Fountains make delightful silver or gold colonnades, fans and fronts for events on stage, or intimate outdoor events.
Fountains come in two versions, silver or gold. Gold is a very delicate colour, and would only be used in nearly total darkness. Silver is much brighter and can be used even when the lights are very bright. For instance see the photo of the bizarre bra section of Wearable Art where the fountains are still dominant even though the lighting is very bright.
Fountains come in a small range of heights from 1.2 up to 3.5 metres. The burning times are from three to 30 seconds. Long burning fountains will start lower and build up to their maximum height for the last two thirds of their display.
In the standardised pictures you can see how the lighting is so bright the colours are brought up, and it hides anything behind it very well. A wall of these can be used as cover for a very fast scene change.
Fountain type effects also are created in flame pots, in which range we have our very pretty three second gold flame pot five metres high.
In the standardised pictures you can see the gold flame pot contrasts very well with the blue flame pushing up the sparks, but the light output is much lower.
Both the gold sparks and the silver sparks in are not particularly hot, and a hand can be brushed through these without trouble.
Fountains are principally smokeless, but if a large number are used there will be a smoky haze produced.
