Blender3D has lots and lots of cool functions and features. While some are obvious, others are hidden pretty well. This effect is one of those “nuggets”. It is a really cool lighting effect that looks somewhat like a sparkler.
Blender has a great material editor for changing the way your models look. You can import other models easily, which is another great feature. I just recently found a website that has a bunch of free materials to download.
