Pyroboard/2D Rubens Tube. Safety is Important. Yes

So, a year ago I aspired to make this. On and off again I've been at it and here's what I got so far:
- A working sound system
- A large metal box (50 x 50 x 20 cm) with 1mm thick holes about a cm apart at the top. Welded and sealed with fireproof sealant.
-The realization that safety was not the number one concern up until now.
From what I understand the most dangerous point of operation for the box would be lighting it initially as there would be oxygen and fuel inside it, potentially exploding(?) and when closing it as the flames may go back into the fuel tank. I plan on implementing a flashback arrestor, like the oxyacetylene welders use, and a regulator valve to take care of the latter, but the former frightens me a bit.
Low gas pressure, no initial sound going in, and a fire extinguisher seems to be the consensus for general safety(As far as the vanilla rubens tubes are concerned), but I'd like all the help I can get for this to go well. Between how far I've come and the potential danger I don't want this to be another project that goes unfinished.
TL;DR how do I not die?

My best friend's wedding is coming up, and for a gift, I wanted to alter Hopper's Nighthawks painting to include him and his soon to be wife (the painting has special significance for him). There are many parodies of the painting that have minor modifications, but I am incredibly unsavy when it comes to these things, and I am not sure how they were created. Google is doing very little for me, so could anyone point me in the right direction on how to get started with this project?
