Hey everyone
I'm a little new to fire stuff.
anyways often you will see a magician on stage produce a small fire ball which travels down a want, or a cane or a candle, it travels right across it. Can anyone tell me what it's called and where I can get info on it? thanks

Flash string or flash cord is used. Flash cord is thicker and stronger than Flash string.

If using a solid wand/cane/candle, you can create a small groove to place the string/cord into. If using a disapearing item, you attach it to the top and bottom. It doesn't look as good, though, because it likes to swing free once it starts burning.
