Does anyone have any idea of what could potentially be used to make a fluorescent smoke/fog/vapor, or some already-made product/solution? Is it possible? Google brings up very very little.

1) Obtain some fluorescein dye solution, in whatever concentration might work best. I am not sure whether the sodium salt version or something else might work better.

2) Get an ultrasonic humidifier (not a heat-type vaporizer) and charge the reservoir with the solution. Turn it on.

Warning: this could be very messy. Do this away from clothing, carpets, furniture, etc.

Out of interest, did this work? I have been thinking about this and thought to add tonic water to the fog juice solution in a fog machine although that is a heat-type vaporizer.
