“On the first occasion it nearly didn’t work at all because I used kerosene and it doesn’t burn very well. But, in the back of the utility that I had borrowed, there was a can of boat lacquer. It is like auto lacquer – it’s sticky and it burns very brightly. The whole thing was a bit of a happy accident”

– Tim Storrier as quoted in Lou Klepac’s monograph ‘Tim Storrier’ (page 72)
