...the SafeFlame $34.95ea + S/H
The only theatrically real flame that competes with stage lighting...
Haven't you been faced with the problem that most 'fake' candles look acceptable on a darkened stage but completely wash out under bright stage lighting? Well, I was, so I designed and built my own from the ground up.
The Advantages of SafeFlame over the competition...
And Now the flame...
As you can see from the photo on the left, the flame on the SafeFlame is a small ball of hot glue shaped to be theatrically flame like, with three wire prongs poking out of the bottom that fit into the connector on the top of the circuit board. I have found that it is very hard to photograph the brightness of the flame in bright light. This attempt looks good after the brightness and contrast has been played with a bit and gives a sense of how well the flames compete with stage lighting although it completely washes out the different colors that are used The flame can be extended anywhere by soldering three wires to the three prongs and inserting the ends of the wires into the connector. Don't worry if you get the prongs mixed up, it just won't work. You won't damage the flame. Similarly, you won't damage the circuit board if you accidentally connect the battery the wrong way round. It just won't work. This little circuit is very robust and can be mounted inside any prop by just hot gluing the underside of the circuit board to whatever. Just make sure that you don't short out any of the circuit board by placing it on any metal without a layer of insulation beneath it.
comes as a fully assembled and working device that is ready to be built into any
prop. Because of the small size of the circuit board and expertise needed
in soldering the components to it, we cannot offer it as a kit.
