Step 1: Get the Parts :)

to get your fingers smoke, we use a substance to rub between your fingers. we get this substance by burning the strike parts of a matchbox (the side you use to light a match) carefully try to remove as much paper as possible ( no problem if you dont do that but it will cause more fire and smoke)

now we have the fuel, next we want to get the lid of a jar ( see the other pic) we want to put the fuel onto the jar so when we burn it, a brown resedue is left. that is what we are aiming for.
for the amount in the picture i burned 3 parts.


next get the brown stuff on your fingers and rub them together. see the magic happening :D

NOTE: WASH YOUR HANDS CAREFULY AFTER DOING THIS!!

Step 2: Q & A

the questions:

1: what is the brown stuff left?

2: is there another way to get this stuff?

3: if you have any questions yourself add them in the comments and i will add them to the list :D lets help eachother :D
