Hello.
I am looking for a good way to have a wine glass fill with smoke either covered with a cloth or not. Either way it must seem magical and not just me openly squirting smoke into it. I have seen the glass with the obvious e-cig stem. Not interested in that one. I would also prefer the glass be upright and not inverted, though I can work around an upside down glass.
Anyway, any suggestions would be appreciated.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

Maybe I’m being simplistic but isn’t this a VERY old and simple effect? The standard method for all the years I remember was swirling the glass with ammonia, then pouring it out. A porous cardboard coaster would have HCL (Hydrochloric Acid) on it so when the coaster was placed over the glass as it was covered with the handkerchief, the chemical reaction would create smoke in the glass. Obviously the chemicals must be handled VERY carefully and not allowed to touch or come together, and yes, the smoke is toxic and should be released in an open area like on stage, not in a crowded bar. A slightly less toxic version is used in the film and television industry as A/B Smoke. You can get that here. https://rogergeorge.com/products/a-b-smoke

Thank you, Ray. But I need non toxic smoke and one where I can do it in the middle of my show.

I may have a solution. I am purchasing Sun Smoke Pro. I'll attach it to the back of a deck of cards. Put the deck in the glass and away I go. Not sure if I'll cover it with a cloth first.

Smoke pro has a kit that comes with the unit. It’s a hanky you put the smoke unit in and it fills a wine glass.

Whether or not it is still available, Rocco had put out a Smoke in Wineglass in the 90's. It was a stage only piece of apparatus but was pretty.
