Hey guys!

I'm just wanting to pick the brains of those more knowledgeable than I in this area:

What is the best way to light a large strip (50cm by 10cm) of flash paper on cloth without burning or ruining the cloth?

I'm fine applying a substance to or modifying the cloth somewhat, but I do not want to put out any flames in the end. I'd need the flash paper to burn and that's all.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions brothers!

Stay safe,

Use a cloth that's not easy burning, as wool or cotton and make it fire resistant
There are special liquids therefore (they are used in theaters to make the curtains fire resistant)

Using a kevlar cloth will give you the most fire protection, as it is the same material that firefighters wear. Also, you could always pour some water on it beforehand to dampen the surface.
Hope this helps.

Do not use water. Water + heat = steam which burns worse than just fire on the skin.

John Wills' advice was correct - use a natural fiber cloth and for extra protection treat it with chemicals. Test any fabrics treated with chemicals for skin irritation after applying it.
