This is a quick little tutorial on how to make a very short burning candle,

WARNING PLEASE DO THIS OUTDOORS AND IF YOU'RE UNDER 18 HAVE A RESPONSIBLE ADULT WITH YOU!

This is the equipment you need:

1* small glass jar + lid
1* old rag or cloth
1* several matches
1* can of deodorant
and some vaseline

Some steps of this guide will need to be followed fastly, Make sure you know what the plan is before you do it - Accidents make mistakes!



Step 1: Step One : Get the Jar Ready

You need to get the small jar and give it a quick rinse out with water,

Then you need to get some vaseline and line the opening of the jar. Not too much - you want a little smear and that is all.

Step 2: Step Two : Create the Candle

This part needs to be done fairly fast.

You need to cover the top of the deodorant can with a thin cloth.

Then get the jar nearby and spray the deodorant can through the cloth into the jar, This should give you a milky white liquid. Keep spraying the can until there is a thin layer covering the bottom of the jar.

Finish your spraying them put the lid on the jar : BE AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

This traps all of the flammable gas inside the jar for you to ignite later.

Step 3: Step Three : Ignite the Candle

This part will need to be done outside,

Put the jar on a flat surface - nowhere near flammable items.

Then you want to get a match - strike it - then take the lid off the jar and ignite the deodarant.

You SHOULD NOT lean over the jar as it will singe your eyebrows :/

With all things being good the deodorant should light up then start to burn the gas trapped in the bottom of the jar, as the vaseline heats up it will start to burn, Vaseline burns slowly


I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS - PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

I will upload a video in the non too distant future :)
