Posted:Pele, you mentioned doing wraps with fire.. How on earth with four wicks do you manage to keep from burning yourself?

Posted:The fire is in contact with my skin less than 5 seconds I would have to say. I whip into the wrap, which myfavorite is wrapping it around my waist and then turning the opposite direction out of it, which also changes direction of the swing and adds momentum. I am told it is really freaky to watch. Truthfully, catching fire isn't something I think or worry about at all so until you asked I had no idea.However, wrist wraps are above the fire on the chain, thigh wraps are two wicks to the front, two to the back of my thigh. Neck wrap (only while wearing a leather skull cap) is not really a full wrap but more of a laying the chain across the back of my neck and then ducking my head to the side and back, thus turning me 180 degrees and out of the wrap. For the four wicked wraps I wear full clothes while for regular fire poi I don't, I wrap on exposed skin. I think that helps as well.Did I answer your ??????Cheerios!
