Flame effect

Recommended Posts

SO i got my hands on a replica fireplace, a small one, used to be a heater, but i gutted it after the magic smoke took care of the motor. I am gonna ntry and get my hands on a 1 foot section of a ws2811 strip and mount them inside the fake logs. I have been playing in SS< but can not seem to get a ,flamer effect. If all else fails, i will just just a flickering red, but would like a nice flame, make it look so much better. I plan to use this as a donation box at christmas time.

Jerry ~ Wouldn't you be better off with strips hanging down from the top and behind or intertwining the logs ? That way you could create alternating flame heights. Also remember there is blue, red, yellow, orange and sometimes a little green in flames. But a very light hint of blue, orange yellow may look good.

Hopefully your donation box doesn't get "donated".

I'm all for using superstar to create a flame effect, but you might also consider some of the simulated flames you can buy at Halloween stores. They are basically an orange light and a fan that blows upward on sheets of plastic that wave around and reflect the orange light.

Yes, but where would the fun be in that?

They also have the projection that shine on the house I used those with a fog machine to give the fire and smoke effects

I use the fire projection that you point at the house to make it look like the house is on fire which you can do several different ways mine are in a planter style box with foil on the inside and the I have a fog machine that enters through the side with a pipe that goes all the way to the other side when everything is going it looks just like a fire pit smoke and all
