I noticed that this very nice formula is not listed in this forum.
This is NOT my creation! All credits go to Lloyd Sponenburgh.
Name of composition: Fairy Fountain
Composition Type: Slow fountain/Waterfall
Creator: Lloyd Sponenburgh
Color/Effect: Waterfall of golden sparks with occational bright blue-ish sparks.
Procedure/Preparation: Screen-mix the ingredients except the Titanium. Add Titanium as the last thing and shake the composition. Do NOT put Titanium through your screens!
Wet with water.
KNO3 - 44%
Charcoal - 40%
Sulfur - 6%
Dextrin - 6%
Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) - 3%
Titanium (Spherical Sponge) - 1%
These fountains don't do well if you make them too wide, or if you make the nozzle too narrow.
If the nozzle is too narrow, the sparks will tend to burn themself out before leaving the tube.
And if the tube is too wide, it seems like the effect is dissapating: The same amount of sparks now over a larger area. Obviously, this is not what is actually happening. But that is my visual description of why it's not working well.
1"-tubes is what I consider to be the largest functional for this fountain. But you can make several of them side-by-side.
You can add more Ti to spike it up with extra blue-ish sparks.
I found that 10% is the limit for what I think looks nice.
Here is a video of the procedure and final product. Once again, not my work:
