Adding flame finish to granite block.

I have some granite steps that we had the tops flame finished on. The riser portion we chose not to. They have chipped slightly and I'm thinking they would look better with a flame finish. I've been told that I can just take an oxy-acetylene torch with a rosebud tip and heat up the face until it spalls to get the finish. I'm handy with a torch and have a large oxy-acetylene rig but I'm worried about ruining the steps. Is it as easy as I've been told. Do I dare try it? My wife will kill me if they end up looking worse. We live about 300 miles from anybody who knows how to do this so it will cost plenty to get someone up here to do it.
