PLAYING WITH FIRE – A VIDEO OF BURNING PAPER WITH GUNPOWDER

What you are looking at is a sheet of Okawaru Japanese paper that I have burned using gunpowder.  I lightly spritz the paper with water  and lay the gunpowder on top of it.  For this experiment I used smokeless rifle powder.  I found gunpowder is harder to find than bullets – most gunshops don’t carry powder.   Even Walmart carries bullets.  But Joel found a guy in a gunshop that had gunpowder at home so we took it all off his hands in the name of art!
