Thanks for the input.
I understand what you guys are saying. Keep in mind that I'm not talking about fire-breathing around people's dinner... but take 3rd Degree Burn
for instance, it's practicality lies in that you need a small
flame from a lighter or, at worst, the ambiance candle that's already on the table. No set-up, no re-set... so long as there's a candle on the table or butane in your lighter, you're good to go.
Those are the type of 'practical fire effects' I'm after.
But back to the main purpose of this thread, I should also point out that I don't plan on doing Angela Funovits' burning card trick at a restaurant either... I'm just after a name for the performed effect (not a made-up one please!
) because this in my opinion is a great display of mentalism/fire magic. Any help would be appreciated.
