DIY Sparkler Art // Crafting MYTH BUSTERS! Nailed It or Failed It?

– What happens if these are really good? – Oh, we’re cookin’. (dramatic music) – Hey and welcome to Nailed It, a segment where we try all those perfect things on the internet and see what it’s like when real people try them. – Usually ends up really well. – But for now on, we are going
to get these things right no matter how long it takes. – Are we? – No matter if it kills us. – Oh boy. – This was sent to us
by at least 40 people. They’re creating this
amazing art with sparklers. It’s very short and there
are no instructions. – And it looks really cool
and inspirational music and then boom here it is. – So, here is what I found
out you’ll need for supplies. Some plywood that you gotta paint. (cash register) Okay, they’re all painted! Now I’m gonna let them dry. You will need sparklers which
we found on the internet. In a spray bottle mix
the juice of one lemon and about 10 ounces of water. It doesn’t say how much water. And we have to make those subjects that will be in the foreground, let’s go make those now. Oh, matches. In that video, they used
a reindeer template. I printed out a free template and then we just have to cut them out. I got some pumpkins so maybe
we can do a pumpkin print. Penn says that cutting
these out was the worst part of his week so far. – You’ve got pumpkins and then
you’ve got Santa’s reindeer. – And now you’re making snowflakes. – Yeah and snowflakes. Is there a holiday that
encompasses all three? – Festivus? – Okay, these are Festivus. Good, very good. – Okay, I’m going to make the pole. Hang on. Here you go. – What is that? – That’s the pole. – For Festivus? – You hold onto the Festivus pole and then you tell all of your loved ones all the ways that you
disappointed them that year. – I think that I’m going to
start with some reindeer. And you’re going to spray this on and then let it
dry for five minutes. – Oh, okay. – Do I just spray the reindeer
or do I spray the whole wood? – The whole wood. (spraying) – My montage of all the holidays. – So this is Christmas,
these are two men wrestling, Halloween, Solstice. – What happens if these are really good? Like maybe we can make some extra money? Or maybe we can give these as gifts? – [Penn] I like that. So I’m feeling pretty good about mine. Is that all you’re putting on yours? – Now we have to wait. – Okay. – And talk to each other. – Whatcha been doin’? Been doing anything? – So I think it has to be dry because then the sparklers won’t light. I just wanna get this right. – Oh, we’re cookin’! – Ahhhh! – Yeah, so…. Mine aren’t lighting. – This is so cool but nothing’s happening. – They’re making lines, like weird lines. – Well hang onto those, those
could be scary dead trees. – Oh my gosh, this is terrible. Maybe there wasn’t enough lemon juice. This looks like a string of torpedoes raining down on my reindeer. – So it looks a little
bit like a skid mark. This looks like my son’s underwear the first 4 years of his life. – Maybe it needs a spray
bottle that’s more misty. And more lemon. – Alright, so we’re going to the internet. – It takes some trial and
error for the water amount. The branches are just extra
straight up lemon juice painted on with a paint brush. Oh, they cheated! I’m going to do– – So they made it look awesome
by showing the sparklers and didn’t explain that we
have to do a lot more work. New board for Penn. – New board for Penn. – I’m sticking with the old stuff. – Okay, I’m going to spray it from afar ’cause I could not find
another spray bottle. I’m going to take straight lemon juice like the cheating cheaters
of the internet did. Just kinda like brush it? – Wait, that’s after. Yeah, after. Oh, I am Bob Rossing the poop out of this. Holy cow. You take the skid marks
and you push them out. These trees are my friend. Alright, look! Now I got trees. – I wanna take one on the natural wood to see if that’s better. – Now I’m just going to do
practice, like three trees here. The stencil, they make it worse. We’re going rouge. – Alright, I’m sticking to it. Penn has given up and left. I’ve left this lemon
juice-water concoction dry. It is completely dry on the
wood so maybe that’s the key. My pumpkin is catching fire. So that’s not the answer. Nope, that’s….Nope. That was terrible. I’m beginning to think
that there are things on the internet that aren’t true. I did indeed dive and apparently
you can’t do this on wood! Turns out that that image you saw on the internet is on tile. So my husband went and got me some tile. Also, not water and lemon. Not wood, and water, and lemon. Vinegar! Here we go. Still looks pretty terrible. Nope. I’m going to do just straight up lemon. You know at the beginning of this I said I was going to do
this until it killed me, I was really just kidding. This may actually kill me. I feel like I should wait for an expert. I need to find an expert… who can help me. This is my friend Kasey from
AR Workshops in Raleigh. We have discovered that whoever originally posted this video… – It’s a fake ya’ll, there’s no way. They didn’t give you all the steps. It’s lies, it’s internet lies. – Internet lies is fakes news but we’re gonna try our very best to recreate it ’cause we
have some tips and tricks. – They must have used at
least pure lemon juice and there probably are
some secret ingredients that they did not share with us. Alright, looks more like
pencil trees verus more– I’m more modern guys. I just like a more modern forest. – Exactly. Definitely think they omitted pertinent information to get this correct. – I got professional help. – Yes. – And we think that whoever
posted this is a lying liar. If you have tried this and with success, – Yeah. please post a picture and
your exact directions. And we’ll come back,
– Yes! And recreate it. – We would love to recreate it. I think it’s fascinating. I don’t know how they did it because it’s not what’s
represented on the video at all. – This is my best try and I think the only way I
got the reindeer pretty good, is ’cause they were soaking wet. Okay, we checked in with our fancy editor friend named Luke, and Luke tells us there’s no way this is not done without special effects. Obviously, the sparklers are going faster so there’s some time lapse. (piano) Easy peasy, but where the sparklers are hitting it’s creating art and images where there aren’t sparklers. So this is done with special effects. Further evidence that the internet, they’re just lying liars. Shame on you!

