Around three years ago I developed a liking to spinning orbs with burning wire wool. I was starting to become quite good at it until personal circumstances intervened and I had to give up. Now things have began to get back to normality, spinning fire has now become a future project to pursue. This is an old image I took at Newbiggin but shows what can be achieved with an egg whisk and burning wirewool

... the weather has to play an important part in the planning stage, a calm night is required for a little symetry in the burn. A clear sky helps to add some blue tones. Warmer times will once again see me travelling to the shore, trying to achieve the "wow" factor.

Flash. A few days ago I had every intention of using two flash units alongside the splashart kit. I have both Canon and Sigma units that would be fired by wireless transmitter. When testing both flash guns only the canon would fire. On checking bo...

After a gruelling six days of experimenting with the splashart machine, Guar gum, flash and gels I finally managed to produce something worth looking at. Today saw me move into stage 2 ..... milk. Now this stuff has qualities all of its own. Tried wi...
