Here's a simple step by step guide to practising burn offs:

to be performed outdoors and away from any overhead obstructions and away from other people.
make sure you have your fire safety gear available eg. fire blanket, wet towel, fire extinguisher.
dip your wicks in Firelight.
light up your wicks away from your fuel source.
hold your left hand out in front of you and place the centre of the staff in your palm.
then place your right hand on top of the left hand and staff.
now roll the staff using your top hand as fast as you can, trying to isolate the spin of the staff so that it stays in the same spot.
the fast spinning of the staff will spray off the excess fuel and the flames from the wicks light up the fuel.
looks amazing and your audience will say 'ooooooooh'
