Hello I just had a friend on the phone who tried to make xerox copies of patterns and drawings on flash paper to perform an effect.
Needless to say that the effect started right in the copy machine...
Something to be aware of no ?

Hopefully, your friend was simply "enlightened", and not burned.

Laser Printer, and copiers, and the like all use a fuser wire to set the image, and it gets very hot and can act just like an igniter.

Any kind of mechanical handling/processing of flash paper is potentially risky. But Bublle jet printers (try at your own risk) offer fewer obvious problems.

However, remember, sparks of any kind Can set off the FP, so be careful.

News from him. He was lifetime expelled from the copy machines shop but was not hurt (who cares anyway...). The bad news is that the copy machine is wrecked definitely.
