Posted:I recently made my fire snakes which are just a tad on the ridiculous side laugh3 They are insanely heavy but I still am in love with them. And they GUZZLE fuel.

Posted:I used 1/2" x 1/8" Kevlar flat wick. And I used the corkscrew stitch. I sugget you make sure you can handle the weight first or at least not make them as big as I did laugh3 I'm lucky I can spin them and I learned from this vid I need to spin them faster.

Posted:Mason, that simply means you haven't yet played with an unreasonable amount of fire.

Fire snakes certainly fit into the categories that can egt up there, but i agree with LiquidTrance, practice for a while, and you learn to adjust for the weight.

It's the heat and fuel spray that takes longer to adjust for...
