You could also try using a neutral density filter or an enhancing filter. I don't know if all of them are, but some enhancing filters are made with didymium glass. But you might be able to get neutral density gels fairly cheap and stock them to get the density you want. You could also try gradient ND filters so that the flame is reduced but the artist in not. A polarizer filter might also help. On occasion (non-glass shots) I've used a Lee filter holder and different gels and a polarizer to get different results. If you had a filter holder (you can also hold gels by hand) you can stack different filters and it might give you some interesting results.

It's said that there is an artist inside each of us...unfortunately, mine left years ago and I've not seen him since.
