Lump of coal? Coal dust?

Think about it: it is not possible to ignite a timber, but splinter will ignite right away.

I used light coal instead of powder. Am lighting it using a candle wick on top of it .. Doing that I noticed 2 things , the string make a smell and it is hard to stick the candle wick on top of the coal. Is there a solution for those 2 problems ??

If I mix the candle wick with oily perfume, would that change the smell ??
How can I stick the candle wick to the coal ?? is there a way ?

Do not repeat not try using petroleum with a match, unless you want a Darwin Award.
