    This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image for the project, even if it's just a video that you're trying to publish.

    Please do that, and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work.

    Thanks!

    Interesting! You say to wait till it goes out. What if you need to put it out for an emergency. What is the safe way to extinguish the flames?

    I don't know the particulars of that specific flame, but I'd use something inflamable to cover it up - probably a lid from large enough a pot. In my opinion this is preferrable to trying to blow it out (wort case: you distribute burning particles over a large area) or using water (since I don't know how well the burning stuff reacts to it - besides, a lid is cleaner ;))

    Mix borax with the HEET to create a bright green flame.