  1. That was great! Was starting to worry something had happened in the hurricane as I hadn't seen any new videos posted. Glad you're all ok.
    So I have an idea…you guys could transition to a new type of video – Debunking Internet Crafts!

  2. Iโ€™ve seen this craft on Facebook and I thought of you guys โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜…

  3. Wait, everything isn't true on the internet?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although this maybe the first time I've seem some use special FX to fake a craft.

  4. My hubby wanted to try this and man imma just tell him to forget it. Liars mcliarson from liars ville. Dang. Thanks holderness fam for exposing them.

  5. Check out this video. Maybe they painted the tree branches with the lemon juice and placed the sparklers on the canvas before it completely dried.
    Now I want to try it. Lol

  6. darn liars! looked so cool too, wonder what would happen with sparklers and rubbing alcohol? besides possibly burning the house down… and Kim, to make the squirt bottle spray a mist you turn the nozzle it sprays from. righty tighty, lefty loosy. more righty means finer spray, more lefty means more stream. you don't need a different spray bottle.

  7. I just saw this… I've always wanted to try this but I've never had the courage to. I love nailed it!!!! I hope you guys are okay after Florence โ™ฅ๏ธ

  8. Iโ€™m going to take up for yโ€™all and say thatโ€™s why MOST OF YOUR STUFF DOESNโ€™T WORK! Haha!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚โ˜บ๏ธ

  10. I haven't tried it, but I get the impression that the branches are painted on with lemon juice FIRST – so maybe try that? See Steve Spangler Secret Message with lemon juice:

  11. I have no idea if this will work but it looks cool

  12. I had wanted to try this as well but couldn't find good instructions. I had a thought right at the end though because I remember a few years ago I did a super secret spy activity with my kids. You write a message on paper with lemon juice, let it dry and then VERY carefully heat the paper with a flame. The lemon juice turns brown (just like the cheating cheater artwork) and you can read the message. I wondered if they painted the trees with lemon juice and then used the sparklers as the heat source to burn the lemon juice and make the trees show up…

  13. Iโ€™m so in love with u guys and so is my mum ur a realistic family bloggers wish we all love โค๏ธ me and my mum try most of the diys u try and were in Australia by the why and thx u for being hilarious and relatable love u guys

  14. I think it's funny how Penn's shoes were slowly creeping off but never made it all the way off, true talent hahaha

  15. I saw this and it reminded me of the Fractal art being made by burning wood through electric microwave motors. It's so beautiful but very danderous. They are pretty expensive to buy as well if you wanna by one already made. They do sell machines that do it but very expensive. This is a bummer cause i thought it looked real. Thanks so much for showing it was a dud before i went out and bought all the stuff..

