I have actually been to 2 different workshops where we used mousse for fire play. I just forgot which brand we used. And actually Ms. Nye the science gal. I am a science teacher and know about safety, which is why I came on here to ask rather than just pick up a random can or 3 and risk burning someone.
At least that last part was good.
Right off of the top, I have to make this comment. While I understand that everybody is different, I'd have went about this another way. If you went to two different workshops about this particular kind of play, I'm curious as to why you didn't contact the presenter(s) who conducted the class material. Even on the random chance that you don't remember the presenter's names, something very weird to me because any topping skill I've acquired over the years, I can assure you that I can name at least three people that I've ever attended a workshop about the subject, you should at least know where you attended, what (for lack of a better term) group/organization that held the event, that can put you in touch with who gave the presentation.
Are you still in AK? If you are, and you attended an event within the state, let's face it, it's not that hard for you to contact whatever organizer that held the event. (There's not a whole sh^tload up there as far as events that have these kinds of opportunities that a person couldn't contact whoever held the class through whomever held it.) If you traveled outside of AK for the workshops, don't you know where you went so you could contact people from geographical location???
I get that I'm old-fashioned about this subject. However, the entire JOB of a presenter is to educate. It's not to stand up in front of a bunch of people, doing something flashy (and fire play is flashy) to impress people with "look what I can do". If that's the case, they didn't "teach" you anything.
This aside, let's talk about science. Most people wouldn't take me for a chick who digs science, but personally, I find how we interweave WIITWD with science to be absolutely fascinating! Believe it or not, I'm not just a pretty face.
If you're serious about lighting somebody up, there's more to consider besides, "oh, that's sexually exciting," or whatever. (An activity that turns you on because you watched a couple of people do it, doesn't make you qualified to conduct the activity.) You LOOK at the chemical components and make DECISIONS based on the information.
I'll go for three. Why would you ever depend on an open cattle call for information, rather than relying on people that you KNOW can do a thing?
