Posted:Hi!

I was wondering about making isis heads, like salza are making.
Basically, I understand the knot, but there is something I didn't really figured out: does it uses one layer or two? I mean, do I start from the end, go to center and finish, or do I go back all the way to the edge again end finish then?
I thought they use the second method but when I tried it (with 10 mm rope) it came out really big, about 26 mm parimeter...

what do you say?
thanks,
Daniel

Posted:Work from the end of the staff down as long as you want the wick to be, then double over and go back over the top for big burn of just finish there for normal.

Posted:I don't think they are doing a double method. It looked like it had a core to me when I first saw it too and that make me think it was some kind of macrame but really I think it is just some kind of basic twisted lanyard.

Does the single layer wick give enough burning time?

Posted:Certain. The single layer wick with 10mm (what they use) is about 3-4 minutes at fast spinny rate. smile

Posted:well... I did an experiment today with 15 cm of 10mm rope, both one and two layers...

I can certainly say that two layers is way too big... 8 minutes of huge fire and lots of heat also quit heavy.... not something I want 70 cm from the place I'm doing contact. however, the one layer is a bit too small. I mean, it is big, and burn over 5 minutes, but since my staff is long, I can have something a bit bigger.

I though about trying isis staff with 12.5mm rope (1 layer). what do you say?
