    Ive had issues of the plastic straw melting and smothering the fuse causing it to go out. I did have an idea last night though about dipping the black match string into some paper pulp to make a small 'paper layer' around the fuse like a chinese cracker fuse..

    That could probably work. What you want to do is place the blackmatch in a confined space.
