Fire is one of the elements.To be able to use or control fire in any way is inherently magical. So many magic tricks can be enhanced by adding fire; you can add fire magic tricks to a vanish or production to really pack a punch. If you have the ability to produce a flame without any known form of ignition, then that in itself is magic.
Fire is mesmerising.
We as humans find fire absolutely mesmerising. How many times have you just stared straight into the flames of a fire and just been lost in your thoughts? Fire is almost hypnotic. Our brains are pretty much hard wired to feel this, ever since the caveman era fire has been one of the most astonishing and amazing things known to man.
Fire Magic Tricks get great reactions.
It is a fact; fire magic tricks get great reactions!! Add a burst of flame or fire to any magic trick and it will instantly get a reaction. People gasp and stare in awe; it can be very similar to seeing a good firework! Usually a burst of flames comes as a shock and catches the spectators off guard, that coupled with a magical production of any sort (maybe a rose or a coin being produced from the flames) will guarantee you a great reaction.
Fire Magic Tricks are great misdirection.
Fire can also be used to cover sleights and is great misdirection that should be taken advantage of. If you are palming an item you wish to produce, why not turn these magic tricks into fire magic tricks? Add a burst of flame from a piece of flash paper or flash string. This is a great way to enhance the magic and cover the move.
Fire Magic tricks attract lots of attention.
If you wish to attract attention from people, whether you are performing in public or just for friends there are few better ways to do this than using fire magic. Lighting up a fire wallet up in public is sure to immediately attract attention. The flames will draw a spectator’s eye from anywhere in the room instantly as it is a defence mechanism in our brains to be aware as soon as a flame appears, you cannot help it, so why not take advantage of it!
