Just a side note, and of no help... Years ago we could buy it as a cure for Athlete's Foot and also it was a popular cure for a fish disease.

Tony Andruzzi told me that he mixed broken up snake eggs (a kind of pyrotechnic novelty) with the other DD ingredient before adding the Gl*****n. This would account for the "tentacles." The urban legend is an add-on rather than a variant.

It is my opinion that TA knew just enough about chemistry to get himself in trouble.

Can you imagine someone treating their athlete's foot by first rubbing a glyercin based lotion on their feet, and then unknowingly, immediately apply the "secret ingrediant" ?
Instant hot foot ? Smile
Probably not, but it sounded funny to bring up.

It's amazing how cremains of humans and animals still retain the life force of the person even after the flame is gone and can be restored by adding a little reconstituted blood.

Could also use a little black art and some flash paper to cause a small animal or bird to appear when the flame ignites. Supposedly the animal or bird that was cremated.

Or maybe some spiritual form could appear.

Bill P.,

Thanks for the grinding tip. I use the stuff I got from Mark Ghia's version (and to his credit he actually tells you what the chemical is), and he sells it ground pretty finely, so I've rarely had problems using it. And since I use it only for starting large bonfires in the Summer in my back yard (while a great distance away, with my wand and some magical chanting, of course), I use only about a tablespoon a month. I believe the chemical is also used, somehow, in water purification systems, but given the VERY toxic nature of the chemical, I still can't figure out how!

I am still fascinated by the green crystals embedded in the "aftermath" of the effect. I have even spoken to a university chem professor who has speculated what they might be, but I'd love to find someone who knows organic chem well enough to actually figure the reaction products!

Anybody know what those green crystals are? Would they be good as a sprinkle on cupcakes (JUST KIDDING FOLKS!!!) Smile

Best,

Dave

Green Crystals...

Y'know... I wonder if you could use demon dirt to replicate the destruction of Krypton... leaving kryptonite... as part of a small scale version of telling the story of Superman....

Just a thought...

Hi Sid. Good to see you are still around. Ah, the stories that could be told about the many misaventures of abortive attempts of performing Demon Dirt. If one should note in The Scroll it was I who originated the appearence of the 'demon'. I showed it to Tony at an early MOTM. I didn't have an effect, I was just able to produce this really neat 'thing' that looked for all the world like a feotid, bonsai like... well, 'thing'. 'Twas the beginning of a wonderful friendship. ***, I miss him. Give my regards to you wife and have a fun filled newyear. Keep in touch.

It's been over a year since the last post and it seems no one is using this stuff anymore. I made ten test packets with the stuff using different numbers of G******* drops and guess what? It didn't work until I lit it with a lighter. Maybe it's too humid right now. I don't know. The effect I use it for could go off with an alternative method because I just need a flash of fire without showing a flame first. The stuff is too tricky to trust during a performance so if anyone has any ideas...LEGAL ideas lol...please let me know. Thanks

There was a new thread on this less than 2 weeks ago. Some good tips in there as well.

Did you read the biggest tip of them all here ??
To hell with the number of G****** drops you use, that has practically nothing to do with it ! That's all supposition unsupported by any real fact or experimentation, as far as I'm concerned.. I mean, yeah, you don't want to saturate the packet, but whether it's one drop or two or three doesn't matter.

The trick, (yet again), is to GRIND UP THE DAEMON'S DIRT IN A MORTAR AND PESTLE shortly before using it.
It will work everytime if you do this.

That oughta do it. Smile

Grind it and heat it. The heating it removes much of the moisture.

Don't heat it too much, though, or it might remove much of you... hehe
;)

I keep one of those silica gel desiccant packs in my PP .. er, DD stash. Two might not be a bad idea, actually.

I read it but just needed some positive reinforcement. A mortar and pestle it is. Besides, the stuff is a little hard to find now and the "experiments" used too much of it but it was a lot of fun watching it sputter and burn. Thanks!!!!
