So, the questions:
Firstly, I was thinking of something like Everclear, or maybe vodka, for the alcohol, since it has to sting and have a high enough proof to ignite. (Everclear can be bought up to 95% alcohol, not in the US but the specific country doesn't really matter) What color would the flames be? Orange? Blue? I've looked up flaming shots, and I've seen both. Also, if you have a suggestion for a drink that would work better, I'm all ears.
Secondly, the damage. If it's at all possible, I would like man #1 to survive the whole ordeal. I'm assuming that it's plausible, if man #2 didn't leave him alight for too long...right? I would like him to suffer from superficial partial thickness burns, meaning it effects the epidermis and upper dermis (a second degree burn), any idea how much time it would take to cause something like that? Would the scars from the carving of the name be visible beneath the burns? I'm thinking that the cuts were pretty deep, but looking at some of the burn scars, I wonder if it matters. As you can imagine, it makes for some interesting googling.
Thank you all in advance!!
