hi everyone. Iv started doing fire eating recently but still just learning the basics and getting used to it for now. When i start adding it to my routine is it dangerous to do it after doing fire breathing because of the small amount of parafin that will still be in my mouth? basically wonderin if my mouth will set on fire lol thanks

If you're using paraffin, no your mouth won't go poof. Even I've done it. I'll breathe fire and then put out my torches by eating them.

The only luck is bad luck.

Logic would dictate that this is a terrible idea.

Scrub up on The Dangers of Firebreathing.

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

Yeah, anyone who eats and especially breathes fire should know what they are getting into and accept it all before they go and be stupid. I myself have agreed to be stupid occasionally. And paraffin won't light unless it's in a wick or aerosolized. Unless it might do it at even higher temps, I'm not entirely sure about that.

The only luck is bad luck.

Paraffin has a flash point of something like 180C.
But like SpinnerofDetroit you need to know what your getting your self in too.
Find the hazard data sheets and preferably find someone you uses it and speak too face to face.

i'd pretty much given up on fire breathing in my shows a couple of years ago but since I discovered the pyrofluid sold by https://www.feuershow.de/
I've brought it back into my work. no smell, no smoke, no taste, none of the horrible after effects of kero in your mouth, WIN.
as a side note though to fire breathers- it does burn hotter than kero so be careful!!

even chuck norris can't pin you down if your on fire
