Pair Experiments With Lighting Their Hands on Fire While Using Starlite

This super-material can be made using baking soda, corn starch, and glue.

In this incredibly cool, or should we say hot, video, The King of Random team experiments with quite literally lighting their hands on fire

The duo recreates a substance called Starlite, an intumescent material claimed to be able to withstand and insulate from extreme heat. Watching it in motion feels like seeing a miracle in real life.

Having seen the recipe from another channel, they dive into experiments they can do with it and it is quite the wild ride. The main question is "Will Starlite protect your hand if you blow torch it?" and that is bound to get your heart racing right away.

It is amazing how a recipe that includes baking soda, corn starch, and glue can be made into a miraculously fireproof substance. Tune in to be amazed!

As they say in the video, however, "We are playing with fire, we are playing with torches. We are doing things that are dangerous. Don't do this at home! Just don't do this, don't do this!" Also, you shouldn't do this at someone else's home either.