  16. I just read on the website of the people who did this artwork, they said they painted the branches with straight up lemon juice before they did the sparklers.

  17. found the instructions on Facebook. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1 Canvas "Sized" piece of Birch
    Plywood….(ONLY Wood, No Canvas)
    1 Can of White Spray Paint
    1 Spray Bottle

    2 Sheets Printer/Stencil
    Paper (+/-)
    6 Sparklers (+/-)
    [Note: Don't use the Paper
    Wrapped Sparklers,
    they're not hot enough]
    1 Vented Work Space
    1 Hours Time to Complete

    1. Paint Plywood w/ White
    Paint and let dry.
    2. Print & Cut Out Stencils.

    (Caution: Dont use 2 much!)
    Let Stencils Dry, 15-20 mins..
    5. Once Dry, play with the
    placements of the Sparklers
    before you light them, mark
    those areas with a pencil dot.
    6. Once happy with Sparkler
    Placement, use the Lighter
    to ignite the Sparklers &
    lay them down very quickly.
    7. Once done burning, remove
    Sparklers and Stencils, gently
    blow off any remaining ashes.
    8. If satisfied, Spray a Clear
    Coat to seal, let dry & hang….Violร !

  18. Thanks for showing this does not work. My wife wanted to me make her some of these. I'm glad I saw this video and didn't have to waist any time.

  19. I wish I had have seen this before I bought the supplies and tried it….without success, of course. Smh. Great video and I'm definitely subscribing!

  20. damn – just bought all the stuff to have a go! still gunna try, but thanks for the demo – made me laugh
    gunna subscribe now to your channel and see what else you come up with crafty myth buster.

  21. image shows up where there are No sparkler's LOL sparklers are made up from potassium perchlorate, titanium ( or) aluminum, and dextrin.. your using the wrong ones… LMFAO Now ya got all the dopes below believing you over something you Fk'd Up….LOL

  22. I may have found the missing link!!!!!!! You paint with lemon and use a candle for it to show up!!

  23. Yep, I tried it. No it didn't work! Why would people make a fake video like that? Why not show the entire process? To me, omission is the same as a lie. Bunch of Liars! Love to know who originally posted it, but they're likely in hiding by now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I know how this is done. They are using homemade 'invisible ink' (usually this ink is brown or black). The trees are painted legit (by hand with a paintbrush, and likely the artist can't even see if they will turn out well, because they are doing it blind), then the heat of the sparkler (possibly in combination with the acidity of lemon juice) makes the ink/image visible. Sorry guys. There is no magical short cut to making fantastically realistic looking trees. These trees are all hand painted. The only trick is the magical 'reveal'.

    Looks more like drawing with lemon juice and heating it. So… maybe they drew the trees with lemon juice and had some super sparklers that got really hot?

  26. Youโ€™re supposed to paint on the branches with pure lemon juice first and then spray the board with watered down lemon juice.

  27. I tried this and got the same results as you did. Then i just painted the trees on with straight lemon juice and heated up the area with a torch until the trees started to turn brown and it basically looked like how the orgional did. The only differnce was they spent alot more time painting the trees than I did.

  28. Iโ€™m a huge fan โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  29. I saw this sparkler art on a random collage of clips on you tube and thought…I want to try this. As I researched it I found this channel. Thank you so much. You may have burst my bubble, but saved me lots of money and time. Subscribed!

  30. A solution of baking soda and water should give you the results you want. Board should be wet when you place sparklers down. Give it a try, sorry but I don't know the ratio. It does work with electricity burn in art, maybe it will work with your sparklers?

  31. I'm sure they might have drawn trees first with a gunpowder solution kind of thing which wasn't visible first but when it came in contact with sparklers, it burnt and left burnt marks (which are supposed to be the trees) Go give this idea a try. Here's a referral video.
