Hello,

 

recently i made some sodium nitrate containing stars, and they need unbelievable long to dry. I have a wooden cabinet in my garden for garden tools, and if the sun shines on it it gets up to 80 °C (~ 175 °F) in it. Is this too hot for drying stars? Whats the max temperature you could recommend for drying stars?

Drying temperature is different for each application. The garden shed would be great for charcoal and Phenolic bound stars but terrible for metal containing stars such as glitters and strobes.
