Bubble machines are making a comeback in the special effect world. Machines that make bubbles and fog have been on the market for years. The new technology in special effects is bubble machines that make fog bubbles. The machine blows fog solution into the bubble as it's being made, and when the bubble pops, fog is released into the air. Regular bubble machines are not designed to do this. You need to have a machine made for blowing fog into the bubble.

  1. 1

    Fill the bubble machine with bubble solution in the bubble solution tank. There should be a fill line for all solutions in a bubble machine. Fill to that line. Overfilling may cause the machine in operate incorrectly.

  2. 2

    Fill the machine with fog solution in the fog tank. The solutions have separate tanks so the fog part of the machine can blow fog into the bubble as it's being created.

  3. 3

    Clean the bubble wands if they have been used previously by removing them and rinsing with water. Bubble solution can build up and make them gunky.

  4. 4

    Replace the bubble wands and plug in the machine. Turn the power on if it has a separate switch. Some machines allow you to turn one part off and just use bubbles or fog separately. Set the machine to make fog bubbles.
