Hi everyone,

so i finally made some KClO3 by electrolysis, and want to use it for stars, but i can't find any formula for a blue stars. I thought maybe use copper carbonate, since i made some ages ago, but i don't know what ratios i should use.

Can anyone tell me?

 

List of my chemicals: KClO3, KNO3, S, 45µm Al, german dark, poor quality CuO, CuCO3, CuSO4, K2CO3, softwood mix CC, spruce CC, hardwood CC, FeO, Graphite powder, dextrin, PVC pipes, FIMO

Most chlorate blues I have seen have used paris green as well.
Potassium chlorate has been phased out and replaced by potassium perchlorate in most places because of sensitivity issues so most formulas use KP. Paris green is also avoided due to toxicity.

This thread has a couple of potassium chlorate blues on page 2 using the chems you have:

i know that kclo3 isnt used alot, since the sulfur incompability, but at the moment, i don't have KClO4 yet, so i wanna use my homemade KClO3. In this thread, they often use Parlon, which i don't have. Can you tell me a composition for a blue stars using the chemicals listed above?

You must not have tried very hard if you couldn't find any chlorate based blue compositions.  You may want to try google.  https://www.google.c...orate blue star

 

Also, this section is for tried and true formulas, not generic spoon feeding questions so it's getting locked.


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi
