Amanda of Elemental Photography and Design created this tutorial for making your own TranspArt flame:
I wanted to try my hand at dying TranspArt and then turning those pieces into a flame prop for photos. If you want to make one yourself, these are the steps!
Cut out some basic flamey shapes out of paper. Use them to get an idea of how big you want your finished piece to be.
Dye your TranspArt. For a tutorial on dying, click here!
Heat and shape your pieces around one another, pressing the bottoms together. (I shaped mine around a small ball of parchment paper to help keep the middle open.) If you have trouble joining pieces, you can use hot glue for this.
If you want a handle, I used a strip of TranspArt and then covered it with thin peach spandex.
Congrats, you have a hand flame thing! You can also build an LED into it for additional effect. (I just tucked a red LED under mine for photos)
