Kurt is currently photographing for a project involving miniature figures of a slightly larger scale. Some of the characters require very specific elements in the background. For one of the scenes, he needed a green fire. Kurt found out that Boric Acid and Methanol mixed together and ignited would give out a green flame. The next step was to figure out a way to control the flame so it would burn tall and look natural. Kurt's trick was to mold a piece of foil paper into a thin sleeve with edges so the mixture would not spill yet low profile enough so it couldn't be noticed in the final shot.
