Hi guys,

I've always stayed away from flash paper because of the fact that you have to use an obvious source of ignition ,like a lighter.

My idea is to have an effect where I have someone write something on a piece of flash paper (which is about the size of a playing card.) I hold it at my finger tips , I concentrate (read act) and it bursts into flames.

Is there such a device that can ignite the flash paper without being seen?I want the effect to look like I made it burn with my mind!

sorry if this has been discussed before but I'm hoping someone could tell me of a device that would suffice.. a device that would suffice ..(I'm a poet n I didn't know it)

There are many ways to do this, but they all have limitations of one kind or another. Jim Pace's Igniter sounds the most like what you are looking for. Here's a link to it on Jim's web site:

Rick Haslett also has some good solutions, Flashpaper's Delight or his Touch It utility may be good solutions. Here's his web site:

Whatever you end up getting, please post a review.
