How to Make Dragon Beard Candy: Step 3

Is it slight of hand or years of practice that explains how Johnny Chin transforms a chunk of jelly goo into 8,192 paper thin strands in 40 seconds? Pulling and twisting the gunk in a figure 8 motion, doubling it 13 times, my eyes couldn't keep up with the "secret" of dragon beard candy. And Johnny swears the number is accurate, "remember, I was a controller!"

And now, for the dragon beard filling.
