So it would be cool to have this:

but since I don't have the time or know-how to make one like that, Does anyone do fire blowing from something besides a torch? I was thinking it would be cool to blow fire into a fire glove (maybe something a bit lower tech), but don't see anything existing on the internet. Ive seen a leather glove with torches coming out the fingers, but nothing like a glove on fire.If it can be done, does anyone know of how this could be done?

The glove is not the problem. Remarkably easy actually. The potential problem would be the spit fuel dripping down the glove and onto the arm (Larger surface area than the torch collecting more fluid and potentially dripping while on fire).
The glove itself should not need to be more elaborate than a thick leather glove with strategically placed kevlar wicking adhered in place with elmers glue. Perhaps using a longer welders glove to cover the forearm might alleviate any drippage issues.

Just thinking out loud here. I have made a lot of fire tools and this seems pretty straight forward.

The late Chappy Brazil marketed a simplier version of this called the Hand Dragon. It was a very nice device that I used in the Big Apple Circus back in 1996.
