Star or Colored Fire Formulas

All of the formulas listed below can just be mixed and burnt in a lose pile to produce the desired color. If they are going to be rolled into stars, follow the guidelines listed below.For stars containing Potassium Perchlorate, roll using water as a solvent. They are primed with 2 layers. The first layer is a mixture of 50% Black Powder and 50% star mix followed by a final layer of plain Black Powder about 2mm thick. Finished stars should be about 1/2" diameter.  For stars containing Potassium Chlorate, roll using water as a solvent. They are primed with 1 layer of  Black Powder about 2mm thick... ONLY AFTER THE STAR IS COMPLETELY DRY.

Do not roll these stars, and do not moisten with water. The composition is mixed with Isopropyl Alcohol (ordinary drug store variety) until a very thick paste is formed. The mass is put between 2 sheets of waxed paper and rolled flat using a rolling pin. The stars are then cut into 3/4" squares and allowed to dry. No prime is necessary, they ignite easily.
