Haze In Spray Can

Published :

Hi,

Anyone familiar with haze in a spray can? What is your opinion?

Not considering it for filling up a ballroom or anything of that sort. Looking for a name or a supplier. If anyone knows where to find in Germany even better.

Don't know about Germany but I use it for various small effect on table tops and sometimes with people. Works great!

I recall the product is called 'Magican'. Not that impressive if you want any really dense haze, but okay for light diffusion.

Hi Walter,

Any chance on a name? I need a lead so I can do some research. Made some local calls but no success so far.

Thanks.

The stuff is called "Diffusion in a Can" (or the brand name of what I used was called that.

It has pretty good hang time - can't do a big room - it is NOT fog, more like light smoke.

Fairly colour neutral.

I vaguely remember that it uses a flammable propellant, so I think you do NOT want to use it in a campfire scene.

That's what I use. It has amazing hang time. As long as the air is still it stays there a long time. I'd use the word "haze" over "smoke". And a 20 ounce can will do a large area if need be, but it's best for small area effects. More like what an atomizer does in the end result.

Great. Appreciate the help. Thanks very much.
