Hi guys,
I have a challenge for you: I had an idea last night: floating ball, the stage version, on fire. I thought of a couple of ways to do that but here is
the problem: black art method will not resist to heat.

All suggestions are welcome. Also, any of you know any books on handling
of the floating ball.

In exchange, I offer to work on any problem you have.
Thank you, very appreciated

Since the ball of fire will be a fairly bright source of light, you should consider some of the techniques used in traditional black art.

You may not need to change the material used. All you should have to do is contain the fire to the top third (or so) of the sphere, and make sure the connection points aren't metallic, and therefore won't conduct heat.

I know the is a substance similar to alcohol but burns red. My chemistry teacher demonstrated it, and it wil burn in a specific area, and stop burning (without burning anything else) after the chemical is all used. You could use this chemical, and using techniques similar to Thomas Wayne's response (I recommend using a rubber, or plastic ball), pull off this effect. As to the chemical, I will ask him tomorrow, and post it on the form later.
