Another Green Fire Video

I’ve been playing around with text in videos and learning more about editing and formats. Now… I thought about making an evil unflattering video of a family member and playing with that, but I figured it would be better to make a nice harmless fire video instead.

While I was at it, I found another video about green fire on YouTube. This one isn’t quite so harmless. If you try this project yourself (I did), be advised that the vapor pressure of the flammable compound is very high and you can expect a blast of green flame to shoot from the top of your Florence flask. Use tongs to drop the match, not fingers.
