Nothing special, just set your ColorsplashCam on B mode, press and hold the shutter and while you’re on it, just use a flashlight and write anything you want. And when satisfied let go of the shutter to splash the scene with your selected Chakra-colour. This is fun!

I think this is something elpussycat didn’t know, that this is actually can be done with the ColorsplashCam. So grab a camera and let everyone know that you're a Lomographer, now!

    I've tried to do this so many times but I can never find a pen light when I need one. :-(

    Also, I'm pretty sure you didn't mean "ephemeral" (temporary). Did you mean "ethereal" (heavenly; delicate; otherworldly)?
