how to make flaming wings for photos, using spark plug, gasoline and pipe? Answered

I wanted to create a fire effect using some type of combustible set up to simulate firey wings for various photographic projects. I thought maybe making a twin metal tube design out of copper with many little holes and a ignition tap with a gas reservoir. but have to think of how to ignite it safely, how much gas to use without being too dangerous and the proper expansion of the pilot holes. The ignition system should be something simple and reusable, probably a spark plug and battery system. anyone have any ideas or advice on how to do this? thanks.

They do have "flamethrower" units for torching grass/applying hot tar for roofing. They hook up to a BBQ propane gas tank. Or use a simple blowtorch with the piezo-spark pushbutton igniters. Gas probably doesn't give you the black smoke effect though, but much safer.
