I met this guy at Reading who said something about making poi out of wire wool and tin cans that throw sparks out when you spin them. Anyone heard anything about this?

Instead of waiting for an answer, you could always do a search.

This question has come up so many times before... smile

There's some instructions how to make some here. https://www.homeofpoi.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=3444

Next time, do a search, and bump a relevant thread, rather than make a new one

Wear thick clothes (that aren't flammable for chrissakes!) and goggles. Check the ground and surronding area is damp so nothing catches alight.

And make sure no one is anywhere near you.

You are kiddin, right?

You're not seriously going to tie some wire wool to fire poi and 'see what happens', eh?

Please don't. There's no need to use flying molten metal to prove how macho you are.

Research it properly (everything is available on this site... go to search and look for 'wire wool' or 'sparkly poi'). Research the dangers properly.

Don't do it by yourself... make sure you have a safety and someone who is experienced using this with you.

Of course, maybe you were going to do all this anyways. Maybe you were just kidding with the posts - if so, that's great smile

Take care
