The magician displays a lit match, cigarette lighter, candle or some other lit source. He points his finger toward the flame and a violent burst of fire shoots forth! This natural chemical poweder comes in an amble sized container for many performances, and also serves as the container. It is relatively safe, as safe as fire can be. Do not use near curtains, carpet, or ignitable surfaces. Note that we cannot sell this item to minors. This item CAN BE SHIPPED through the US Mail without problem because it is not flammable in its bulk state. 003CBM
