Ignite a massive flame sure to impress any-sized audience! Our Lycopodium Torch allows you to sprinkle up to 2 ounces of lycopodium powder into the torch. Turn the average flame from a Kevlar wick into a huge fireball, stepping up the wow factor of any live performance! Aluminum tubing with overgrip is durable and will not overheat.
Lycopodium powder is an additive to fire spinning, where you can dramatically increase the size of your prop’s flame! This substance is a fine dry powder made from a plant called Lycopodium. It has been used as a fire enhancer for hundreds of years! Sprinkle just a little bit into your Lycopodium torch flame for a huge fireball! With 36 ounces of powder, this container should be sufficient for over a dozen performances.
Lycopodium has been used in fireworks, explosives, fingerprint powders, as a covering for pills, and as an ice cream stabilizer. Today, the principal use of the powder is to create flashes or flames that are large and impressive but relatively easy to manage safely in magic acts and fire-spinning performances.
Use with caution, training, and safety preparation. Don’t use it in the wind. Don’t inhale during the explosion, because you may inhale the burning powder.
