I applied the concepts from my Fire Breathing video to my Pneumatic Cannon and ended up with a cool backyard flame thrower that turns ordinary flour into flaming balls of fire.

    This is a really good design but what did you you use for the flame for the air canon? All I see is a big long stick with fire on it..Can you explain that?

    This is EXACTLY what I did for Maker Faire KC. It's downright ironic how close this is to what I ended up doing. It works very well.
