Posted:Hi guys. I'm fairly new to this site, so if this question sounds silly, many apologies.
I do fire staff, and I've been having a problem with burn time. I'll be doing a performance, and my flames will go out within 2-3 minutes. However, I see videos of fire performers going for 10 or so minutes. Any pointers?
Posted: Well, having thicker wick will increase your burn time, as it can hold more fuel compared to the surface area. I don't think there's much you can do to increase the length of your burn without altering the prop.
But I have to admit, 10 minutes seems a bit high for a single burn - most seem to be around the 5-6 minute mark, maybe a little higher- as you said it was something you've seen from videos, are you sure that's all footage of a single burn, rather than having prop switches which are edited out? Hope that's helpful
