Pyrotex , I just put enough water in order to have a thick dough, just enough to get it as cut stars. Didn't weighted the water. Once I'll shoot your comp bonded with PVB, I'll let you know how it worked out

I tried substituting dextrine with phenolic resin and the result is not bad, burning time reduce a little cause the phenolic effect on combustion, but in few hours stars are hard. May a mix of dextrine and phenolic solve both problem. I found this stars are better if made like comet (pressed) whit a max 10% of water and alcool.

Should have been using straight Alcohol with Phenolic.

With Dextrin i use straight water, and seems like my stars are harder.

I love Sunrise Yellow.

There are very few problems that cant be solved with explosives.
                             Explosives are a bang up job.

I have only made these stars by pressing and use dextrin and 5 % water  then in the dry box and have never had a problem. found a 25 kilo bag of sodium nitrate locally now I don't have make my own. a lot more yellow stars in my future.

My favorite yellow, much better than mixing colors to get it.
Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

The sodium is an optic yellow so he's cool with that I think. It's the blended ones that get his dander up.
I could have that backwards but although he might kill me, he can't eat me.

I still have a bag of Baking Soda labeled "Lloyd's Favorite" from a couple years ago, so that probably means he hates it.   :P
