    At The Effects Shop, we are proud to offer the largest range of smoke emitters in Australia. Our collection of colour smoke emitters is perfect for photographers, SFX technicians, and anyone in need of creating stunning visual effects. With a variety of durations and colours available, you can bring your creative vision to life with ease.

    Our smoke emitters are designed to burn slowly, emitting plumes of safe, non-toxic coloured smoke. You can choose from a range of colours including blue, orange, yellow, red, green, dark grey, and more. Whether you need a 45-second burst or a 6-minute spectacle, we have the perfect smoke emitter for your specific requirements.

    It's important to note that while our smoke emitters are safe and non-toxic, they do burn hot and can stain nearby objects. We recommend using them on non-flammable surfaces such as aluminium pie trays to prevent any potential staining. Additionally, we provide detailed instruction sheets with each order to ensure safe and responsible usage.

    For added versatility, our colour smokes are compatible with each other, allowing you to create custom colour combinations and effects. Whether you're working on photography projects, film productions, or special effects displays, our smoke emitters are a valuable addition to your creative toolkit.  In addition to our standard smoke emitters, we also offer perfumed smoke for a sensory dimension, as well as clean smoke that's suitable for testing in sensitive areas without leaving any residue. We even have a 6-minute white smoke emitter available for specialized applications such as pipe leak and tunnel testing.

    To enhance your experience with our smoke emitters, we offer reusable smoke cartridge holders as well as disposable options for added convenience. These accessories ensure a hassle-free and safe usage of our smoke emitters, allowing you to focus on your creative projects without worry.

    At The Effects Shop, we are committed to providing high-quality smoke emitters and accessories that meet the diverse needs of our customers. Whether you're a professional photographer, special effects artist, or hobbyist, you can trust our products to deliver impressive results every time.

  • Need to smoke on stage? Or in a film?  Non -smoker?  Our Actor Puff Cigarettes are ideal. The  paper wrapped tube contains a cotton inner filling that is sprinkled with cornstarch which, when blown OUT, creates a smoking effect for just a few puffs. This product is not intended to be inhaled by the user. Features a simulated printed filter and a novel orange-red metallic "cherry" on the end that glints in the light, creating the effect of a glowing end. A bit of fake ash and burnt paper end completes the illusion of a real burning cigarette. These are inexpensive, but nicely made and can work out well when this type of prop is all that is needed. Well made, high quality.  Just blow and a puff of smoke comes out.   5-8 puffs per smoke, your mileage may vary.  Stock level is the number of packs of 10 we have in stock.  Pack of 10  $9.25 (Our Puff Cigarettes contain cornstarch- beware of Puff Cigarettes sold elsewhere containing Talc which are BANNED in Australia)
