Various mistakes made in attempting fireballs

This is "backdraft"-- fire going into the noise. This is caused by being too close to the ignition source (visible in the lower left). Expelling liquid out the mouth causes air to be pulled in through the noise. This leads to the risk of inhaling burning gasses.

There are three flames in this picture. The dark flames in the center are the remnants of the fireball; airborne and no threat. The bright flame center bottom is the ignition source; also no threat. Just to the left of the ignition source are darker flames. This is the wall on fire. This shot was very rich, causing unburned fuel to hit the wall and start it on fire.

A failed shot. The fuel stream ignited and fell to the floor, starting a fire. This happens from the shot being too rich (i.e. not creating a mist).

The aftermath of the first time this chair started on fire. Note the burn marks on the floor as well. Eventually, this chair was unusable due to the extensive burning.
