> and then while you inhale trough your nose : push out the smoke in your mouth

(This makes the smoke stream out your mouth into your nose)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FMy3scTi0w

:: REDRAW SMOKE ::
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs2ZD...eature=related
the trick is to blow less / suck more =P

If making rings doesn't work out for u ,

learn from them

or blow bubbles http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=2qbKf66KpIM
