Posted:I played around with a couple differnt designs for the cage over the weekend. here's what I found. I got a gutter straner and just shove'd it full of steel wool. When spun it worked on and off for like 2 mins however I was very dissapointed. I liked the inside wire cage much better. I basicly put like 4 chunks of wool on the wire and then just twisted it up into a hook for my chains when spun they launch every peice and last for about a minute.------------------We are all in the cosmic movie.

Posted:Dont try to hard to make the Sparkly Poi! Your only going to use them once. I grabbed some bailing wire and put 4 steel wool pads and cinched them into a ball with 2 strands of bailing wire around them, twisted off the ends, and attached them to my chains. Soaked em in Kero and sparks went everywhere. Only took a minute to make.Love always,Spanky

Posted:Oh, so much restraint not to post my usual sarcastabitch response. Watch as I dig deep and try to be positive...Hey, Flash Fire (you must have been sleeping when this one was posted because it doesn't have your scream yet...) since you and I have a mutual love for this subject, perhaps you could put a definative "HOW TO MAKE SPARKLY POI" in the FAQ under SPARKLY Poi.I know that people could search but if we included step-by-step instructions in the FAQ itself, we could probably save quite a bit of time/effort/aggrivation.I will leave you again with my HaikuCry not sparkly poiapocalypse of steel woolquestions are endless

Posted:I will say this, in the sparkly Poi threads I have read these little cage designs haven't been covered, so at least something new was learned....however, use the search and you WILL get more ideas.(See, I can be nice FF

)That being said, I agree with not putting a hell of alot of effort into them, they burn out waaaaaaay to fast to spend time on.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...
