I promised to do a short review about this, but I have not done it myself yet! It looks like it’s a lot of work and I’m not sure if the chemicals are easy to obtain.

You will need normal matches and XL matches, and you have to do some working on the matches before applying the chemicals. You need to mix chemicals, put it on the matches and spay them with hairspray. Than a special kind of oil has to be in a matchbox, ready to be used during the performance. Everything has to be done with great care and looks a little dangerous, just be careful. It has to be done at least 3 hours about before the show (that’s what it takes to dry).

From the moment you mix the last two chemicals that will lead into the combustion (during performance, easy to do and well motivated), it will take about 10 to 15 seconds for the match to light. Again this is what is told and shown on the video, and I have not been able to test this myself because I don’t have all the precise materials/chemicals yet…

Even if this takes some work and special precaution, I think if you perform this, it will be great and people will love it.

Best,
John

Another thing is that I have NOT found a way to do this with an unburned match, because the chemicals will color the tip black.

Ideas to make it work with an unburned match are very welcome Smile

[EDIT] In the studio performance the delay was 30 seconds!

So I finally made a batch of the prepared matches, I am not sure though if it'll still work after few more days. Will inform you about it in few days.

When you have the time and nerve to get all the stuff to create your matches, this is a great effect!

Like Squando, I'm patiently waiting on nomermindmaster to report back on his findings.

I have never heard of a person that uses this. Wish someone would chime in.

I spent a few days searching . Worth the effort but I am quite surprised those " special " matches could be found in cold storage ... As for those " ch******s ". , it is pretty easy to find although I spent 20 bulks on the p******* p********** .
