Well, I think that there is a very good chance that it will. Storebought smokebombs will, and they are not overly powerful. I would try it, but depending on how you have made you smokebombs, it may go out. For instance, if you have it in a tube with endcaps, then it would probably work. If it is just a lump, then you make have to let it ignite, than kick it into the water. But, I would try just a little, and see if it works anyway. Oh yeah, I forgot, this mix is very water absorbant. It collects it out of the air!! It might, absorb so much water that it doesn't work. But then again, it might not do it in time. I would just try it with a little lump, what have you got to lose?

There is actually a very high moisture content to the finished mix. That's what makes it so pliable. I Have burned small amounts of this underwater befor, and it looks awesome. Most of the time you have to let the mixture ignite before submersion, but depending on cooking time and other factors, this stuff can ignite and burn underwater.

Yes you did. Thank you by the way, you have saved me alot of preparation time. I used the pricipal of dissolving the chemicals in water to increase the eficiency of the burn. I just used a lot more KNO3. Oh, and the kind they made wasn't pliable at room temp. and mine is.

EDIT: Not to mention that they didn't have the actual amounts of ingredients you needed, they jus bsically showed the process.
