Smoking Fingers Trick

Introduction: Smoking Fingers Trick

This is a cool and simple trick to amaze your friends with! The only things you will need is a box of matches, a lighter and some scissors.

Step 1: Cutting

Step one: Cut out a striking surface of the box of matches.

Step 2: Folding

Step two: Fold the piece in half like I did on the photo.

Step 3: COld

Step three: Put the folded piece of matchbox on a cool surface, such as a water tap while cold water is flowing. The cold surface of the tap will cause condensation of the smoke created in the next step.

Step 4: Fire!

Step four: Take your lighter and burn the hell out of that piece of matchbox!
Just set it on fire while it is standing on your water tap. The tap needs to stay cold so keep the cold water flowing.
After that throw it away and discover the brown substance (tar) on the surface of the tap. (crappy picture)

Step 5: Amaze Your Friends

Last step!
Put the brown substance on your fingers and when everyone is watching rub your fingers together. Everyone will be amazed! :D

    can you carry around the ashes? if you can, can you tell me how to put the powder in a container, say a jar, without getting any of it trapped on another item, e.g. fingers, sticks, brushes, etc.

    no, you keep it cool with the water flowing through the tap. rubbing your fingers only lets the powder disperse
