Question:

I never have a great place to hide the flash paper before I use it to make the vanishing candle disappear, lance Burton style. I read some make a gimmick and hide it in a candle. Can we get some ideas?

Wrap a piece of flash paper around the white end of a wand. A small piece of tape holds it. Touch tip to flame-flash-vanish.

If I understand your question you want to pick up and hold the vanishing candle then grab the piece of flash paper and use the lit candle to ignite the flash paper and vanish the candle-- correct.

if so I have been doing this for 15 years. I will share a few ideas.

1-being a vanishing candle the candle is sitting in the candle holder - so when you pick up the candle holder to remove the candle the flash paper is taped to the holder. as you set it down you just hold on to the paper. of course just tape a slight corner of the paper so that it will release easily.
2-just like a match pull except its just a clip that holds the flash paper under you collar - once you remove the candle you reach up with other hand and pull out the paper light and vanish

just a tip from my lecture- add just a tiny bit of sparkle additive to the flash paper and roll it up like a cigarette and twist it so that the sparkle does not leak out.
only put the sparkle additive to one end. light that end first and as the sparks drop so does the candle.

ill have to find my video. I stopped my candles a few years ago when I created a new routine but been itching to put them back in.

if you have any other questions feel free to ask. I can skype and show you what to do if you would like,
