Can A Sparkler Burn Without Smoke?

When you think of a sparkler then a simple image may come to mind: children running around on holidays holding wire sticks that fizz and spark with light. There is usually a fun popping sound and smoke coming off from them in cloudy bursts. Sparklers are a popular choice for celebrations, including weddings. A sparkler can be a beautiful addition to wedding photos, especially a sparkler send-off where everyone holds up sparklers to follow the retreating newlyweds. Weddings are a precious memory for the whole family; who wouldn’t want it to look as incredible and classy as possible? Defining Smokeless Sparklers A sparkler burns, and burning produces smoke. There’s no way to avoid this entirely because smoke is a product of fire. Often sparklers give off colorful smoke as one way to keep it from impeding on the overall effect. A smokeless sparkler gives off little-to no smoke, most of it popping from the initial lighting of the sparkler. This gives a much cleaner look for the event and photos, making sure the bride and groom don’t have to worry about plumes of smoke covering their faces or ruining the symmetry in photos. Can Sparklers Be Totally Smokeless? After the initial lighting, smokeless sparklers burn without creating any noticeable amounts of smoke. The smoke visible is as wispy and fleeting as what a candle flame produces. This means they are as close to smoke-free as is humanly possible. You can shop for sparklers in three different sizes to fit your...

Let's look at seven fun ways to turn the simple sparkler into a staple of every celebration! 1. Sparkler Send-Off For Weddings There are many ways to see the bride and groom off after their special day. Tradition calls for the guests to throw rice. More modern takes have guests throwing rose petals or blowing bubbles. Nothing beats a sparkler send-off though. Picture it - the lights are out, the guests all light their sparklers. The bride and groom then walk under a canopy of golden sparks. Seems easy enough but there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure you buy wedding sparklers that will last long enough. A 36-inch sparkler lasts for four minutes, 20 inch sparkler lasts two minutes, and 10 inch sparkler lasts for four seconds. Second, be safe. Don't hold the sparkler directly over the couple.

How Hot Are Sparklers? The Science Behind Your Wedding Light Show

According to a report from MPR, wedding sparklers can burn as hot as a blow torch. But there's much more to the science and safety of sparklers than this simple statement. While facts like this may sound alarming, in reality, sparklers are nothing like handling a large open flame! So how hot are sparklers really? And if they're as hot as some claim, why don't they feel that hot? Keep reading to find out the basics of how sparklers are made, the science behind our sparklers, and what gives them their namesake sparkle. Shop Your Sparklers Now! Where were Sparklers Invented? Most people know that fireworks originated in China. But what about the sparkler? The first sparkler is actually believed to have come from Heliopolis, one of the major cities of Ancient Egypt. While evidence points to the first sparkler being a weapon, it was quickly adapted for festivals and celebrations. As far back as AD 670, people were celebrating love and victory with sparklers -- just as we do today! What are Sparklers Made of? There are four key components to any sparkler: fuel, an oxidizer, a binder, and metal powder. These chemicals are mixed with water to create a paste. This paste is then coated onto the sparkler "handle" and allowed to dry. The fuel is what keeps the sparkler burning all the way down once it's been lit. Without this the sparkler would die out shortly after being lit -- nobody wants to relight their sparkler several...

Sparkler Writing: How to Take Great Photos of Your Wedding Sparkler Messages

Think weddings are over? A popular belief is that the younger generation no longer believes in marriage. Despite that claim, around 35% of adults in the country still want to get married at some point in their lives. Weddings are great milestones in life, with the union of two lovers cementing their relationship into something almost inseparable. A great way to accentuate your wedding is the use of sparklers. There are a lot of unique things you can do with it. But if you want to make great memories, you can make sparkler writing and take photos with it. Read on if you want to know how to take sparkler messages on your wedding day like a pro. 1. The Set Up You need to collaborate with your wedding photographer with this. They need to use long shutter speeds or Bulb mode if their camera has the capabilities. The photographer needs to have a tripod to put the camera on since the lack of support will result in shakes that can spoil the shots. If they don't have a tripod, a good alternative is a level surface where the camera can rest without movements. Working in Bulb mode needs a remote or cable release since the shutter needs to be open. A shake can appear in your shot even if you hold down the shutter button with your finger. Without the use of Bulb mode, your photographer needs to set the exposure going. They can use the self-timer option of...
