A Word From the Author:

”So what we’re going to do here is we’re going to get the torch on, one of my favorite parts like I said earlier, we’re going to start heating this and at some point I’m going to say, “Hey could you guys turn off the light?”, we’ll turn off this bright overhead light here so that you’ll actually be able to see the colors better.” — Chris Ploof
