This is a very simple trick used by many special effects artists.
In movies and concerts, there are times when you see someones name in flames. The rock band Kiss did this. Several action movies did this (especially westerns). To perform this trick is very simple. You will only need four items. You will need super glue, a lighter or match, a syringe and lighter fluid. The lighter fluid and the syringe can be optional if you have flammable super glue. You should make sure not to set yourself on fire when doing this. Be careful. That is the bottom line. First, take the syringe and fill it with lighter fluid. Inject the lighter fluid into the bottle of super glue. Close the bottle. Shake vigorously. Allow to sit for 30 to 45 minutes. Spell out your name with the glue mixture. After you have finished your handwriting portion, light the glue on fire with the lighter or match. Enjoy the image. A similiar technique was used in films such as ghost-rider and numerous mafia movies.
