Bubbling cauldron opinions please

I have been working the idea of having a bubbling cauldron this year and am thinking about what else I need to do. This is just a test run.


I tried with dish soap and got white bubbles even though I had food coloring so that idea was out. I then moved on to other ideas. I settled on flour, water, and food coloring. I like the effect for the most part. I have to thicken up the "soup" a bit, add more coloring, and put a flex hose in it to spread the bubbles around the cauldron.

Is there anything else that you can think of I should try? Also what do you think so far? Thx for your help!

I just found this article on the anitomical.com (buckys boneyard) website written by Ken Pitek. Its a great practical article on the uses of BL's with helpful tips for using them in your haunt...

Looks like the tonic water has the most bang for your blacklight buck...

Oh, and a mister does bubble if you place it on an inverted bowl very close to the surface of the water. It bubbles and spits, but sounds like not as much as you're looking for...
