Introduction: FIRE WRITING


the easy way to make writing with fire.

Step 1: Gather Fire Materials will need a lighter, or match.
2.a tube of flammable glue ( i found that the super glue brand fix-all glue works the best BUT DONT USE REGULAR SUPER GLUE IT IS DANGEROUS)
3.a space where you wont burn anything down and is well ventilated.

Step 2: Writing

I have this spray de-icer that contains methanol which gives off a nice blue glow without all the smoke. Do it at night - during the day it is hard to see. Nice

Spray deodorants do the same, though I don't recommend doing this at 3 in the morning, while everyone is asleep and you're very bored. On the other hand, if you make a spray deodorant flame thrower while inside, it creates an awful lot of carbon monoxide, makes any fire alarms in the vicinity go off (including ones not even in the same room).

or on the school bus. oops my friend and i had a war on the bus using flaming spray deoderant cans it singed the hairs off of my arms.

Your school bus must be pretty crazy.

LinuxH4x0r (author)hcold2008-07-13

Hehe, yep. Actually its the ionized smoke itself, not CO that makes the detectors go off.

hand sanitizer or lighter fluid works best for me :)

Berkin (author)2009-06-11

I'll mix alcohol with Elmer's glue!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAA

cclark13 (author)2009-06-09

rubber cement works the best

There is also a product called "One match" by Rutland. It is intended for starting up pellet burning products but I find it fun to write with or squeeze out a blob of it and light on fire. You can find it at fireplace specialty stores or at some hardware stores. Worth finding.

use hand sanitizer like the kind you get at dollar stores works great and spreadable and can relight over and over makes cool blue flame and no mess after its great

Evilblaze (author)2009-04-02

Actually this is not a good idea. From burning glue you get black fumes what are carcinogen. Don't do this if you want to die in cancer...... //and it is not good for the environment:-D

Feral_Messiah (author)2008-08-21

Metho: cheap, simple blue flame without the toxic fumes... Also, it's hot enough to light a fire-staff from!

MilotisX (author)Feral_Messiah2009-02-15

isn't that rubbing alcohol

Vulcanator (author)MilotisX2009-03-24

no. rubbing alcohol is isopropanol (C3H7OH) not methanol (CH3OH) the simplest of alcohols

Use white-out. A lot more affective smells bad and leaves charred remains so clean up so your parents don't find out. A lot more powerful and so much better. Not knocking on the crazy glue but WHITE OUT IS SOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER. Easier to write with and a lot more defined.

im_tux (author)PizzaPlanet2008-03-13

heh my parents found the marks left by this and me and me bro got the talkin to

PizzaPlanet (author)im_tux2008-03-21

sorry, hey not liable

Tennismaster58 (author)2008-07-05

A bit obvious am i right?

yellowsushimustard (author)2008-06-24

you could also use spray paint, ive done it before and it works pretty well. the flames arn't that high so it makes it easier to read

WICKY W3AZZY (author)2008-06-24

ok sorry but, thats doesnt say fu. its a flaming mess. come on

QuestionableDoubt (author)2008-06-01

You're kidding, right? The fact that you can write with a flammable substance seems to strike me as common knowledge.

awkrin (author)2008-05-31

this is rather: how to write on a surface using fire. if u'r using anything like u used, it must be over a large area to be able to read, because if I wouldn't have seen what u written while it wasn't burning, I couldn't read it. u should use something like smashed fire starter(solid one) and make an even line, or make a thin line with some aerosol spray

I thought I'd just share, but lets say you want to leave a message, burned into someones drive way say... forever. Buy some rubber cement, spell out your message, then light in on fire. The only way to get rid of the burn marks is too tear up the cement, lol. Trust me its there forever.

I did that with plastic glue. it smokes like crazy and smell aweful tho. I tried using lighter fluid, and it looks AWESOME.

GorillazMiko (author)2007-09-20
