    The effects are great here. In addition to the flying sparks etc (which are always cool), the ground you are sanding on is superb for providing some texture and reflections. That aspect sets these apart from others I have seen in this style.

    Do you soak the steel wool in anything or does it burn that easily?

    #1 for me BTW, great shot!!!

    Burns very easily. You can actually light it with a 9V battery (have this in my camping gear) Once it is smoldering and you start spinning it around the light show begins!

    I've always wanted to try some in bicycle spokes at speed. That would be cool, but I expect there'd be a price to pay for a stunt like that.

    Fun play. Looks like it could be dangerous if you didn't know what you were doing.
