So I have been fleshing for awhile. I open by lying on the ground and drawing a line down the profile of my body etc

I have watched other acts and would like to close the fan act by eating out the flame. But am not sure how. My heads are similar to the eating wands, but I want to be sure of fuel type and safetyI like my face

From personal experience of fleshing and eating and breathing, i would highly recommend a barrier lotion to protect your skin.

It is worth researching different types that are available to you in your area, but you will need to read any information on any products and make sure what kind of protection they give for what you intend to use said products for.

Thanks... i have no desire to breathe... yuck...
But with the fan dance and fleshing i do now, i think the eating would be a beautiful addition.

I do currently use udder butter on my skin befor performance. it seems to make a great diffrence.

Very sensible and wise idea!, but if you do please remember to research on the subject here.

We strive on trying to give people the best and current safety and technical details as possible.. so homeofpoi is always a good source of information when you need it.

Try searching for pooling, trailing, skin tracing, painting with fire...but mostly it is known as pooling and trailing formally. wink

ditto /// like pele said...

so many people post things as different names due to us having such a varied international user base.
Names differ from state to state, to country and so on. So we end up with quite a lot of double posting on these things.
Us (the members) are trying to deal with this right now and make things easier for all concerned.

But as before.. just ask and we are glad to help.
