In this trick, the magician produces a huge shower of sparks in his fist, which has to be seen to be believed. But it is dangerous, so you should understand exactly what you are getting into if you decide to include this in your act. You should not use this effect indoors without taking a lot of precautions. It's much too easy to ignite stage curtains or anything else in the area. You must wear an entire outfit made of flame-retardant cloth and wear heavy dark glasses; welder's goggles are best.

The illustration shows how to construct and perform the spark effect. You can walk around the stage doing other tricks while wearing the hidden wiring under your clothes. Put the glove on and pick up the the ball of steel wool. Walk over to the metal plates on the stage and stand on them, thus completing the circuit. At once, sparks will be produced. Hold your well-protected arm as far away from your body as you can and crumple the ball. An instant shower of bright sparks appears.

CAUTION: You need to perform this effect deep back in the stage to prevent a spark from hitting someone in the audience. If you do this outdoors, beware of wind, which will carry the sparks. Use this with caution, folks; it's extremely dangerous.
