This wand is an effect on its own. Fire travels up the wand and a flash of fire emits from the end. Nice wooden wand brass tipped, great for making things appear. PLEASE NOTE: In Australia, the only effect is shooting a flame across the stage etc or a fireball effect near the end of the wand. Requires flash paper and flash string. To produce the smoke effect requires Black Powder 4F grade, not available to people who do not hold shooters/SFX licences.
