Here is a short tutorial to learn how to make circles of smoke (or rather vapour) with an e-cigarette
Those who have been using e-cigarettes for some time know that by adjusting the settings of the e-cigarette and trying out new flavours of vape liquids, they can always customise their vaping experience differently.
What’s more, with e-cigarette vapour, it is also possible to create many surprising ‘choreographies’.
One of the most popular is to make smoke rings.
Would you like to learn how to make them?
If so, then read on because, in this article, we will explain how to make circles with an electronic cigarette, step by step.
Let’s get started.
Smoke circles: here are the tricks for making them successfully
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to make smoke circles, but so far, you’ve never managed to do so, it’s probably because you were unaware of a few essential facts.
First, it should be made clear that it is essential to produce very densely and full-bodied vapour (or smoke) to shape the rings successfully.
How do you do this?
It is not necessary to use liquids with high percentages of liquid nicotine. The secret ingredient is vegetable glycerine (VG), a component of the basic liquid for electronic cigarettes, which allows you to obtain dense, full-bodied clouds of vapour.

How to make smoke rings with an electronic cigarette? The technique, step by step
If you want to learn how to make circles with an e-cigarette, you have to make sure that there are no draughts in the place where you are (either indoors or outdoors). It is because a gust of wind could make all your efforts vain.
Now equip yourself with your device and your favourite creamy, tobacco or fruity liquids and proceed as follows.
- Inhale a large amount of vapour, but don’t push it into your lungs. Instead, keep it in your mouth. Close your lips immediately and hold your tongue very low and back well.
- Now, open your lips and position them as if you were going to pronounce the letter ‘O’. While doing this, remember not to stiffen your facial muscles.
- At this point, simulate a kind of coughing fit (more specifically, you should contract your glottis as if you were about to choke) and try to give the steam the right amount of pressure so that it can escape. As you do this, position your lips as if you were pronouncing the letter ‘U’.
If you cough during the first few attempts, don’t worry – it’s perfectly normal. However, managing the smoke in your throat and refining your technique takes a bit of practice.
During these operations, you have to learn not to breathe, not to move your jaws and to store the right amount of air to push the smoke out.
However, with a bit of practice, we are sure that you will create clear, compact and increasingly perfect rings that will amaze those around you.
Want to try alternatives to rings? Here are some more tricks with smoke
If you don’t feel experienced enough to make smoke (or steam) circles yet, or would like to add a few more ‘tricks’ to your repertoire, chances are you’ve wondered how to make a smoke waterfall or dragon trail.
To make the waterfall of smoke, you need to fill your mouth with lots of steam (again without inhaling).
Then push your lower lip forward and, while holding your mouth ajar, blow it out: you will see the steam cascade down towards the floor, just like a waterfall.
For the dragon trail, the first part remains the same, but the movement of the lips changes. After you have retained a lot of steam in your mouth, open it wide, curl your lips and then bring them together only in the middle.
While blowing out the steam (which will come out of the corners of your mouth), move your head in all directions: the dramatic effect is guaranteed!
Thanks to our guide, you can try out different choreographic shapes with the vapour from your e-cigarette. By enriching the e-liquid base with fruit, tobacco or cream flavours for e-cigarettes, your toys will look good and taste and smell good.
